Samsung Android 12 One UI 4.0

Back in February 2021, Google introduced the twelfth major generation of its mobile operating system – Android 12. However, Samsung will develop its own software system, One UI 4.0, which will be based on the Android 12 operating system.

Currently, the South Korean tech giant is focussing to complete the Android 11-based One UI 3.0/One UI 3.1 rollout for its remaining eligible devices. But the company has to boost its software system as it will have to begin providing the Android 12 update for its devices later this year.

However, Samsung has not yet announced its Android 12 update plan, but we will maintain a track by collecting every single leak and rumor for the next generation of One UI. You should bookmark this article, which will provide you the latest insights about the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update for your Galaxy device.

Here, we’ll talk everything about Android 12’s public beta, stable release date, features, and much more.

With the next version of One UI, Samsung will offer a modified user interface, improved user experience, countless new features, and enhancements for the current functions. At the same time, the One UI 4.0 update will also include all the bells and whistles of the Android 12.

Android 12 rolling out to all eligible Google Pixels with new design, Material You and more

Published

on

On October 19, Google officially released the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones at its Pixel Fall Launch event. During the launch event, the company officially launched the Android 12 system for current Pixel mobile devices.

Other than Material You, improved quick settings, and a series of new Android 12 features, the update also has an October 2021 Android security patch. If you’ve participated under the Android 12 public beta program, then check for the stable release.

To be mentioned, the official version of Android 12 can be installed on Pixel 3 and newer models, including Pixel 3A, Pixel 4, Pixel 4A, Pixel 4A 5G, Pixel 5 and Pixel 5A.  On the other hand, Android 12 will be available on Samsung Galaxy, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Tecno, Vivo, and Xiaomi devices later this year.

Advertisement

Amazingly, the Pixel 5 phones already running Android 12 Beta 5, and the final Android 12 OTA is only less than 5MB, and the October security patch date is the first Monday of this month. However, it’s an initial rollout, it will be available to every consumer in around two weeks.

No doubt, the brand new Material You design is the most eye-catching feature in Android 12 that lets you go a little deeper and adjust the appearance of the home screen to your liking. There are tools for you to coordinate colors, which can be extended to application icons, drop-down menus, gadgets, and so on.

Google calls Material You a “Pixel-first” feature, although it will soon enter “more device manufacturers and mobile phones.” In the near future, Pixel phones are likely to get more “Pixel priority” features in the Android 12 system.

Advertisement

In the past few years, Google has released some features that make being a Pixel user even more unique. However, some features are only available for newer Pixel phones, so this is even more reason to consider buying a new Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro phone.
