- An unconfirmed report suggests that Samsung may launch the Android 13 public beta program much earlier than expected.
- The update is said to be compatible with One UI 5.0.
Google has not yet announced a public beta for Android 13. It is expected to land in the upcoming Virtual I / O meetup in May. However, we now have an idea of when Samsung phones will get the first taste of the new Android version.
According to SammobileAccording to this, Samsung may launch One UI 5.0 open beta program based on Android 13 in early July. It should give the company a good headstart to test the new firmware before a stable release at the end of the year.
Even in July when Android 13 is expected to hit the stability of the platform according to Google’s release schedule. If Samsung launches the One UI 5.0 beta program at the same time, it will certainly be a welcome step for users who expect it to fall.
For reference, the company began beta testing of the Android 12-based One UI 4 update in September last year. However, it was the first smartphone vendor to release a stable Android 12 build just 41 days after Google rolled it out for the Pixel.
Before you get too excited about Samsung’s predefined Android 13 release timeline, know that it is not set in stone. Sammobile Says that Samsung’s plans are temporary and may change for better or worse
If the company releases Android 13 Beta soon, then the Galaxy S22 series should be the first to be found in Samsung’s home market. The program should eventually expand to other Samsung devices and markets in the coming months.
