Samsung Galaxy S21 series gets its second One UI 4 (Android 12) beta

The second One UI 4 beta is finally here.

What you need to know

  • Samsung has released the second Android 12-based One UI 4.0 beta for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus, and Galaxy S21 Ultra.
  • Aside from numerous bug fixes and improvements, the second beta build brings a new "RAM Plus" feature to the flagship phones.
  • The update is currently rolling out to users in Korea and Germany.

Nearly three weeks after launching the Android 12-based One UI 4 beta program for its flagship Galaxy S21 series phones, Samsung has finally started rolling out the second beta build. If you have signed up for the One UI 4 beta program, you should receive a notification regarding the update on your device soon.

Unsurprisingly, the new One UI 4 update includes a ton of bug fixes and improvements. Some of the highlights include improvements to the input accuracy of the Samsung Keyboard, a new microphone mode in video calls to allow users to choose what kind of sounds should be emphasized, general performance enhancements, and a fix for the "problem with closing when running Secure Folder."

The update also introduces a new color theme and support for virtual RAM. The RAM Plus (virtual RAM) feature made its debut with the Galaxy A52s 5G and was recently rolled out to the flagship Galaxy Z Fold 3 as well. As its name suggests, the feature lets you increase the amount of RAM on your device by using 4GB of internal storage as virtual memory.

The second One UI 4 beta has arrived just a day after Google announced the stable rollout of Android 12. Google plans to push the Android 12 update to its best Android phones "in the next few weeks."

While not quite as premium as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the baseline Galaxy S21 is still a great phone with impressive specs and a much lower price tag. You get great performance, 5G connectivity, a decently large battery, and a flat 120Hz display.

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

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.
