Samsung is pushing its One UI 5.1 update to more low-cost smartphones. The company has released the new One UI version for the Galaxy F22, Galaxy F23 5G, and Galaxy M23 5G. It has already updated all eligible premium mid-range and flagship models.

The Galaxy F22 was launched in India and a few neighboring countries in July 2021 with Android 11 onboard. Samsung has already updated the phone to Android 12 and Android 13. It is now pushing the last major feature update to the device. The One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy F22 is rolling out with the firmware build number E225FXXU5DWB8. All users should receive this update within the next few days.

The story is the same for the Galaxy F23 5G as well. Launching last year as the successor to the Galaxy F22, this device also didn’t see a global release. It was kept confined to the Indian sub-continent by Samsung. Debuting with Android 12, the Galaxy F23 5G picked up Android 13 a few months back. It is now getting One UI 5.1 as well. The latest update comes with firmware version E236BXXU2CWC1 (via).

The Galaxy M23 5G, on the other hand, is available in more markets. Along with a wider release in Asia, Samsung also sold this phone in Europe, Latin America, and other regions. It arrived with Android 12 in March of last year and received Android 13 in December. One UI 5.1 is now rolling out to the Galaxy M23 5G with firmware version M236BXXU2CWC1. The rollout is currently limited to Europe and Latin America but should soon reach other markets.


None of these Galaxy smartphones are receiving the latest security patch, though. Samsung is only pushing the February SMR (Security Maintenance Release) to the phones. Since they don’t get monthly security releases, the next update may not arrive until May. In the meantime, if you’re using a Galaxy F22, Galaxy F23 5G, or Galaxy M23 5G, you can go to Settings > Software update and tap on Download and install to check for the One UI 5.1 update.

The Galaxy A52s 5G is also widely getting the One UI 5.1 update

Samsung’s latest push to bring One UI 5.1 to more Galaxy devices sees the Galaxy A52s 5G receive the update widely. The 2021 premium mid-range model started picking up the new One UI version in South Korea earlier this month. The update recently reached the phone in Europe with firmware version A528BXXU2EWC1. A global rollout should be just around the corner. The Galaxy A52s 5G debuted with Android 11 and will get Android 14.
