Samsung owners receive free phone upgrade this week with big camera boost and new emoji – check yours now | The Sun

SAMSUNG owners are due to receive a big phone update, fit with new emoji design and a major camera app upgrade.

The new perks form part of Android 14, which was unveiled by Google in early October when it was first rolled out to Pixel devices.

But the operating system will be issued out to Samsung Galaxy devices over the coming weeks under the title One UI 6.0.

The update has already hit Samsung's newest Galaxy phones first, including the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra.

But this week, the owners of nine more Samsung handsets will be graced with the sparkly new update.

Check the full list of devices receiving One UI 6.0 this week, and when you'll receive it:
