One UI 6 arrives on unlocked Galaxy S22 models in the US

In addition to rolling out Android 14 and One UI 6 to more and more devices every few days, Samsung is busy making sure the update becomes more widely available to devices that have already received it in some markets.

Today, those who own an unlocked Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra in the USA can download the Android update on their phone. The update is rolling out for the three models over the air and comes with firmware version DWK5.

Along with the new features that are a part of Android 14 and One UI 6, like a redesigned quick panel, new camera options including a home screen widget, more advanced photo editing tools, improved accessibility, and more, the update brings the November 2023 security patch. The December patch has already been detailed by Samsung, but we’re still waiting for it to arrive on a Galaxy smartphone or tablet.

If you’re rocking an unlocked Galaxy S22, S22+, or S22 Ultra, you should be able to download the update by tapping the Download and install option in the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. Try that a few times if the update doesn’t show up on the first attempt. If that doesn’t work out, you can download Android 14 firmware for your S22 model from our archive and install it on the phone using a Windows PC.

Pixel 8 models arrive at FCC as Google sets a date for the launch event

What you need to know

  • Google Pixel 8 Pro and the Pixel 8 were spotted in an FCC listing.
  • The listings reveal connectivity options for both the Pixel handsets.
  • Both devices support WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and 5G connectivity.

The Google Pixel 8 series finally has a launch date set for October 4. On this day, the Pixel 8 Pro and the standard Pixel 8 are expected to arrive alongside a Pixel Watch 2. Ahead of the launch, the Pixel 8 devices have reportedly hit the FCC, giving us more of a glimpse at what to expect.

As noted by 9to5Google, the FCC has published a set of device paperwork filed by the search giant on Wednesday. These devices are believed to have GKWS6, G9BQD, GZPF0, GPJ41, and G1MNW model numbers. The GKWS6 model number was also spotted back in May at Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), revealing the Pixel 8’s wireless charging capabilities, which unfortunately is still limited to 12W.

Despite the multiple model numbers in the latest FCC filing, they are only the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models likely catered to various regions with different model numbers majorly comprising connectivity aspects. As 9to5 notes, the paperwork of GZPFO from the FCC filing doesn’t feature mmWave connectivity, while it is otherwise similar to the G9BQD and GKWS6.

On the other hand, the G1MNW, likely the Pixel 8 Pro, appears to have UWB (ultra-wideband), while the other four don’t bear it, likely indicating Pixel 8 models. The other identical parameters from the listing suggest that both models include support for Bluetooth, WiFi 6E, and sub-6 and mmWave 5G.
