Older foldable Galaxy and Note also received the Android 13 beta

On October 13, Samsung announced that the final version of the One UI 5 update based on Android 13 will soon arrive for Galaxy smartphones. In the first round, Samsung will issue the update to the S22 series, according to promises, this year’s flagship phones will receive the current system in October. Details of the update schedule have not yet been announced, but last year’s foldables (Z Flip3, Z Fold3) and the last Note series (Note20, Note20 Ultra) also received the One UI 5 in beta during the weekend, so it is expected that these too they will benefit from the new system in the first round.

In order for someone to participate in the beta program, they must register via Samsung Members on a compatible device and then provide certain information. After processing the information, the system sends out the OTA update and it can be installed as usual.

One of the new features of One UI 5 is the ability to copy text from photos. [+]

There are several new features in One UI 5, for example, the options provided by dynamic themes are expanded, widgets pinned to the main screen can be stacked, multitasking and split screen mode will be easier to use with new gestures, and the file manager has been improved. A feature is coming that introverts like me who shy away from phone calls will love: Bixby can now convert text to voice during calls, so you don’t have to actually make a phone call, but just type the answers. It’s a shame that this function will only work in Korean for the time being, and English support will only arrive in early 2023.

The “Text to call” function is currently only available in Korean. [+]

The setting of videos as wallpaper on the lock screen will be supported, the lock screen will be varied in several ways, similar to the focus modes of the iPhone, it will be possible to set different profiles on the phone, which will adapt to the situation, network, and time. In the gallery app, you can select text for copying on photos, and new items for connected devices and data security appear in the top menu bar. Related to the latter, the sharing menu of One UI 5 can warn the user if the system detects that sensitive information is included in the user’s photo intended for sharing.
