We witnessed the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5's grand debut in late July, flashing One UI 5.1.1 right from the get-go. Thus, a transition to One UI 6.0 awaits, promising a headway to Android 14 from the pre-loaded Android 13. But before the official release, Samsung Z Flip 5 users get a sneak peek into the upcoming software.

In a surprising move, following the Galaxy Z Fold 5's path, Samsung has opened the beta testing program for Galaxy Z Flip 5 admirers in the US. The debuted One UI 6.0 beta sports the firmware tag F73U1EU1ZWJ2, tailored for the carrier-exclusive Z Flip 5 versions.

For eager users in the US, the beta OneUI unlocks via the Samsung Members app. A simple app entry, a tap on the One UI 6.0 Beta Program emblem, and voila – your phone's in. Post this, the beta software will be available for installation via the phone's Settings » Software update.

The latest Android 14-infused One UI 6.0, as seen in Samsung's latest flip model, pours an array of novelties. To mention some of them: it has revamped quick setting visuals, tweaked notifications, fresh widget additions, the elegant One UI Sans typeface, and spruced-up native apps.

The top-stiched Wi-Fi and Bluetooth quick panel buttons in One UI 6.0 remain static, sweeping away the one-handed use that makes OneUI exceptional and intuitive. The initial vision was to make big screens comfy for one hand by pulling interactive sections to the screen's bottom half. Hopefully, Samsung will finally lay these problems to rest with the official OneUI 6.
