WASHINGTON: South Korean tech giant Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series started receiving Android 13 (One UI 5) beta builds in the US early last month and now those builds are coming to Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra.
According to GSM Arena, the update was spotted by Reddit user u/DJStormXZ over on the r/GalaxyS21 sub-Reddit.
As per the OP (original poster), the beta builds are only eligible for unlocked models purchased in the US, but another commenter claimed they were able to install the beta update on a T-Mobile device.
Korean Samsung Galaxy S21 owners were able to download the beta update late last month (India more recently) and the US’ beta build appears to be a slightly newer build, with the number G991UEU5ZVIA (for the S21).
