Google Android 12 Beta 2 release brings Samsung One UI 4.0 another step closer to the Galaxy devices

At the I/O 2021, Google introduced the massive functionalities of the latest version of the Android operating system. The company officials even said that Android 12 has the biggest design changes in history, at the same time, it also includes a totally reimagined user interface.

Following its schedule, the US tech giant released the Android 12 Beta 2 for the eligible Pixel phones. Our folks over at TechCrunch reports that this update comes with some tweaks and changes to the Material You design system. Also, it brings a new privacy dashboard for a better understanding of permissions.

Well, the search engine giant is doing its work impressively without any delay like last year. But, what about Samsung consumers? When they will be eligible to taste the flavour of this major version upgrade? So, it’s true that the Android 12 Beta 2 release is good news for the Galaxy device owners.

According to Google, it will release the next Android 12 Beta in July, while the stable build is expected in August for general users.
