In a big update, Samsung is releasing the One UI 5.0 beta software update for Galaxy S22 series smartphones. The Android 13-based beta version is now rolling out in South Korea & Germany. It is a big surprise for users, as Samsung first gives prior notice to users that the beta testing program will start soon. Later, after a few weeks, it was officially released. This year, it has directly dispatched a beta version. It may be because of the delay in the previously scheduled schedule.
In a new One UI 5.0 beta version, users can test new features, changes, and other services before others. It brings changes to the notification center, app icons, increased background opacity, and many more.
The Optical character recognition, app permission pop-up menu, improvements in the Gallery app, and speed and smoothness in animation are major highlights in the Android 13 version. Some changes have directly borrowed from Google’s Android 13 skin.
The users of Galaxy S22, S22+ & S22 Ultra can apply and download the beta firmware version. You can identify the new beta version by S90*BXXU2ZHV4 firmware number. It is an initial build, so there may be some bugs in the software code.
Samsung will soon release a beta update for Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphones. It will soon roll out in other countries in the coming days. In supported countries, it will be available in the US, UK, Poland, India & China.
