Samsung’s working on stable One UI 6.0 firmware for Galaxy Z Fold 3

Last month, the Samsung Community moderator in charge of Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold software said the firmware development team aims to start distributing beta firmware for the Z Fold/Flip 3 and Z Fold/Flip 4 in October. Although the third-generation foldable phones have yet to show signs of joining the One UI 6.0 beta program, we have now found evidence that Samsung is developing the stable One UI 6.0 update for at least one of these devices.

We came across new firmware on Samsung’s servers, affirming that the company is testing One UI 6.0 for the Galaxy Z Fold 3. This unreleased update carries firmware version F926BXXU5GWJ3, and this string of letters and numbers pretty much confirms this isn’t a beta update but one that, in theory, is aimed at the stable channel.

Whether the GWJ3 update will be the first public One UI 6.0 build for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is debatable, but the takeaway is that Samsung is already working on a stable One UI 6.0 release for the Fold 3. And that’s despite the fact that we have yet to see evidence of a beta build in develoment.

Google releases Android 14 Beta 5.3 as the stable version of Android 14 is further delayed

Will this be the final Beta update? Will the next Android 14 update be the eagerly awaited stable version of Android 14? We are already delayed as most expected the final update to be released in August. But certainly, this has to be-just has to be-the last Android 14 Beta update.
