Samsung Android 13 Update Timeline
While Samsung hasn’t revealed when it will be launching the Android 13 beta with One UI 5.0, SamMobile says that the program will go live in the third week of July. The report adds that the public release for the One UI 5.0 Android 13 update will happen in October. This means that beta testers will get nearly three months to test for bugs before it is finally released to the public.
According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will get the One UI 5.0 Android 13 update first. This could be followed by more Samsung devices joining the Android 13 party, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Note 20, and more.
