Samsung will reportedly release its first Android 13-based One UI 5.0 beta update for the Galaxy S22 series this week. The new OS will bring several new and improved features. Along with them, we will also see a set of new emojis, and luckily, you can now download and use those One UI 5.0 emojis on your Android device.
Every year, Samsung introduces a bunch of new emojis with the launch of its One UI. This year too, the company follows the same path with One UI 5.0 based on Android 13.
Thanks to XDA forums who managed to bring the brand new One UI 5.0 emojis. Not only Samsung but any Android device owner who has root access can download, install and start using these emojis before the official release, and you don’t need Android 13 for that.
According to information, Samsung One UI 5 which is based on Android 12, contains emoji designs of Unicode Emoji 13.1 set which was approved in September 2020.
Download Samsung One UI 5.0 emojis
You can use One UI 5.0 emojis by flashing a specially designed Magisk module on your rooted Android phone. This will change the device’s emoji font file to a “systemless” style, which will contain the new emojis that will appear in One UI 5.0.
- First, make sure your Android device is rooted with the latest version of Magisk.
- Download the Magisk module for the One UI 5 emoji pack from the author’s thread (linked below).
- If you’ve downloaded it on a PC or a Mac, then connect your Android device to it and copy the downloaded ZIP file to the internal memory of the target device.
- Open the Magisk app on your phone and switch to the Modules tab using the bottom navigation menu.
- Tap on the button named Install from storage.
- Browse and select the module ZIP you downloaded earlier.
- Magisk will now install the module and prompt you to restart it.
- After rebooting, open the Magisk app once again and take a look at the Modules tab. The One UI 5 emoji module you flashed should be listed under the Installed section.
- Open the keyboard and check out the new emojis.
It should be noted that many social media apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, Discord etc. have their own emoji styles, so these apps may not reflect the new emojis. The One UI 5.0 emoji style is only visible on UI parts that use OS-specific emoji fonts.
In any case, when you need to restore your old emojis, you can simply uninstall the Magix module followed by a reboot.
