In early February, Google released the first Developer Preview build of Android 14 to eligible Pixel smartphones. However, Samsung’s One UI 6 Beta testing is likely to start by the end of July or early August, followed by a Stable release later this year.
Premium Galaxy devices launched after the Galaxy S21 series are eligible for four major OS upgrades. At the same time, select mid-range phones, starting with Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A73, are also eligible to get up to four generations of Android upgrades as well as five years of security patches.
