Samsung’s One UI 5 beta program is in full swing – Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra units in China are receiving the fifth beta version, which may be the last before the stable release.
This firmware, version numbers ending in ZVJAIt fixes several major issues from its predecessor: random restarts, autofocus issues that caused poor image quality, the Galaxy Watch plug-in no longer forces to close, and more.

This beta also removed Bixby Text Call, a new feature in One UI 5 that turns voice calls into text chats (text to speech to show what the other party is saying and reply to them). It’s unclear if it will return in the stable release, but it was one of the new features in One UI 5.
According to some reports, the fifth beta version also improved animations, making them smoother. Again, this firmware has only been released in China, but it could be a matter of days before it gets a wider release (eg beta 4 has already arrived in Germany and India). The stable One UI 5 release for the Galaxy S22 series is expected later this month.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 in South Korea, the United Kingdom, and India have finally received their first One UI 5 beta. If bugs like those seen on the S22 series don’t scare you, you can sign up for beta testing using the Samsung Members app and get access to Samsung’s Android 13 release and new custom software.
The Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 have also joined the One UI 5 beta program (in Korea, UK and India).
The older Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip 3 got their first beta last week, and now the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is getting its second beta version in South Korea, the UK and China. Perhaps a Z Fold3 version will follow soon. The stable version of One UI 5 for the 2021 and 2022 flagships is expected to be released by the end of the year.
