Heres when your Samsung phone will get Android 12 (One UI 4) – Android Central

One Ui 4 Android 12 Mockup With FlipSource: Nick Sutrich / Android Central

Samsung has started to roll out the One UI 4 update based on Android 12. The beta build is now available for the Galaxy S21 series in the U.S., Korea, India, UK, Germany, Poland, and China, and gives us an early look at all the new features coming to Samsung’s phones later this year.

One UI 4 doesn’t change too many things from a design point of view, with Samsung instead focusing on integrating all the new features that Google introduced in Android 12. That said, there are exciting changes around home and lock screen customization, notification management, privacy and security, and much more.

If history is any indication, Samsung will start rolling out the stable build of One UI 4 by the end of 2021. But with the manufacturer kicking off the beta earlier than last year, it is entirely possible the stable One UI 4 update could be available before December. As always, the Galaxy S flagships will receive the update first, with the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra scheduled to make the switch to the Android 12-based One UI 4 before the end of the year.

Full list of Samsung Galaxy phones eligible for the One UI 4 (Android 12) update

With Samsung promising three Android updates to its flagships starting with the Galaxy S10 series, there are a lot of devices scheduled to switch over to One UI 4. Samsung makes the best Android phones, and while the Galaxy S21 series has a lot to offer, a bulk of Samsung’s sales come from the mid-range Galaxy A series.

Samsung offers the same three Android update guarantee to Galaxy A phones as well, and that means older mid-range phones will receive the Android 12-based One UI 4 update. While Samsung hasn’t shared the update timeline for One UI 4 just yet, these are all the Galaxy phones that are eligible for One UI 4:

When will my Samsung Galaxy phone get the One UI 4 (Android 12) update?

The One UI 4 stable update will make its way to the Galaxy S21 series first, and then filter down the list. It’s likely that the Galaxy Note 20 series will be next in line, followed by the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Samsung did a remarkable job updating the mid-range Galaxy A series to One UI 3.0 at the start of the year, and it is likely that the Galaxy A52, A42, and other models in the 2021 Galaxy A series will make the switch to One UI 4 in the first quarter of 2022.

As for older flagships and Galaxy A devices from 2020 and 2019, Samsung is likely to deliver the One UI 4 update in Q2 2022. We don’t have the full timeline for Samsung’s rollout plans at this moment, but with over 60 phones slated to make the switch to the Android 12-based One UI 4, it’s going to take a few months before all devices receive the update.

That said, Samsung has done a great job with the Android 11-based One UI 3.0/3.1 rollout, and it is likely to do the same this year with One UI 4. Of course, if you want to be first in line to receive the update, you can always switch to the Galaxy S21.
