The official release of the stable version of Android 13 from Google took place on August 15, but the first update of the One UI 5 interface to its main ones was released only after more than two months – on October 24, and only for the Galaxy S22 line. Since then, Samsung has started actively updating its smartphones to Android 13, and in fact, the deployment of One UI 5 has become the fastest in the history of the manufacturer. However, the company wants to make it even faster next year.
Samsung published in Korea a message boasting how quickly it managed to release One UI 5 on as many models as possible, and stated that it intends to release future versions of One UI even faster and on more devices at the same time.
In recent years, the company has put more emphasis on software, increasing support for updates. This year, Samsung promised that some Galaxy models will receive new versions of Android and One UI within 4 years. Including:
- Galaxy S series: Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra, as well as Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra, S21 FE and future models of the line;
- Galaxy Fold and Flip models: Galaxy Fold3, Galaxy Z Flip3 and the new Fold4 and Flip4, as well as future models;
- Galaxy A series: future models of the line;
- Galaxy tablets: Galaxy Tab S8, S8+, S8 and future models of the line.
In this way, Samsung plans not only to extend the life cycle of its popular models, but also to speed up the release of updates for them.
