That’s right. For a few minutes now, hundreds of users of the Galaxy S23 series have begun to report the arrival of the new version of One UI. As expected, the company has started rolling out One UI 6 for the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra. Our editorial team has been able to test it on the Ultra model firsthand. It will gradually roll out to the rest of the devices in the range.
Starting with the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung has given the green light to launch the latest One UI alongside Android 14. As usual, the update is likely to roll out over the next few days or weeks to the rest of the Galaxy S23 series, including the base and Plus models.
To do this, follow these steps:
As for the changes introduced in One UI 6, the list is quite extensive and can be seen in full on this Samsung page. In general, the company has wanted to focus its innovations on the user experience, starting with applications such as Camera and Settings, as well as the quick settings panel and the notification panel. All of these feature a more intuitive design and certain usability improvements.
Another significant change comes with the typography, which now renews to a style closer to native Android. Customization possibilities with colors and widgets are also expanded, and numerous new features are introduced in the native browser, My Files app, Calendar, Reminders, and Weather. Gallery, Video Player, Studio, and Photo Editor applications also undergo a facelift with new functionalities. The security patch, by the way, is from November.
