One of my favourite things about phones is new-OS joy: even the very best phones feel even better with a shiny new operating system on them. Now that Google has started publishing developer previews of Android 14, the next generation of its mobile OS, the process of moving phones to the best Android yet has begun – and while you won't get it until later this year, Samsung has helpfully made it clear which of the best Samsung phones it'll be offering the update to.

With Samsung phones, Android doesn't come directly from Google as it does with some of the other best Android phones. Instead, it comes packaged with the latest One UI version, which for Android 14 will be One UI 6.0.

Will your phone be eligible? The nice people at SamMobile have spotted the Samsung update list, and here's which phones will be getting Android 14 later this year.
