Enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the flagship build and wondering which handsets will be lucky enough to receive the anticipated One UI 6.0 update. However, please note that not all Galaxy devices will be eligible for the upcoming One UI 6.0 upgrade. In this article, we’ll shed light on the popular Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets that may miss out on the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 experience.

Samsung has implemented a policy that offers four generations of OS upgrades and five years of security patches for its flagship devices launched in 2021 and later. As a result, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S22, and Galaxy S23 series phones are expected to receive the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update. Additionally, select mid-range phones such as the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A73 are also listed to receive One UI 6.0 this year.

Android 14 and One UI 6.0 Release Samsung One UI 6

Early February, Google released the first developer preview version of Android 14. As the company’s own smartphone lineup, the update first came to Pixel smartphones. Now, the company has already released the third developer preview version and preparing for next one. After the company is done releasing all the beta versions, the full package will come out. As usual, Google will release the final update for Pixel smartphones as AOSP (Android Open-Source Project). This will open the door for all other manufactures to get on board.

Samsung on the other hand will likely begin its own beta testing at the end of August. It will follow with a stable release of the One UI 6.0 later this year.
