Samsung's firmware polices are so clear that based on them, it is pretty easy to deliver a list of devices that are eligible for the update to One UI 5 based on the new Android 13 software. Taking that in consideration, here is a list of Samsung smartphones that are eligible to receive the new Android 13 as soon as it will be available to the public.

As you might know at this point, the South Korean company guarantees at least three years of major Android updates for its flagship smartphones, and up to four years of security updates for its new devices. Besides that, Samsung also offers five years of security patches for flagships and mid-range phones that are part of the "Enterprise Edition" series, mainly targeting the corporate market.

Last year, Google released Android 12 in October, and we expect that the new version will be launched between September and October 2022. According to Samsung's update history, the first devices that will get the new One UI 5 features will be the Galaxy S22 series and the most recent foldable devices. We expect to see this happening in December 2022.

Here we list all Samsung phones that should receive the update to Android 13/One UI 5 based on three main sources: Samsung's firmware polices, history of updates and announcements made on the manufacturer's official pages. Below you will find the models divided by series.

One UI 5 beta test

According to the latest rumors, the beta for Samsung's One UI 5.0 is tipped for a July launch. The Samsung experts at SamMobile have exclusively learned that the One UI 5.0 beta will be released in the third week of July and named the Galaxy S22 series as the first models to receive the beta. Thus, the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra will already enjoy the new software interface in July.

The flagship Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldables are also expected to receive the Android 13-based One UI beta shortly after that. If the tests run as expected, the final version could be ready for the first Galaxy devices as early as October. After Samsung took off with Android 11 in December and Android 12 in November, the company could push the release forward by another month.

Bear in mind that this list will be constantly updated with new devices and information concerning the operating system update schedule for Samsung smartphones. If your Galaxy smartphone is not on the list of devices eligible for update, don't worry, because this is not yet the official selection from Samsung – which should be published some time between late November and early December.
