  • Samsung accidentally confirmed the existence of One UI 5.1.
  • The revelation came with an update for the Galaxy Watch 5.
  • It is likely we’ll see this update land first with the Galaxy S23 series in February.

When Samsung launches a new entry in its Galaxy S line, it usually times that launch with the announcement of a point update to One UI. With the Galaxy S23 phones right around the corner, we figured we’d see a similar pattern this year.

Sure enough, it looks like Samsung plans to launch One UI 5.1 very soon (via 9to5Google). Interestingly, the revelation of this information comes from Samsung itself. The company recently pushed an update to the Galaxy Watch 5 that specifically mentions One UI 5.1 by name.
