Regarding timely software updates, Samsung presently holds the top spot for Android devices. Since their new software update policy, they have made enormous progress in this area. According to Sammy Fans, beta testing for One UI 6 could begin later this year, around the end of July or the beginning of August. After the launch of Android 13 last year, the Android 13-based One UI 5 update was made available for nearly all compatible devices quickly.
