It’s that time of the year when everyone is excited about the next big Android upgrade to arrive on their phones. Or rather, given how quick Samsung has worked on bringing the update to its device, it’s actually time for the next Android upgrade — Android 13, with Samsung’s One UI 5.0 skin on top — to start rolling out publicly for at least the Galaxy S22 series before the end of October and multiple other devices before 2023.
For now, though, Samsung is busy beta testing One UI 5.0 on many of its devices. In the third week of October alone, Samsung has launched the beta program for numerous devices, including new phones like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and relatively older ones like the Galaxy S20 series, and it can get confusing trying to figure out whether the beta program is available for your Galaxy smartphone.
Well, we’re here to help. We’ve compiled a list of every Samsung Galaxy phone that has been included in the One UI 5.0 beta program so you can find out if the beta is available for your device.
Samsung Galaxy phones getting One UI 5.0 beta updates
- Galaxy S22 series
- Galaxy S21 series
- Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Galaxy Z Flip 4
- Galaxy Z Flip 3
- Galaxy S20
- Galaxy Note 20
- Galaxy A52
Enrolling into the program and downloading the first beta involves registering in the Samsung Members app first (look for the One UI 5 beta banner and hit the Enrol button). Keep in mind that these beta programs are limited to certain regions, such as the UK, Germany, Poland, the USA, China, and India.
If you don’t see any banner in Samsung Members, you can assume that your market doesn’t have the beta available, in which case you’ll have to wait for the official public release. In some cases, you may be able to register for the beta program but the actual first beta update will take a few days to appear on your phone.
As more devices get One UI 5.0, we will update the list accordingly. The same goes when a device’s beta period is over and they get the official update; we will remove that specific phone from the list. For now, check out all the devices that are coming on your pirate ship.
