Samsung has let Xiaomi overtake, but wants to deliver Android 14 soon.
Samsung is said to be targeting October domestically and things are looking good. Android 14 and One UI 6 are likely to start shipping this month. Initially, Samsung will offer the Galaxy S23 smartphone, but other devices (Z Flip/Fold 5, A54, etc.) are unlikely to follow much later.
What’s up today? After countless beta updates, the final firmware is about to be released. A new test version of the final stable update is now available on Samsung’s servers. It could be a few days before Samsung actually starts delivering.
But a final 8th beta for final exam purposes also seems possible. There are still a good 10 days left in October and a lot can still happen at Samsung. However, a specific date has not been mentioned for Android 14 with One UI 6, but manufacturers usually don’t do it in advance.
