Which devices will benefit from the upgrade?


After launching on Pixel phones earlier this year, Android 13 is now heading to Samsung Galaxy devices outside of a beta program. Here’s which devices have already received their update, and which will likely get it in the next few months.

What’s new in Android 13 on Samsung devices?

Android 13 is a fairly small update compared to Android 12 which preceded it. Where this update completely reimagined the platform design on Pixel phones and introduced the “Material You” theme with special colors, this year’s update is much smaller overall.

On Samsung smartphones, Android 13 brings some system-level changes, including more colors for Samsung’s version of Material You, “Color Palette”. Theme icons on the home screen now also support third-party apps. There are also various privacy features on the lower tiers, but most of what’s new on Galaxy smartphones comes from Samsung.

One UI 5.0 is the latest version of Samsung’s Android 13 skin, and it brings a handful of new features. This includes “Privacy detection” when sharing photos, a new privacy and security dashboard similar to the one built by Google; a new lock screen with more customizable features; “Service Mode”, which hides user data when a smartphone is sent in for repair; stackable widgets; and more. The update was supposed to finally bring multi-user support, but Samsung removed it during the beta program.

Android 13 is already available on these Samsung devices

Since October 2022, Samsung has launched Android 13 for three smartphones. On October 24, One UI 5.0 with Android 13 started rolling out to all Galaxy S22 series devices globally, with some delays to carrier models and some regions.

When will my Samsung device get Android 13?

When will Galaxy devices get Android 13? If Samsung’s usual pattern holds, most modern, supported flagship devices will be updated within weeks, with budget devices and other regional exclusives getting the update throughout 2023.

Generally speaking, most Samsung smartphones are now guaranteed major Android updates for at least three years after their debut, which means there’s quite a long list of devices to update. You can check the update policy for your Samsung smartphone below.
