Samsung will upgrade these Galaxy smartphones to Android 13.0

Android 13 is finally making its way to Samsung Galaxy handsets outside of a test program after debuting on Pixel phones earlier this year. Here are the devices that have already received their update and those that will likely do so in the near future.

What has changed in Android 13 on Samsung hardware?

Comparatively speaking to Android 12, which it replaces, Android 13 is a somewhat minor release. This year's upgrade is far smaller overall than last year's release, which entirely redesigned the platform's interface for Pixel phones and included "Material You" theming with unique colors.

Android 13 introduces a few system-level modifications to Samsung handsets, including extra colors for Samsung's version of Material You, "Color Palette." Third-party apps are now supported with themed icons on the homescreen. On the lowest tiers, there are also numerous privacy features, but the majority of what's new on Galaxy devices comes from Samsung.

One UI 5.0 is the most recent version of Samsung's skin on top of Android 13, and it includes several new features. This includes "Privacy Detection" when sharing images, a new Privacy and Security dashboard similar to the one Google created, a redesigned lockscreen with more configurable options, "Maintenance Mode," which hides user data when a smartphone is brought in for repair, stacking widgets, and other features. Multi-user functionality was meant to be included in the upgrade, however, Samsung withdrew it during the testing program.


On these Samsung smartphones, Android 13 is already available


Samsung has released Android 13 for three devices as of October 2022. On October 24, One UI 5.0 with Android 13 began rolling out to all Galaxy S22 series handsets internationally, with some carrier models and areas experiencing delays.

When will Android 13 arrive on my Samsung device?

When does Android 13 arrive on Galaxy devices? The majority of current and supported flagship smartphones will receive updates in a matter of weeks, according to Samsung's customary pattern, while affordable handsets and other regionally specific models will do so during 2023.

Since the majority of Samsung smartphones are now generally guaranteed to receive significant Android upgrades for at least three years after their release, there is a sizable list of devices that will receive updates. The updated policy for your Samsung smartphone is listed below.

Samsung has verified a preliminary list of devices and a schedule for when it will roll out Android 13 in a message issued to subscribers in Korea via its Samsung Members app. This schedule is a decent generalization of what to anticipate, however it may vary slightly based on your location and Samsung's own pace.
