Looking into buying the S22 ultra but just had one question I'd like to clear up before I do:
I read that the S22 would be getting a beta release based on Android 13/OneUI5 in July with a target final release towards the end of the year. Given that Android 13 will finally be supporting LE Audio (LC3 codec) and the S22 range has BT5.2, does this mean that the Samsungs will automatically support this?

I know that in the past Samsung have been very lacklustre in their audio support (especially AptX) in hopes that their proprietary SSC would take hold. Even for LDAC you had to jump through developer options to get it activated, so just wondering if Android 13 incorporating this will automatically provide the LE Audio functionality for the S22 range or whether Samsung will play funny games and leave it out in some kind of way with OneUI5?

Anyone here involved in the Beta test by any chance who could chime back on this??

Android 13 beta for S22 Ultra is already out, so you can try to ask in the thread dedicated to this beta. I know that on S22 Ultra with Android 12 LDAC works out of the box without any need to mess with developer settings, I use it nearly every day.
