Samsung started testing the One UI 5.0 beta on its flagship Galaxy S22 series in the second week of this month. It was first available in Germany, South Korea, and then in the US. And now the second beta of One UI 5.0 goes live and it is seeding in South Korea, the UK, and India.
Last week, there was news in the air about the beta program delay for India. But now finally the Android 13 based One UI 5.0 beta is available in India (and in the UK) and it is called the second One UI 5.0 beta as it comes with more refinements than the beta already available in other regions. The incremental beta for the Galaxy S22 series is expected to be available soon in other regions as well.
The new beta comes with ZVHK as the end part of the firmware version. This is the firmware version of the update in the UK and India, and it may differ for other regions. It is a major software upgrade weighs around 2970MB in download size. And hence it is advised to use a WiFi connection to download the update.
Since this is the first One UI 5.0 beta in India, you can expect many improvements and changes along with many new features. Along with the new features available on the previous beta changes, the new beta comes with new stock app icons. You can see a glimpse of it below.
As mentioned earlier, the new One UI 5.0 beta for the S22 series is currently rolling out in South Korea, the UK, and India. And soon it will be available in more Asian countries and other regions as well. If you are a Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, or Galaxy S22 Ultra user and want to give One UI 5 a quick try, you can opt for the beta program in the Samsung Members app. You can follow this guide to join the One UI 5 beta program.
