Have you finished your Christmas wish lists? Is an Android 14 update for your mid-range smartphone there even though you’re fully aware that’s a tough ask for the big old bearded guy at the North Pole?
Well, if your mid-range phone is Samsung’s Galaxy A54 5G released in 2023, you may be about to witness an early Christmas miracle. Indeed, the official rollout of One UI 6.0 based on the latest version of Google’s operating system is reportedly underway for this particular 6.4-inch device, at least on one US carrier and according to one incredibly lucky user.
That’s right, the stable update appears to have started in the US rather than… anywhere else in the world, which is obviously very unusual. But even though we’re treading into essentially uncharted territory here, it’s safe to assume that other markets will follow soon enough and all global Galaxy A54 owners will be able to get a taste of the latest software developed by Samsung in partnership with Google. well before Christmas.
The timing of this live delivery of a massive collection of new features, UI tweaks, security and performance improvements should come as no surprise to those familiar with the tentative update schedule rendered public by Samsung recently. .
But with so many high-end and ultra-high-end phones from other companies still stuck on Android 13, it’s hard not to see the A54’s OS promotion as a holiday blessing, and with the risks repeating to us, a true, real miracle of life.
Keep in mind that the world’s largest cell phone maker plans to pull off a few more such miracles in the days and weeks to come, although realistically we don’t expect Samsung to be capable of spreading the Android 14 I love Galaxy A34 5G, Z Fold 5, Z Flip 5, S23 FE, A13 5G, A33 5G, A53 5G, S21, S21 Plus, S21 Ultra, Z Flip 4, Z Fold 4, S21 FE, A52, A52s 5G, A13, A23 5G, Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3, A72, A25 5G, A04s and XCover 5 by the end of the year.
Some of these updates certainly seem likely and a few will almost surely begin in the coming month, but Samsung can’t pull them off. all in such a short period of time.
