Samsung was supposed to release the beta version of One UI 4.0 firmware based on Android 12 for its flagship Galaxy S21 smartphones on September 9, but this did not happen – for some reason its release was delayed. As it turned out, One UI 4.0 was postponed for a short time: the firmware is already available for users in the United States. Unlocked Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra users can install the software via the Samsung Members app, and One UI 4.0 beta has already been confirmed for Galaxy S21 versions of local carriers T-Mobile and Sprint Mobile.
Samsung has confirmed that the Android 12 beta is coming soon in the UK, China, India, Germany, Poland and South Korea. Interestingly, even though Samsung is not participating in Google’s Android 12 beta testing program, it has released a new version of the OS for its flagships almost on par with other companies participating in this program. Samsung will begin rolling out the stable version of Android 12 to its smartphones by the end of the year.
