The Android 13 developer preview is official and early adopters like Google Pixel smartphones can now test it out. However, Samsung has yet to offer a preview of Android 13. Nevertheless, reports indicate that the company is intensively developing the One UI 5.0 system. Of course, this system is in addition to the deep customization of Android 13. According to Sammobile, Samsung could open the beta version of One UI 5.0 in July and the official version at the end of 2022.
As usual, Samsung’s high-end models will be the first to try out the One UI 5.0 system. For example, Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Fold4, Galaxy Z Flip4 and other models will be the first models to adapt to One UI 5.0. As a next-gen operating system, Android 13’s biggest upgrade is that it’s optimized for large-screen devices like folding screens and tablets. Google has strengthened the interface design, allowing more apps to adapt seamlessly to Android devices of different sizes, improving the app experience.
According to reports, Google will announce the Android 13 operating system at the I/O developer conference in May 2022. The company will unveil the official version of this smartphone in the second half of the year.
Along with One UI 5.0, the company is also working on One UI 4.1.1 for its upcoming foldable phones. However, the latter will be exclusive to a few smartphones.
