Samsung plans to update most of its eligible Galaxy devices to Android 14 before the end of the year. And if it maintains the current pace for the next few weeks, it might end up updating them all within 2023. Over the past few days, the firm has released the new Android version along with One UI 6.0 for about a dozen models. A couple more are joining that group today. The Galaxy A34 and Galaxy M53 are the newest entrants.

Samsung’s Android 14 update reaches the Galaxy A34 and M53

As of this writing, Samsung’s Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update is available to Galaxy A34 users in the UK. The updated firmware build number for the phone is A346BXXU4BWK2. First reported by X/Twitter user @tarunvats33, the initial rollout only covers users who participated in the beta program. The company will soon push the update to users on Android 13/One UI 5.1. A global release should be just around the corner too.


For beta users, the OTA (over the air) package weighs just 282MB. However, those updating from Android 13 will receive a much bigger file, possibly weighing more than 2GB. One UI 6.0 brings new camera features, UI revamp, smoother system animations, functional improvements, and more to your Galaxy A34. The November security patch, which fixes more than 60 vulnerabilities, is also part of this release.

The new features and security enhancements are also rolling out to the Galaxy M53. It is currently picking up the Android 14 and One UI 6.0 update in Russia with the build number M536BXXU4DWK2 (via SamMobile). Users in other parts of Europe and the rest of the world will receive it in the coming days. The M-series phone wasn’t sold as widely as the A-series model. It didn’t come to the US.

If you’re using the Galaxy M53 or Galaxy A34, you can check for updates from the Settings app. Samsung has also released Android 14 for the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy A54, Galaxy Tab S9 series, and Galaxy A73. We will let you know as soon as it pushes the new Android version to more models.

The Galaxy A54 is getting the update in more markets

Alongside pushing Android 14 to more devices, Samsung is expanding the availability of the big update to more markets. The Galaxy A54, which received One UI 6.0 in the US yesterday, is now picking it up in Europe. The new build number there is A546BXXU5BWK4 (A546USQU5BWK4 in the US). The November security patch is part of the package in both regions. Users in the remaining markets can expect to receive the update soon.
