Although Google has not officially finalized Android 13, it appears that further improvements will be released soon. There is some new proof that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will soon receive the Android 13 beta.
QUICKLY APPROACHING SAMSUNG ANDROID 13 BETA As the platform update nears its final release, Google just issued the third beta version for Android 13. This update brought a few adjustments and changes. As of today, Google should make Android 13 available to the general public in August or September, far ahead of last year’s timeline.
It appears Samsung is prepared to begin beta testing its own version of Android 13 as mentioned by the people at TizenHelp .
Samsung’s native South Korea saw the appearance of firmware version S906NKSU2ZVF6, which is thought to be the first Android 13 build for a Galaxy S22 series device. Although no one has yet received the update, development is advanced.
As is customary, Samsung’s current flagships, the Galaxy S22, S22, and S22 Ultra, will likely receive the upgrade first. The Galaxy S21 series and foldables are likely to be close behind.
What features will Samsung’s devices get with Android 13? At this moment, One UI 5.0 is still mostly a mystery, although there are some signs that it will enhance some animations and make other minor adjustments, though greater changes are still to come. Samsung implemented a variation of Material You in One UI 4.0 to add accent colors to its Android skin based on the user’s wallpaper.
According to earlier rumors, Samsung would release the Android 13 beta in July. This would be well ahead of schedule considering that Samsung published the Android 12 beta in September of last year.
This keeps Samsung’s quick track record going. With some of the longest support schedules and the quickest updates, Samsung has emerged as a model for how Android updates should be done.
By providing four years of security updates to its Galaxy devices in 2021, Samsung defeated Google’s Pixel, and in 2022, it increased this commitment. New Galaxy devices now receive major Android updates for four years and security patches for five years.
Right now, Samsung is indisputably the top brand for Android updates. Only Google’s Pixel 6 series comes close to matching that, and even then, it lags a little.
Samsung appears to be following Google’s lead rather than maintaining the status quo with Android 13, which has the potential to be one of the fastest updates in the platform’s recent history. Wonderful to see!
