Samsung is almost done with the Android 13 based One UI 5 update rollout. There are only a few Galaxy phones left for the update. And those devices will also get the update soon. The South Korean tech giant is already working on the One UI 5.1 update which will be a major update for Galaxy phones. And it will be available sooner than expected.
It was already known that the Galaxy S21 and newer models will get the One UI 5.1 update. But it looks like the Galaxy S20 will also be getting the One UI 5.1. This is good news for the Galaxy S20 series users as earlier the Galaxy S20 was not included in the list.
According to a report by Sammobile, One UI 5.1 testing is underway for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. The internal test build is available with build number G980FXXUFHWA1. The last to the fourth letter is H which indicates a major update. Currently, in the One UI 5 update the last fourth letter is G. Firmware version is rather informative as it reveals much information about the update.
One UI 5.1 update is going to be a big one, so that means it will include major changes. And as per available leaks, the lock screen customization will be getting additional options, camera improvements, and many other new features.
Here is the list of Galaxy phones expected to receive One UI 5.1 Update:
- Galaxy S22 Series
- Galaxy S21 Series
- Galaxy S20 Series
- Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Galaxy Z Flip 4
- All flagship and mid range phones from 2021 and 2022
- Some phones from 2019 and 2020
Note: We will be upadting the list soon once we have additional information. As of now, update for the phones mentioned above is already under internal testing.
Any Galaxy phone that hasn’t received its last major update yet will be eligible for the One UI 5.1 update. Most phones from 2021 and 2022 will also get the update. It may also be available for phones from 2020 that hasn’t received its last major update yet or if One UI 5 was its last major update.
The One UI 5.1 update will be available with the Samsung Galaxy S23 series launch. There is a possibility that the Galaxy S22 may get One UI 5.1 before the Galaxy S23 is available in the market. This is just speculation so take it with a pinch of salt.
The Galaxy S23 series is scheduled to launch on February 1, 2023. This means we won’t have to wait much longer to know what to expect in the One UI 5.1 update. Let us know your wish list for upcoming updates.
