Samsung brags about the speed of Android 13, wants even faster

Android 13 has been rolling out to devices quite quickly and Samsung has been hard at work on the rollout over the past few weeks. In a press release this week, Samsung brags about the rapid rollout and teases that it wants next year’s cycle to go even faster.

In a press release from South Korea, Samsung announces “extended” availability of the One UI 5.0 update with Android 13 for more devices. The company made this announcement when the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 saw the update in Samsung’s home country, also mentioning the update that landed on the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 in the previous week.

Samsung says it expects the Galaxy Tab S7, Tab S6 Lite, as well as last year’s Galaxy A52s 5G and Galaxy A32 to be updated “by the end of the year”.

In the post, Samsung brags a bit about the speed of its Android 13 update, noting that this year’s update has “drastically shortened the time gap” between the release of Android 13 and the “deployment” of One UI 5. It only took about two months for Samsung to start pushing Android 13 to customers

Two months doesn’t sound that fast when you compare the speed of Android updates to iOS, but it’s a huge improvement. Samsung used to take several months to bring a new Android update to one of its devices, and even longer for the dozens of models we’ve updated to Android 13 to date.

But apparently the company wants to keep beating that target. Samsung is teasing that it will “reinforce its partnership with Google” and use user feedback to accelerate the rollout of the next Android version, which will be Android 14, presumably with “One UI 6” at the top.

Samsung Electronics will continue to strengthen cooperation with Google and actively listen to user feedback to keep updating One UI faster and with higher perfection.
