Following a minor delay, Samsung announces that the One UI 6 beta program has begun. This new version of Android is based on this year’s Android 14 release. The design has been streamlined, and there are more choices for customization.
In terms of design, “many elements have been tweaked to create a more modern look and feel,” Samsung stated in a press release. This contains new emoji that you can access using the Samsung Keyboard as well as a new default typeface. The Quick Panel’s appearance has also been modified by the company to make it simpler to access frequently used features.
One UI 6’s customization options sound a lot like what you can do with the iPhone’s Focus modes and lock screens, allowing you to select certain lock screens that are linked to particular Modes and Routines.
Unfortunately, for now, the One UI 6 beta will only be accessible on Samsung’s Galaxy S23 range; if you were planning to purchase one of Samsung’s most recent foldables, you may want to wait a while. However, if you reside in the US, Germany, or South Korea and own an S23 phone, you are currently “invited to join” the One UI 6 beta program.
