Samsung‘s One UI 6.1 update may soon hit the Galaxy S23 series. The company has confirmed that the new One UI version will be available for its 2023 flagship lineup, including the Galaxy S23 FE, by the end of March. The rollout will likely begin in South Korea before reaching other markets.

Galaxy S23 will get the One UI 6.1 update this month

The Galaxy S23 series currently runs on Android 14-based One UI 6.0. In fact, all Samsung smartphones that received an update to Android 14 are on One UI 6.0. The Galaxy S24 and newer models, which shipped with the latest Android version out of the box, arrive with Samsung’s One UI 6.1 custom Android skin.

While it may not seem like a major update, there are a few reasons to be excited about One UI 6.1. The biggest is Galaxy AI. Samsung introduced a slew of AI features with the new One UI version. The Galaxy S24 series offers built-in AI tools for photo and video editing, notes, calls, messages, wallpapers, and more. You also get AI-powered camera enhancements.

Additionally, One UI 6.1 brings some UI tweaks and smoother system animations. Other miscellaneous changes improve the overall Galaxy experience. Like before, the new One UI version will be available for most Galaxy smartphones and tablets updated to Android 14. Some AI features may not be compatible with certain models, particularly low-cost ones.

Shortly after the Galaxy S24 launch, Samsung said it plans to begin the rollout in March, with the Galaxy S23 series getting the update first. The company recently confirmed that there is no change in the plan. The 2023 flagships, including the FE model, will get the update this month. The confirmation came from South Korea, so the rollout should begin there.

If we are to guess, Korean Galaxy S23 users may receive One UI 6.1 as early as this week. Users in the US, Europe, and a few other regions may get the update next week. If the Korean release is delayed until next week, we may hit April before a global rollout is underway. As usual, you can check for updates from the Settings app on your Galaxy device.

Other Galaxy devices will also get this update

The Galaxy S23 series should be followed by the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in Samsung’s One UI 6.1 party. The likes of the Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy S21 series, 2022 and 2021 foldables, recent mid-range phones, and recent Galaxy tablets will also get the update. As said earlier, the availability of features will vary depending on the hardware capabilities of the device.
