It appears that Samsung has finally launched the much-anticipated Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta for its Galaxy S23 series after a recent false alarm that had initially indicated the release. This update brings along a host of exciting features and visual improvements.
The new Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta showcases a revamped Quick Settings panel and notifications system. The Quick Panel has been restructured into distinct panels, featuring large buttons for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, separated from the primary grid. Beneath this, users will find a customizable grid and screen brightness control, along with new buttons for device control. These buttons facilitate easy access to SmartThings, Google Home, and screen mirroring options, providing users with convenient control options.
Furthermore, some enticing features are highlighted in the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update. These include:
- New Default Font: The update introduces a new default font for a fresh visual appearance.
- New Emoji in Samsung Keyboard: Users can expect a fresh batch of emojis in the Samsung Keyboard.
- Quick Settings Accessibility: Accessing the Quick Settings panel is now streamlined, requiring just a single swipe from the top right corner of the screen.
- Lock Screen Customization: Users can now set different lock screens based on Modes and Routines, allowing for greater personalization.
- Custom Camera Widget: A new camera widget is available with presets for camera modes and saving locations, enhancing the camera experience.
The rollout of Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta has commenced in select regions, including the United States, South Korea, and Germany, specifically for the Galaxy S23 series. Samsung plans to expand the beta to additional regions in the upcoming weeks. Galaxy S23 owners interested in participating can register for the beta program through the Samsung Members app. Notifications will be sent out once the update becomes available in their respective regions.
As the beta program expands, comprehensive tutorials will be provided to guide users through the process of installing the new update on their Galaxy S23 devices. Stay tuned for more updates and information regarding this exciting software upgrade.
