What is new in One UI 6 v1
TL;DR
  • Update: The timeline appears to be incorrect, as some of the mentioned dates have passed without the update rolling out to the mentioned devices.
  • Samsung has finally shared the rollout timeline for One UI 6 for its supported devices.
  • This timeline is shared for the EU region, and we can feasibly expect the update to roll out in other regions a week or two after this date.

Original article, November 13, 2023 (08:27 AM ET): One UI 6 is the hottest update right now. The update doesn’t change a whole lot, but it is still a breath of fresh air for Samsung smartphones as it makes meaningful changes to quite a few features. Samsung has finally released a timeline for compatible devices, and now we know when our favorite phones will get the new Android 14-based update.

The official community manager at Samsung Community forums has shared the release timeline for One UI 6 (via  Sammobile). This timeline is for the European market, but it gives a fair breakdown of how Samsung will roll out the update across its lineup.

The list above does not include Galaxy M and Galaxy F series as they are exclusive to India, and the list is for rollout in the European region. It also largely skips over most of Samsung’s tablets, even though they are recent enough to receive the update.

Note that the announcement is not publicly accessible through Samsung’s newsroom, but it is visible on the community forums. It also does not reflect a complete rollout but is indicative of the start date of the rollout in the European Union. Nonetheless, this is a credible lead on Samsung’s rollout timeline. You can expect the update to roll out in the US a week or two after a successful and bug-free EU rollout for that device.
