Samsung delays One UI 4.0 (Android 12) beta for the Galaxy S21 series

The One UI 4.0 beta program is likely to expand to older Galaxy flagships sometime next month.

What you need to know

  • Samsung's One UI 4.0 beta program has been delayed.
  • The company was expected to release the first Android 12-based One UI 4.0 beta for the Galaxy S21 series on September 9.
  • The first One UI 4.0 beta is now expected to arrive sometime later this month.

Samsung announced earlier this month that it would soon kick off the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 beta program for the Galaxy S21 series. The first One UI 4.0 beta was slated to be released in South Korea on September 9. Unfortunately, it now looks like Galaxy S21 users will have to wait slightly longer than expected to try out Android 12.

A Samsung Community Manager has confirmed that the One UI 4.0 beta program has been delayed. Sadly, the community manager did not reveal the reason behind the delay.

There's also no word on when the first One UI 4.0 beta will arrive. However, there's a good chance that Samsung will be ready to roll out the beta to its best Android phones before the end of this month.

In addition to South Korea, the beta program will be available to users in the U.S., Germany, India, China, Poland, and the United Kingdom. As confirmed by Samsung already, the One UI 4.0 beta program is going to be limited to T-Mobile, Sprint, and Unlocked variants of the Galaxy S21 series in the U.S.

While the Galaxy S21 series phones will be the first to get One UI 4.0 beta, Samsung is expected to expand the beta program to the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 series phones as well. The stable One UI 4.0 update, on the other hand, is likely to begin rolling out to the Galaxy S21 series sometime in late November or early December.

The One UI 4.0 update will bring a ton of new features, including a revamped interface with new icons and an updated color palette. Samsung may also get rid of ads with One UI 4.0, although this hasn't been officially confirmed yet.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
