Samsung has rolled out the latest beta build of One UI 6.0, labeled as Beta 3, for the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Ultra smartphones. While this update doesn’t bring any new changes, there are some noteworthy enhancements, especially in the performance and user interface animations.
It is also important to note that One UI 6.0 beta 3 is based on Android 14. Some third-party apps won’t be supported by this build.
You can identify the software version for this One UI 6.0 Beta 3 update with their respective devices from below.
Size: 1288.27 MB
Security patch level: 1 September 2023
One of the standout features of One UI 6.0 Beta 3 is its significant improvements in device performance. Users have reported noticeable upgrades in benchmark scores. After updating to Beta 3, the single-core scores surged to 2008, and multicore scores reached 5370. In comparison, the previous Beta 2 build had single-core scores of 1951 and multicore scores of 5577. These improvements highlight Samsung’s commitment to optimizing device performance.
Furthermore, a CPU throttling test was conducted for 30 minutes using 100 threads. In Beta 3, the maximum CPU throttling observed was only 81%, signifying remarkable stability. In contrast, the previous Beta 2 build exhibited more significant throttling, with the CPU throttling up to 58%. This performance boost is a welcome improvement for users seeking smoother and more stable device performance.
User Interface Enhancements
The One UI 6.0 Beta 3 also brings noticeable changes in user interface animations and interactions. The animations throughout the UI, particularly when swiping down the quick settings tiles, have been made smoother. The transition is now seamless and visually pleasing. Additionally, the blur effect while sliding the notification panel has been enhanced, providing a more refined user experience.
One notable change is the layer two animation in the music player. Now, when you minimize the music player tab, close the music player, and then reopen it, the music player remembers your last choice and opens in the same minimized or expanded form you used previously. This feature offers greater flexibility and convenience to users who frequently use the music player.
Another mentionable change is the improved layout of the video player controls. While no major new features were discovered, there was a subtle change in the format of playback speed options, making it easier for users to understand and navigate.
Bug Fixes and Known Issues
One UI 6.0 Beta 3 also addresses several bug fixes, resolving issues like the home screen crash and camera app crashes that were reported in the previous Beta 2 build. While the changelog doesn’t specify these fixes, users have reported fewer issues with app crashes and system stability.
However, it’s important to note that Beta 3 is still in the beta phase, and Samsung has acknowledged some known issues. These will likely be addressed in future updates.
One new feature introduced in Beta 3 is the ability to schedule device restarts under the Device Care section. Users can now manually schedule device restarts instead of relying on automatic restarts triggered by performance issues.
Another notable addition is the charging indicator on the battery graph in the Battery section. This visual representation allows users to monitor charging times more effectively.

Galaxy Ring not supported with iPhones – Officially Confirmed
Recently, at the MWC 2024 event, which was held in Barcelona, Samsung’s VP, Hon Pak confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Ring will not be supported by iPhones. Pak also said that their products are as good as the Apple ones.
There are also very good reasons to switch to Samsung’s ecosystem. Samsung is also working on making their devices compatible with other Android devices as well, not only with their own.
As we already know, Galaxy Ring comes in various sizes. Among them, the smallest one is powered with a battery of 14 mAh, and the largest one comes with a bigger battery of 21.5 mAh which will provide a battery backup of 5-9 days.
Until now, the launch of Galaxy Ring has not been revealed but some rumors suggested that it will launch in the Unpacked Event, which is going to be held in July along with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6.
