What you need to know

  • Samsung is gearing up to release One UI 5 (in beta) in the coming weeks.
  • The Galaxy S22 series are likely the first ones to get it.
  • A new hands-on of the One UI 5 has been spotted.
  • It brings minor improvements in terms of design.

One UI 5 is the next Android-based interface for Samsung’s Galaxy phones, and we expect the first betas to roll out for Galaxy devices a couple of weeks from now. Per multiple reports (opens in new tab), the upcoming software iteration is likely to be released in the third week of July. Other sources have said that the software build has already been provided (opens in new tab) to the team internally.

Now, there’s a new build obtained by the folks at 9to5Google. It’s seemingly the latest One UI 5 beta that sets the tone for what to expect from eligible Galaxy devices on the software front. The report suggests that this beta build was provided by an anonymous source and assures it might not be the actual version that the consumers would get down the line. So, consider all the information with a grain of salt, as some might not eventually see the light of day.
