Samsung is on a roll today. Its software team certainly is. The firm has released the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 stable update for a bunch of Galaxy devices. Firstly, it updated the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 and went on to add the Galaxy S23 FE and Galaxy A54 5G to the party. The update is now available for the Galaxy Tab S9 series and Galaxy A73 5G too.

Android 14 is rolling out to the Galaxy Tab S9

Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S9 series alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in late July this year. Like the foldables, the new tablets came with Android 13 onboard. The Korean firm is now pushing Android 14 to the devices, with One UI 6.0 on top. The update is currently available in Europe, SamMobile confirms. It should soon reach other markets, including the US.


A screenshot shared by the publication shows that the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra 5G is receiving One UI 6.0 with the firmware build number X916BXXU1BWK6. The OTA (over-the-air) package weighs around 2.7GB. The update for the base Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Tab S9+, as well as the Wi-Fi versions of all three models, should have a similar-sized OTA file. The build number may vary according to the model and connectivity options.

The changelog for the update will remain the same for all three Galaxy Tab S9 models, though. Since we are talking about Android 14 and One UI 6.0, it’s a massive changelog. Samsung is pushing tons of new features, improvements, and UI overhauls to the tablets. From new camera features and editing tools to enhanced Quick Settings layout and revamped notifications panel, you’ll find changes everywhere.

The Galaxy A73 5G is also picking up this update

Samsung’s Android 14 update is also available for the Galaxy A73 5G. The confirmation comes from the Iranian publication Toranji, which shared a screenshot showing that the new Android version is rolling out to the premium mid-range handset with the build number A736BXXU5DWK2 and an OTA size of around 3GB.

This update will roll out to the Galaxy A73 5G and all other devices mentioned above globally within the next few days. Samsung has already updated the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22 series in most markets. The likes of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, and Galaxy S21 series should join the party soon. We will keep you posted as the update reaches more Galaxy devices.
