In this article, I will be revealing to you the Samsung Android 13 update list – simply put, the list of Samsung devices (phones and tablets) that will be betting the Android 13 update. You will also get to see the period in which this Android 13 update will be available for the set of Samsung devices.
Google, recently, released Android 13 – which is the latest update for devices running on Android. The update is already available on Google Pixel phones, and it will be coming to some of Samsung’s devices as One UI 5.
Samsung has already been teasing its own version of the Android 13 update, called UI 5.0, in a public beta. In addition to what Android 13 is bringing, Samsung is adding stackable widgets on the home screen, improved reminders, more options for color themes, optional call background for each contact, a customizable spacebar now on the Samsung keyboard, an update to Samsung DeX, and lots more.
Samsung Android 13 Update Date
When will Samsung release Android 13? I guess this in important question you are asking as well.
Samsung has not made it known to the public when it will be releasing the completed version of Android 13, beyond Google’s promise that it will start before the end of 2022. However, one can make a comparative guess based on the experience from past few years.
Google released Android 12 on October 4, 2021, and Samsung started rolling out the same update (One UI 4) to its devices in late November that same year. However, few bugs were discovered, so the update was paused until late December 2021. In 2020, Google released Android 11 in September, and Samsung started rolling out the update in late December, and early January.
Given that the Android 11 update took around four months before it started rolling n Samsung flagship devices, and roughly three months for Android 12, there is likely a possible rollout for the Android 13 in October or November 2022.

Samsung Android 13 Update List
Which of the Samsung’s phones and tablets will receive the Android 13 update?
Samsung is still yet to provide the complete list of phones and tablets that will receive the Android 13 update, but the company has promised a certain update period for most of its devices. For instance, the Galaxy S10 was released in 2019, and Samsung has promised three generations of updates to the phone. With this, the Galaxy S10 will likely remain on Android 12, since it has received Android 10, 11, and 12 already.
For now, below is the list of Samsung’s phones and tablets that should receive the Android 13 update, based on their original software promise of three generations update, and the Android version they started with.
- Galaxy S20 series (started on Android 10)
- Galaxy S21 series (started on Android 11)
- Galaxy S22 series (started on Android 12)
- Galaxy Note 20 series (started on Android 10)
- Galaxy Tab S8 series (started on Android 12)
- Galaxy Tab S7 series (started on Android 10)
- Galaxy Z Fold 2, Fold 3, and Fold 4 (started on Android 10+)
- Galaxy Z Flip, Flip 3, and Flip 4 (started on Android 10+)
- Galaxy A52 and A53 (started on Android 11 and 12, respectively)
- Galaxy A71, A72, and A73 (started on Android 10+)
The oldest Samsung phones you will find on this list are those that came with Android 10, and were promised three years of updates – phones like Galaxy S20 and original Z Flip. Certainly, the Galaxy S10 series will not get the Android 13, but Galaxy S10 Lite that arrived much later might, because it shipped with Android 10 out-of-the-box, and not Android 9 like other models. The same goes for the Note 10 series and Note 10 Lite.
So, this is all the information you need to know Samsung Android 13 update list and the possible date it will start rolling out to eligible Samsung devices.
