We can expect Samsung to begin the beta testing by the end of July 2023 or early August 2023. 

The original post is as follows:

Based on past releases, Samsung has typically rolled out new versions of Android to its devices within a few months of the official release. For example, Android 13 was released two months after the official launch, and Samsung began rolling out the stable update to its devices in October 2022. If this pattern holds, we can expect Samsung to begin rolling out Android 14 to its devices in the next few months after the official release.

However, various leaks state that Samsung plans to bring Android 14 earlier than Android 13. Samsung has been super fast in rolling out updates with Android 13 and is expecting to become even faster with Android 14. With this pace, Samsung may launch Android 14 as early as September 2023.
