Last week, Samsung officially introduced its Android 13-based One UI 5.0 skin at its annual Developer Conference event – SDC. The company had confirmed that a stable build will be released by the end of this month. Yes, the public update of One UI 5.0 is coming to the Galaxy S22 in a matter of time. Before releasing the stable build, the firm has pushed the fifth and most probably the last beta to the Galaxy S22. If your Galaxy S22 series phone is running on the One UI 5 beta, then you can now upgrade to beta 5.
The new beta build is labeled with the ZVJA firmware version number and weighs around 471MB in size. For the time being, the latest beta build is available in China, it will be available in the other regions within a few hours or in a day or two. The information about the new update has been shared by the famous leakster – Ice Universe and as per the changelog, the upgrade comes with a bunch of improvements.
Samsung addresses a bunch of issues available on the previous beta builds, including the camera autofocus issue, fixed the issue where you can not add fingerprints, no unlock sound issue has also been fixed, the water plugin force closing issue, the loud sound issue on calling, “Close All” is not showing in multitasking, removed Bixby text calls, and more. Here’s the complete changelog, we translated it into English.
