A couple of weeks after beginning the One UI 4 Beta program for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, Samsung released the stable Android 12 update for these devices. However, the company did everything in the rush that eventually proved its decision wrong as the stable rollout is suspended for all Galaxy phones.
While Samsung had already halted the stable Android 12 update rollout for the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, a community moderator confirmed that a new One UI 4.0 software is under preparation, which includes a patch from Google as well.
According to the information disclosed by the community moderator, Samsung had found compatibility issues with the Google Play system on some Galaxy S21, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 devices, therefore, the One UI 4.0 update has been halted until the issues get fixed.
What’s inside the statement:
After the One UI 4 update, a problem was found due to compatibility issues with the Google Play system on some devices, so the One UI 4 update has been put on hold for a while.
We are currently taking action after analyzing the content with Google.
We plan to redistribute the One UI 4 update after securing the stability of the device and completely solving consumer inconvenience and errors.
We are currently preparing a revised version of the software, including a Google patch that improves compatibility issues, and testing is in progress.
We will do our best so that stable software can be distributed by completing it as quickly as possible.
Adding to this, the official confirmed that Samsung One UI staff is rapidly working and analyzing the content with Google as part of fixing the issues. In addition, it’s scheduled that the distribution of the new One UI 4.0 update will begin after securing the stability of the device.
Last but not least, the Korean tech giant is working on the development of a revised One UI 4.0 software, based on Android 12 OS, which also includes a Google patch. This patch from Google reportedly improves compatibility issues on Galaxy devices, however, the testing is under development.
- We can expect, the new One UI 4.0 Official version will be rolled out alongside the January 2022 security patch.
One UI 4 Features:
- Samsung’s Android 12 update comes with tons of new features such as a redesigned user interface with revamped icons and Material You theming system.
- In addition, the One UI 4.0 enhances all of the stock apps, adds more lock screen widgets, quick settings toggles to turn off the camera and mic access and more.
Samsung brings high-definition image standard tech HDR10+ for IPTV and gaming
Samsung has partnered with KT, NVIDIA, and Amazon to expand the high-definition image standard tech HDR10+ to Internet Protocol television (IPTV) and gaming in order to provide the best display viewing in others fields as well.
Led by Samsung, HDR10+ is a technology that offers enhanced colors, contrast, and brightness for each scene on TV or mobile devices to enhance the three-dimensional effect of images. It produces a better dynamic range and shows up to a billion colors compared to regular videos.
At CES this year, Samsung officially announced the HDR10+ gaming-specific standard and applied it to TVs and monitors introduced this year. Now KT plans to bring HDR10+ to its new set-top box sometime in the first quarter of next year.
Additionally, the third-generation Apple TV 4K, which is a powerful entertainment device that boasts excellent cinema-level visual beauty and fast performance, and the Apple TV app built into Samsung TVs will also support HDR10+ video.
Other than these, Amazon Fire TV also adopted this high-definition image standard in September, whereas, NVIDIA announced support for the HDR10+ gaming standard on GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX 16 series graphics cards and laptops on November 16.
Samsung launched a company named ‘HDR10+ Technology LLC’ in 2018 to expand the HDR10+ ecosystem and provide free support for the technology for HDR10+ certification, logo program operation, and content production.
Resultantly, there are now more than 6,000 certified products launched by 142 member companies worldwide. Now more Samsung and other devices including IPTV and gaming are set to get HDR10+ support.
Yong Seok-woo, vice president of Samsung Electronics said –
“HDR10+, a high-definition video standard technology developed by Samsung Electronics, is consistently selected by the best IPTV service providers and game companies at home and abroad. It will contribute to the development of the content industry.”
Breaking: Samsung outs China’s BOE from suppliers list
Samsung removed China’s BOE from the official list of this year’s suppliers/partners. BOE was one of the major suppliers responsible for producing AMOLED display panels for mid-range and budget Galaxy devices and some Smart TVs.
Back in 2020, Samsung listed BOE as one of its official suppliers of certain products, which is no longer mentioned in the most recent list. The Chinese OEM supplies display panels for TVs and smartphones, while it appears that Samsung is removing BOE from the supply chain due to recent royalty payment controversy.
Earlier, the South Korean tech giant requested BOE for the royalty payment of advertisements that use Samsung’s name, which BOE refused. Since then, Samsung decreased the LCD panel purchases from BOE, giving advantage to CSOT and LG Display.
Aside from this, China’s Sunny Optical joined Samsung’s supply chain in 2022. Meanwhile, the official list discovered by TheElec also misses Japan’s Alps Electric, Nitto Denko, and Rohm. Notably, the company shares a suppliers’ list on a biannual basis to maintain a sustainable policy.
Sunny Optical which remains listed on Samsung’s suppliers’ list for 2022, will be supplying two camera rear camera sensors for the Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone. Besides, the company added Semes to the supply chain, which is its own fab equipment subsidiary.
