One UI 6.1 update: Will your Galaxy phone get it?


New version One UI 6.1

The Galaxy S24 series was officially announced in mid-January with One UI 6.1 onboard, and Samsung will be spending the first half of 2024 working on and bringing One UI 6.1 to older Galaxy devices.

A lot of Galaxy phones were eligible for Android 14 and One UI 6.0 and pretty much all of them have received that major update, but what about the One UI 6.1 update? Which Samsung phones and tablets will get it and which devices won’t?

If your Galaxy phone is eligible for Android 14, expect to get One UI 6.1

As of February 13, Samsung hasn’t released One UI 6.1 for any device launched before the Galaxy S24 series, so it will be a while before we get an official list of eligible devices. But if history is any guide, almost every Galaxy phone or tablet that has Android 14 and One UI 6.0 will also be eligible for One UI 6.1.

Samsung may skip bringing One UI 6.1 to some budget devices, but in general, even if Android 14 is the last major OS upgrade for your device, expect to get One UI 6.1 as the final One UI update.

Below you can find a list of the phones and tablets that are likely to get One UI 6.1.

What’s new in One UI 6.1?

One UI 6.1 brings some interesting new features despite being a minor One UI update, such as the option to show the lock screen wallpaper on Always On Display, a combined Quick Share and Nearby Share menu for easier file sharing with Samsung and non-Samsung devices, and more advanced battery protection features.

But the highlights are all the Galaxy AI features, such as auto summarization of texts, websites, and voice recordings, Circle to Search for instant context-aware Google searches by long pressing the home button, advanced photo editing tools such as moving or deleting objects from photos, live translation in phone calls, powerful grammar and spelling checks in messages, writing style assist for chat messages, generative wallpapers, and more.
