Samsung has been quick to release the latest Android versions to its flagship phones. According to latest reports, the South Korean electronics manufacturer is readying itself for the upcoming Android 13 launch.
The firm is set to commence open beta testing of Android 13 with One UI 5.0 in July 2022, according to a report by SamMobile. This should offer enough time for beta testers to ready the new firmware and test for bugs before it is finally released to the public. Moreover, as this is an open beta, customers with compatible devices will also be able to try out the update.
However, the July release for the open beta isn’t set in stone. The timeline could change, but as of now, reports indicate that Samsung is planning to start testing Android 13 and One UI 5.0 in three months or so.

To compare, the Android 12 beta program for Samsung devices was teased in July last year. However, the open beta made its way to devices only in September. Finally, the stable release of Android 12 commenced from November.
Many Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets are set to get the Android 13 and One UI 5.0 update. It is reported that Android 13 could first grace high-end phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy Z Fold 4, and Flip 4.
Back in February this year, Google had shared its first Android 13 developer preview, with its main focus on security and developer productivity. A stable build for Android 13 is expected to arrive by June or July, ahead of an official release which is scheduled for later this year.
