Stable One UI 5 update to drop on Monday for European S22 models
Galaxy users out there might remember Samsung’s promise to bring One UI 5 and Android 13 to the S22 line in October. The Korean giant seems to be keeping the said promise and there are already reports of S22 Ultra devices in Italy receiving the coveted OTA.
The package in question has a S908BXXU2BVJA firmware version, weighs 2854.03 MB and includes the latest security patches from October 2022. However, that’s just icing on the cake, as the changelog for this particular update, as you can imagine, is extremely long. You can check it in more detail in the screenshots or on the source link. The key features are:
- New icons
- New call popup and new notification layout
- New controls for device customization (lock screen, wallpapers, new layout for widgets)
- Productivity optimization (improved multitasking, a new option to extract and scan a text, optimized Samsung Dex and Samsung Notes, connected devices)
- Optimized routine mode
- New sleep mode
- Privacy and security optimization
Now for the even better news – we expect the stable One UI 5 and Android 13 update for the S22 family of devices to start rolling out in Europe on Monday, October 24. It’s only a few hours away and would be in line with Samsung’s original promise. Speaking of which, industry sources claim that Samsung will also release One UI 5.0 for the Z Fold4, Z Flip4 and the Galaxy S21 family before the end of 2022. Along with the Galaxy Z Fold3, Galaxy Z Flip3, Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4. Probably the Galaxy A53 as well.
