Here’s how to download and install One UI 5

Software updates can be one of the most important things when it comes to a device. As Android 13 approaches its stable release, the time has come for the smartphone makers to give their custom skins a fresh coat of paint. Samsung, one of the leading OEMs, is also shaping the fifth iteration of its One UI software on top of the new version of Android. As is often the case, keeping up with the rollout of a major update like One UI 5 is a tough job, so we’re here to make it easier for you.

Samsung has yet to announce an official list of eligible Galaxy devices to get the Android 13 update, but current-generation flagships are expected to receive their stable OTAs before the end of the year. The Korean OEM has already launched the One UI 5.0 beta program for the Galaxy S22 series and the company is likely to put a handful of other devices into beta, including older flagships and even some mid-rangers, before the final stable release.
