According to the testing schedule, just like the Android 13’s testing phase, we tested developer previews in February and March. Google also started public beta testing in April and will see the platform’s stability in June. You can expect stable Android 14 OS to reach smartphones by August this year.
We will now talk about Android 14-based One UI 6.0 OS for Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Flagship Samsung devices ranging from the Galaxy S21 series to the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold5 and Flip5 foldable are eligible for the One UI 6.0 update, based on Android 14. In addition, there are a lot of Galaxy handsets launched with Android 12, which are also on the list!
Samsung One UI 6.0 Features
All the Security and Privacy related features and improvements of Android 14 will be included with the One UI 6.0 update. Samsung doesn’t rely on Google’s Android when it comes to the user interface as Galaxies offer the best and clean user experience with One UI.
We are too away from the One UI 6’s tentative development timeline, but, Samsung should now work on app icons, stock launcher, quick settings panel, and notification panel. Most users want a radically renovated user interface in One UI, as it’s continuing with refinements and refinements.

Samsung One UI 6.0 Eligible Devices
In the Galaxy Z series, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold4, Galaxy Z Flip4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are eligible for the new OS. In the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S23 series will get One UI 6 first, however, it will also be rolled out to the Galaxy S22 series and Galaxy S21 series (FE included).
Samsung offers two major Android upgrades to every Galaxy device (from Galaxy A, M, and F lineups). It means, if your device launched with Android 12 out of the box, it will surely get the Android 14 upgrade. Some A series devices are also eligible for three OS upgrades, hence, check the complete list below:
