Samsung launched the Galaxy A72 smartphone last March with Android 11-based One UI 3.1 onboard. While the device is compatible with three generations of OS upgrades, the company provided the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 (changelog below) update in early January.
It’s noteworthy that the Korean tech giant rolls out every new firmware update in different phases, which helps it ensure the stability of a new release. However, the Galaxy A72 gets new software updates on a quarterly basis, we can expect, the company will conclude the Android 12 rollout for this device within this month.
Samsung’s Android 12 update brings new privacy features to the Galaxy smartphones, while the new indicators let users be aware of the Camera and Mic access in real-time. Moreover, the One UI 4.0’s Dynamic Themes feature paints the entire interface with a dominant color from the home screen wallpaper.
