Samsung has started rolling out One UI 6.1 to its flagship 2021 and 2022 Galaxy smartphones in South Korea. The Android 14-based custom skin brings several improvements along with a range of AI features to the Galaxy S22 family, Galaxy S21 series and previous Galaxy foldable phones. However, older smartphones may not get the full Galaxy AI suite. The One UI 6.1 update was announced in January with the launch of the Galaxy S24 series. The update was available for the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in March.

According to multiple posts on Samsung community forums (first noticed by SamMobile), Samsung is rolling out the One UI 6.1 update for the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.

The update is currently rolling out to eligible devices in South Korea, though other regions are expected to receive it soon.

With the latest update, Samsung’s 2021 and 2022 S-series and Z-series flagship phones gain access to Galaxy AI features. The changelog shared by users shows that older models like the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 may only get the Circle to Search feature as part of the One UI 6.1 update. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 also appears to be getting AI-generated wallpapers and AI-powered generative editing.

Users in South Korea can manually check for an update by heading to Settings > Software Update > Download and Install. It is recommended to update smartphones while connected to a strong Wi-Fi network as it is massive update with a size of about 3GB.

The Galaxy S24 family arrived in January with One UI 6.1 pre-installed. The smartphone giant started rolling out the update for the Galaxy S23 family, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and more in late March. It is expected to bring the update to a few more older devices like the Galaxy Tab S8 series soon.
