Samsung has yet to announce an official list of eligible Galaxy devices to get the Android 13 update, but it’s expected that current-gen flagships will receive their stable OTAs before the end of the year. The company will likely bring a handful of other devices into the beta phase, including older flagships and even some mid-rangers, before the eventual stable release. The South Korean brand has become proactive with its software updates in the past few years, and this time as well, it is quick to start working on the new version called One UI 5.0. The company will be testing the new version with a host of beta testers in the coming weeks, to fix all the bugs and issues before preparing the package for a public release.




  • The One UI 5.0 beta version gets a host of cosmetic changes to match that of the Android 13 version.
  • The colour palette options have increased, giving users more choices.
  • There are improvements with the widgets for Samsung phone users as well.
  • The caller-ID box has also been redesigned with a send message button along with the receive/reject icons.
  • Android 13 is expected to be part of the phones launching from October onwards, with the Pixel 7 series likely to be the first device to get it out of the box.


  • Samsung says that to test the beta version you need an unlocked version of the eligible Samsung Galaxy phones.
  • If you tick all those boxes, head over to the Samsung Members app and see if the beta version is available for your region.
  • You have to enroll for the program quickly, as Samsung is likely to offer limited seats for the beta testing.
  • The company will ask you to download the first beta version manually. You can do that by going to Settings – Software update – Download and Install.
  • Make sure to back up the data on your phone, and once the installation is completed, the phone will restart and give you Android 13 for testing.
