Samsung OneUI software updates tweeted regarding the upcoming update. Samsung is testing OneUI 5.1 with the existing Galaxy S22 series smartphones. The tweet reveals that the new update bears the firmware version S90xEXXU2CVL7. With the launch of the Galaxy S23 series nearing, Samsung would launch the OneUI 5.1 with the S23 series smartphones.
The test firmware of OneUI 5.1 was spotted in Samsung servers first. Samsung may push the stable update to Galaxy S22 series users soon after the launch.
