According to the sources from SamMobile, Samsung is planning to release the public build of Android 13 (One UI 5) in October. Users can download and install the public build on their Galaxy devices and experience the new version of the software. The Galaxy S22 series will be the first to get the update, followed by other Galaxy devices later.
Although there is no official announcement from Samsung, we can expect the One UI 5 Android 13 beta release very soon. For reference, the One UI 4 Android 12 update was released around the same time frame. The public release for the Galaxy S21 series was out in November. Other Galaxy devices will also receive the update by the year 2021.
Samsung has been doing a great job regarding software updates lately. The One UI 4.0 and One UI 4.1 updates are living examples.
