Galaxy S22 series to get Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta soon
Samsung will expand the One UI 5.0 to other models, however, “other models” certainly reads as “other flagships”. As a result, we expect the beta to reach handsets like those in the Galaxy Z Fold series, Galaxy Z Flip, and the Galaxy S21 series. For now, not much is known about the One UI 5.0. However, SamMobile states that one of the company’s development goals is to accelerate the user interface within One UI 5.0. Samsung is reportedly working hard to improve the UI navigation speed on the next update. Moreover, the company is trying to optimize the animations to make them smoother and faster.
