Two months ago, Samsung first released the One UI 5.0 beta update for the Galaxy S22. Since then, the South Korean company has released three more beta updates with feature additions and bug fixes. Yesterday we reported that Samsung could release the fifth and final version of the One UI 5.0 beta update for the Galaxy S22 series, which is exactly what the company has done.
The fifth One UI 5.0 beta update has been released for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra in China. The new update has a firmware version that ends in ZVJA and has a download size of 471.16 MB (for Galaxy S22 Ultra).
Galaxy S22 One UI 5.0 beta update removes Bixby Text Call, fixes multiple bugs
Samsung’s official changelog claims that the company fixed several bugs, including those that caused the Galaxy Watch plugin to close, causing camera autofocus malfunctions and poor image quality, and restarting the phone.
The new software also fixes an issue that prevented users from adding fingerprints. Some people also complained about the phone’s missing unlock sound and Samsung has solved that problem with the latest update. Other issues included the voice being loud even after the ringer volume was lowered, the background was incomplete, the Close All option was missing from the multitasking menu, and the app was forcibly closed when editing images. Those problems have been resolved.
Samsung said it has removed the Bixby Text Call feature from the new One UI 5.0 beta update. The Bixby Text Call feature, announced last week, uses AI to convert speech (on the call) to text and display it on the screen. Users can then type the text in response to the caller, and Bixby converts that text to audio and sends it to the person on the other end of the call. In this way, a user does not need to talk or listen to participate in a voice call.
Reports also claim that the new beta version of One UI 5.0 brings smoother animations. Apparently the frame drops have been reduced and the animations are similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with One UI 4.1.1.
One UI 5.0 Beta 5 could be the last beta update before the stable release of One UI 5.0
This could be the final beta version of One UI 5.0, and it could be released in other markets in the coming days, including Germany, India, UK and US. Samsung said it will release the stable version of Android 13-based One UI 5.0 for the Galaxy S22 series before the end of this month.
