Numerous smartphones have already received Samsung’s One UI 5.0, which is based on Android 13, but the deployment only began a few weeks ago in October. Nevertheless, a recent source claims that Samsung is already testing One UI 5.1, the upgrade to One UI 5.0.
The Galaxy S23 family, which should be unveiled on February 1 if previous speculations are true, may in fact have the One UI 5.1 debut. Moving from One UI 5.0 to One UI 5.1 in a matter of weeks would undoubtedly be a swift transition.
However, as the slight increase suggests, One UI 5.1 won’t likely be as significant an improvement as its predecessor was. However, Samsung has already suggested that One UI 5.1 will include some additional lock screen customization features. Even though One UI 5.0 is also based on Android, it might incorporate the new media player widget design from Android 13 that was left out of that version.
The Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra are now undergoing testing for the One UI 5.1 update with firmware version S90xEXXU2CVL7 (where the “x” is a different number depending on which model you have). Samsung’s servers have revealed this test firmware, which might be made available to the S22 family a few days after the S23 series debuts. The new gadgets typically receive first dibs on the new software, but that only lasts a short while.
