Samsung has begun the global rollout of One UI 6, coupled with Android 14 and the October 1 security patch, to its Galaxy S23 series. This firmware update is available for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23, and Galaxy S23+. The update package is approximately 3 GB in size and brings a host of enhancements and new features.
Among the notable changes is a revamped design, which includes a new default font, fresh icons, simplified icon labels, and the ability to customize the lockscreen clock size and position. The Quick Panel layout has also been reorganized, with dedicated positions for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth at the top and brightness controls relocated to the bottom.
One UI 6 introduces the Studio video player, accessible through the Gallery app, offering a project-based video editor with robust capabilities, albeit currently limited to FHD resolution. Additionally, users will find a new weather widget and an updated Samsung Health interface, which was originally introduced with Android 13.
The Airplane mode has become more intelligent, ensuring that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stay active when enabled. The Battery setting menu has been repositioned next to Display settings, streamlining access to essential features.
Galaxy S23 owners should keep an eye on their devices, as Samsung is set to expand the rollout to the entire S23 family, with further devices scheduled to receive the update in the coming weeks and months.
This update represents Samsung’s commitment to delivering a more refined and feature-rich user experience to its Galaxy S23 series, ensuring that users can enjoy the latest Android version along with the benefits of One UI 6, including improved usability, design enhancements, and added functionality.
