Until now Samsung only promised to begin the roll out by the end of March. However, a new report now says that roll out will begin on March 28 in China.

As spotted by Twitter user Tarun Vats, Samsung notified some Galaxy S23 users in China of the impending update via a push notification on Saturday (via SamMobile). Potentially, that suggests users in Europe and North America might be in line for the update too.

One UI 6.1 is a pretty big deal, as it brings some of the best Galaxy S24 software features to owners of the previous generation’s devices.

Those include the Galaxy AI features like Chat Assist, which can translate messages into 13 different languages. There’s also the opportunity to receive compose recommendations based upon the tone of the message you wish to convey.

There’s also a Live Translate feature, which will translate voice calls in real time, while the Google Circle to Search tool is a useful way to leverage Google without typing in commands. We’ll let you know when the update drops.
