While Samsung is hard at work testing One UI 6.0 for the Galaxy S23 series with the help of beta participants in a few countries, behind closed doors, the company is also working on bringing the update to the Galaxy S22 lineup.
Evidence of the first One UI 6.0 firmware for the Galaxy S22 Ultra now exists on Samsung’s servers. The One UI 6.0 update carries firmware version S908BXXU6ZWHE.

The One UI 6.0 open beta for the Galaxy S22 is closing in
If you’re new to how things work behind the scenes, this One UI 6.0-based firmware version found on Samsung’s servers is not meant for public release. Once Samsung opens the One UI 6.0 beta program for the Galaxy S22 series, the update will likely have a different firmware version.
The takeaway here is the certainty that Samsung is working on bringing One UI 6.0 to the Galaxy S22 series as we speak. First through a beta program similar to the one for the Galaxy S23 and then through a public release for every Galaxy S22 user worldwide. Both events are likely to happen before the end of the year.
The One UI 6.0 update is a significant step in the right direction judging by the beta firmware for the Galaxy S23. The new version introduces a redesigned quick panel area, a new font, a variety of smaller changes across the UI, new widgets, beautified apps, and more.
Check out the video below for an in-depth look at One UI 6.0 beta running on the Galaxy S23. Most, if not all the features showcased in the video will be available for the Galaxy S22 series.
