Samsung releases One UI 6 Beta for Galaxy S21 Series

Google is going to release the official Android 14 soon, and other OEMs are also gearing up to follow the Android 14 release. Last month, Samsung initiated Android 14-based One UI 6 Beta testing, starting with the Galaxy S23 series. Now, the One UI 6 Beta is also available for the Galaxy S21 series.

This week, the One UI 6 beta was also rolled out for the Galaxy S22 series. This means that now there are five Galaxy lineups that have received the One UI 6 beta, including the Galaxy A54 and Galaxy A34. We can anticipate more devices joining the party in the near future.

Similar to the Galaxy S22 series, the One UI 6 beta for the Galaxy S21 series is initially available in South Korea. It is expected to become available in other regions shortly, where the beta is already accessible for the Galaxy S23. The Galaxy S21 series, released as a flagship lineup in 2021, comprises three models, and the beta is accessible for all of them.

One UI 6 is a big update for Galaxy phones and Samsung’s take on Android 14. As you would expect from a major Android upgrade, One UI 6 also comes with various improvements and new features. Some notable features are redesigned Quick Settings layout, change clock location in lock screen, improved animation, more customization, set different background for different modes, set of new Emojis, New Media Playback in notification panel, and more. You can check everything about the new major One UI update from the dedicated One UI 6 page.

Currently, I don’t have specific information about the Galaxy S21 One UI 6 beta update, such as the update size or firmware version. However, it’s worth noting that the update should be readily available to users as soon as they register for the beta program, without wait.
