One UI 6.0 Update Tracker: Release Date, Top Features, List of Compatible Galaxy Smartphones and Tablets

Here are the top features of One UI 6.0 and a list of devices that will be updated to One UI 6.0.

  • Samsung will launch one UI 6.0 for its Galaxy smartphones.
  • One UI 6.0 is expected to bring many changes to the skin.
  • Here are the top expected features of One UI 6.0 and the devices compatible with One UI 6.

Samsung’s One UI skin powers Samsung’s entire smartphone lineup, from flagship Galaxies to budget ones. Every year, Samsung introduces a new version of One UI for its devices, and most devices get updated to the latest version of the skin. Last year, Samsung introduced One UI 5 and later introduced One UI 5.1. Now it is time for One UI 6.0. 

This article will discuss when Samsung will release One UI 6.0, its top features, and the expected list of compatible smartphones and tablets. Read on.

One UI 6.0 Release Date

There is no official word on when the One UI 6.0 will launch. Last year, the One UI 5 update started rolling out to devices in October. We can also expect a similar rollout date for One UI 6, with devices getting the stable update around September or October this year. One UI 6 beta rollout would be sooner than that, and we can expect One UI 6 beta for Galaxy devices to arrive as early as August. 

One UI 6.0 Design

With One UI 4, Samsung introduced a big makeover for the skin; it introduced Material You-based Design to One UI. One UI has stayed more or less the same since then. That’s because Android has remained the same with Material You design language. We didn’t see any significant overhaul with Android 14; we mostly won’t see anything new with One UI 6.0. It could follow the design principles of One UI 5 and One UI 5.1 but with slight changes. 

One UI 6.0 Expected Features

While Samsung is yet to officially reveal One UI 6.0 and the top features it offers, we can expect these features with the One UI 6.0 update:

Granular Access To Media

Introduced with Android 14 by Google, this feature might ship with One UI 6. If this feature comes to One UI 6.0, you can give apps access to specific photos or videos and not a folder or disc as a whole. 

Better Share Sheet

Android 14 introduced a better share sheet that allows developers to add custom actions to the share menu. We can expect the same in One UI 6.0 as well. 

Per App Language Preferences 

Android 14 introduced per-app language preferences setting. With this feature, different apps can be set to operate in different languages. Right now, language is a universal setting with this new feature. 

Camera Assistant for Galaxy A smartphones

In April, a mod for Samsung Community commented that the camera assistant available in the S series of devices would soon come to the Galaxy A series of devices.

New back arrow for gesture navigation

The new back arrow function is one major change introduced with Android 14 Beta 1. When gesture navigation is enabled, and you swipe back from the left or right Edge of the display, you’ll see a back arrow bubble. We can expect this feature to show up in One UI 6.0.
