Samsung has opened the One UI 6.0 beta program for one more mid-range handset. The company is now pushing the beta update to the Galaxy A34. It rolled out One UI 6.0 beta to the Galaxy A54 last week. The Galaxy S23 series is the only other Galaxy device to get the new One UI version, leaving Galaxy S22 users frustrated.
One UI 6.0 beta for the Galaxy A34 appears to be currently limited to the UK. The mid-range phone is reportedly getting the update with the firmware build number A346BXXU4ZWI1. The over the air (OTA) package weighs about 2GB, which is in the expected lines considering that it’s a major Android OS update. One UI 6.0 brings Android 14 Galaxy devices.
It’s unclear if Samsung plans to expand this beta program to more countries. The Korean firm is testing One UI 6.0 for the Galaxy S23 series in China, Germany, India, Poland, South Korea, and the US as well. Mid-range models may not get the beta update in all of these markets, but the company could add a few to the mix. This applies to both Galaxy A34 and Galaxy A54.
If you’re using either of these phones, you can check for a banner about the One UI 6.0 beta on the Samsung Members app. The banner will show up on the app’s home page in supported countries. You can click on the banner to enroll in the beta program. Once you have completed the registration process, the beta update will roll out to you like a regular OTA update.
Samsung will push One UI 6.0 beta to the Galaxy S22 series as well
When Samsung opened the One UI 6.0 beta program for the Galaxy A54 last week, many Galaxy S22 users expressed their disappointment over the company prioritizing mid-range devices over flagships. The Galaxy A34 now getting the beta update ahead of the Galaxy S22 has certainly irked a few more of them. The Korean firm’s idea is likely to go in the order of release date, but it’s natural for flagship users to expect more.
Hopefully, Samsung won’t take much longer to bring One UI 6.0 beta to the Galaxy S22 series. The enrollment process will be the same for the 2022 flagships as well, so don’t forget to check the Samsung Members app. As far as the stable update is concerned, we are expecting Samsung to begin the rollout in late October or early November. The Galaxy S23 series will get it first, followed by other flagship models.
