Launched back in 2020, Samsung Galaxy M51, Galaxy M31, Galaxy M21, Galaxy M11, and Galaxy M01 came pre-installed with the Android 10-based One UI 2.x out of the box. All of the Samsung Galaxy M devices are eligible for the major Android 12 upgrade, as the company promised last August.
Starting last year, Samsung upgraded all of these devices to the new Android 11-based One UI 3.x version. Moving ahead, the company has started delivering the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update to the eligible Galaxy devices from November 2021 and One UI 4.1 from March 2022.
As expected, the Korean tech giant has offered the Android 12 to the flagship devices, however, remaining mid-range and budget phones will get this major update until the third quarter of this year. Also, it’s expected that several Galaxy phones may directly get the One UI 4.1 with Android 12 OS upgrade.

These Samsung devices could get Taskbar feature with Android 12L
Samsung introduced the Android 12L-based One UI 4.1.1 software with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphone. Following this, other Galaxy device users started wondering about the eligible devices for the stellar Samsung Android 12L Taskbar feature.
According to the information, Samsung promised to bring the Android 12L software upgrade to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable smartphone, which could be released anytime from now on. Besides, we are guessing Android 12L update with Taskbar feature could roll out to Galaxy tablets as well, so what about eligible devices?
Samsung Taskbar Eligible Devices
- Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Galaxy Z Fold 2 – Uncertain
- Galaxy Fold – Uncertain
- Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
- Galaxy Tab S8 Plus
- Galaxy Tab S8
- Galaxy Tab S7+ – Uncertain
- Galaxy Tab S7
Google says Android 12L is a special feature drop, which makes the Android OS 12 even better on large screens. The company has further polished and optimized the system user interface for large screens, making multitasking more powerful and intuitive.
The Android 12L OS comes with a new taskbar, which makes multitasking even easier than before. Gestures make using the taskbar even faster, with drag and drop to enter split-screen mode and swipe up to go home. On Samsung Fold 4, the taskbar is smarter as it appears and disappears as per the usage.
Created by the South Korean tech giant, the One UI 4.1.1 is based on the Android 12L OS, which could introduce the new Taskbar feature on big-screen and foldable Galaxy devices after the initial debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 at August Unpacked.
Here is the Samsung Android 12L Taskbar feature
Samsung One UI 4.1.1 is based on Google’s Android 12L operating system, which is ready to activate the starry Taskbar feature on big-screen and foldable Galaxy devices after the initial debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Inspired by the Android 12L OS, the One UI 4.1.1 brings the Taskbar feature to the latest Samsung foldable smartphone in order to take consumers’ multitasking experience to a whole new level.
The newly debuted Taskbar feature allows you to access and switch between your most used apps, seamlessly. The layout and functionality of this feature are almost similar to your Windows-powered Galaxy Book devices.
Samsung Taskbar feature lets you instantly switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows or split their screen in half by just simple swipe gestures, which elevates new possibilities of multitasking on mobile phones.
The company crafted the user interface with brilliant minds, resulting, in Taskbar only appears when you are using an application or two or three. It automatically disappears when you are on the homescreen of your foldable phone.
As soon as you open any app, the Taskbar activates at the bottom alongside the navigation buttons, letting you seamlessly switch between apps that are already available in the Taskbar area.
You can enable multi-windows now even easier by just pressing and holding app icons and bringing them to the screen area. As you can see in the video clips below, how three apps are working on a single screen, simultaneously.
Another interesting feature is that you can make a group of apps. For example, if you are using three apps at the same time, you can add a group of them and store them in Taskbar, once pressed, all three windows will be activated.
