- Samsung is expected to release One UI 6 Beta 9 today or tomorrow.

Update: October 25, 2023 (5:29 AM ET): Samsung has now released One UI 6 Beta 9 update for the Galaxy S23 series in the US and several other regions. The update weighs around 430MB and brings software stability improvements as well as bug fixes. It also carries the October security patch. We’re hoping this is the last One UI 6 Beta update before Samsung pushes out the stable Android 14 update.

Yesterday, a Samsung moderator confirmed that this is likely the last week for the One UI 6 Beta program. Their comments suggested we could expect a stable One UI 6 release next week. However, with One UI 6 Beta 9 supposedly on the way, we might have to hang on a bit longer before Samsung finishes making the final touches to its Android 14 software.
