The Galaxy Z Fold 5 now has access to the One UI 6.0 beta program in select markets. Yesterday, we reported about the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 beta program in the USA and India, but more countries are now joining. The One UI 6.0 beta firmware is also available to potential testers in the UK.
As of yesterday, the UK update contains the firmware version ZWJ2. According to the screenshot shared by someone XDA Developers For the user, the update also includes the October 2023 security patch. It weighs around 2.7GB, which is definitely large, even for the new version of One UI.
Galaxy Z Fold 5 users in the UK should now be able to sign up for the One UI 6.0 beta program through the Samsung Members app. Before you do, you may want to learn more about Samsung’s beta programs and some of the risks associated with participating in beta testing.

One UI 6.0 may be released to the public this year
Samsung has not set a public release date for One UI for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 or otherwise. But the company officially announced One UI 6.0 at SDC23 earlier this week, and everyone expects the first public version to roll out before the end of the year. The Galaxy S23 series will likely be the first to receive the update, since it’s been tested for the longest, but the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 shouldn’t fall far behind the flagship tablet-type model.
One UI 6.0 brings too many changes to count them all here, but some of the most important changes include a redesigned Quick panel, a new system-wide font called One UI Sans, a better music player widget, an improved popup window, simplified home screen icon labels, and an emoji design. New for Samsung keyboard, a more useful content sharing screen, updates to the weather app and widgets, tons of improvements to the camera and gallery apps, and lots of other goodies.
