One UI 6 Release Date – When Will Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 Receive One UI 6?
Samsung is yet to reveal the official release date of One UI 6. Also, the official rollout schedule will also be known only after the official reveal of One UI 6.
One UI 6 is based on Android 14, and the launch of One UI 6 will happen only after the official unveiling of Android 14. Last year, Android 13 was launched in August 2022, and One UI 5 was launched the same month. But this year, Android 14 will be launching a month later. Google launched the Android 14 Beta 5 in the second week of August, and Google mentioned in the blog post announcing that Android 14 is only “weeks away,” which could mean that it could launch by August last week or September first week.
