One UI 5.0
Samsung is currently running the One UI 5.0 Beta program for Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 smartphones. So far, we have witnessed three beta builds that show off a slew of new features including 16 color palette options, easier multitasking, a camera watermark, Lockdown mode, and much more.
Meanwhile, the stable One UI 5.0 will unveil at SDC22 on October 12. It’s obvious that Galaxy S22 will grab it first and then it will expand to other flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S10 Lite could be able to install this version at the end of this year.
It’s worth mentioning that the top-end models of the Galaxy S10 series (launched with Android 9 OS) are not compatible with Android 13 or One UI 5.0 upgrade as they has finished their software update cycle. Whereas the Galaxy S10 Lite came pre-installed with Android 10 OS, therefore, its last major upgrade will be Android 13.
