With significant fixes and security updates is the new beta version of One UI 6.0 promises to revolutionize the user experience for the Galaxy S23 series in several key countries.
As the tech world hears the latest news and advances from Samsung, the South Korean company hasn’t disappointed. After announcing to release the second beta of One UI 6.0 with Android 14 in China on September 4th, the company has already made the update available for Galaxy S23 devices in Germany, South Korea, the US and India.
This new update arrives shortly after the initial release and brings with it a bunch of bug fixes as promised. Issues originally reported by users and now resolved include infinite loading when launching the Netflix app, discrepancies on the home screen, general performance issues, repair mode not running, and multitasking improvements, especially when using the Protected Folder.
The scope of the update varies by country. Users in the UK and India will see a download of around 3GB, while users in Germany, South Korea and the US will see the update slightly smaller at 1.7GB as the latter have already downloaded the initial firmware.
In addition to bug fixes, Samsung has further strengthened its image as a security-conscious company. The update includes the Android security package from September 2023. However, specific details on the fixed security and privacy vulnerabilities have not yet been announced.
The update is expected to be rolled out to more devices in South Korea in the coming days, expanding the reach and scope of this beta test.
If you own a Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 Plus or Galaxy S23 Ultra and are located in one of the selected countries (Germany, South Korea, USA, India or UK), you can download and try the beta. The procedure is simple, just open the Samsung Members app, click on the One UI 6.0 Beta banner and follow the instructions. However, since it is a beta version, Samsung advises caution. It’s always a good idea to fully back up your personal data before installing an operating system update, especially if it’s still in its testing phase.
