Samsung One UI 4.0 Beta: Latest News, Eligible Devices, Release Date and more

Samsung One UI 4.0

No doubt, every smartphone user is eagerly waiting to get a taste of the latest Android 12 operating system. However, this version is not yet released in full, but Google already provided it to the Pixel smartphone users in February as Developer Preview, followed by public Beta 1 at the Google I/O event.

At the moment, various non-Pixel phones from different OEMs are now eligible to join the Android 12 Beta trial ahead of its stable launch, which is expected in late August or early September. Disappointingly, Samsung fans are not eligible to participate under the Android 12 Beta program.

As always, Samsung will introduce another iteration of its custom skin based on the current stable version of the Android operating system. The company will unveil the Android 11-based One UI 3.5 [Eligible Devices] along with the launch of its next flagship phones, which will happen in July or August.
