Samsung has already started testing Android 13 based One UI 5 on its devices. Earlier this month, Samsung released One UI 5 open beta for the Galaxy S22 series. Samsung also started closed beta testing for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 this month. And now the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the new entry in One UI 5 closed beta testing (Internal testing).
Android 13 comes with many new features and it is already available for Pixel phones. This means that Samsung will now speed up the process of releasing the stable One UI 5 for its Galaxy devices soon. And this year Samsung is well ahead of last year’s One UI 4 roll out.
There is no doubt that the Galaxy S22 series will be the first Galaxy series to get the Android 13 based stable One UI 5. But Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also one of the other Galaxy that is likely to get One UI 5.0 soon. And the Galaxy Z Fold 3 internal testing is the first step. It is being tested behind the door means it is not available to users but only to Samsung’s internal team.
Since the closed beta is underway, we can expect the One UI 5 open beta for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 by next month. And after a month or two, the stable One UI 5 will be available on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to get the update in October or November.
There are many reasons to be excited. One UI 5 comes with some new features which also include the features of stock Android 13. Since One UI 5.0 open beta is available for Galaxy S22, we can guess the features. New features include more color palettes, stack widgets, notification permissions by apps, and more.
