How to update your Samsung Galaxy to One UI 6 if you don’t get the download notice

If you do not receive the update from the settings, this way you will be able to have your Samsung Galaxy updated to Android 14.


Android 14 has just arrived in Spain through One UI 6 on Samsung Galaxy phones. The first to receive this new firmware are the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S3 Ultra . The free Galaxy phones already have the update from the settings, but those who have these phones through the operators seem to have to wait a few days. There is a way to update the mobile phone to force its installation.

Precisely One UI 6 is available today in its final version in Spain, France, Belgium, Finland, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Romania . The update, if one comes from the last beta, weighs 350 Mb, but for those who update from One UI 5.1 it has a weight of 3 GB.

Among all the new features included in One UI 6 with Android 14, the improvements in the camera app clearly  stand out (shortcuts to 12, 50 or 200 Mpx), selection of objects or people in photos to convert them into stickers or improvements in the apps to edit photos or video.


Samsung has published this update so that some users can now install it, but there are many others who have to wait for the operators to give the go-ahead so that it can be downloaded from the settings. The best of all is that through Samsung’s Smart Switch the update is already present.


In EL ESPAÑOL – El Androide Libre the update has been downloaded with Orange as the operator , so it is an option that can be applied to other operators as well as for the rest of the Galaxy S23 series. This is how you can easily download and install the update in a matter of minutes.
