OneUI 4.0 Stable Release Brings Android 12 to Samsung Galaxy S21 Series

OneUI 4.0

Samsung has rolled out OneUI 4.0 stable release on the Samsung Galaxy S21 series smartphones. The latest generation custom software from Samsung introduces Android 12 on its flagship smartphone series within a month since Google introduced the stable Android 12 variant on its Pixel smartphones. This marks a drastically improved turnaround time in terms of the latest generation software upgrade from Samsung. The latter has typically not had a good track record when it comes to software updates, so this one hits home hard.

OneUI 4.0 brings with itself a host of new software features to suit what Google has shown for Android 12 as well. It has a number of new ‘Colour Palettes’, which ties in with Android 12’s customisable colours for menus, buttons, dashboards and icons. The new Samsung software also allows users to select a wider range of widgets for the Home Screen, adding to the customisability of the software.

OneUI 4.0 also features a privacy dashboard, which Samsung has tied into the Android 12 privacy dashboard with its own skin on top. The privacy dashboard keeps a track of which apps are using which features of your phone, thereby letting you know if your microphone, camera or location services are being excessively used by a rogue app that has nothing to do with them.

Janghyun Yoon, executive Vice President and head of software platforms for Samsung Mobile, said upon the release, “OneUI 4.0 delivers on that promise, equipping Galaxy smartphone users with the latest customisation and privacy features. But we won’t stop there. Soon, other smartphone and tablet users will also be able to benefit from this software update, enabling a more seamless experience across our entire ecosystem.”

The OneUI 4.0 software has been confirmed to release on previous generation Galaxy S, Z and Note series phones. The update has been released alongside a new update for the existing Galaxy Watch series smartwatches as well, barring the Galaxy Watch 4.

The full list of phones getting the update include the Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, S20 FE, Note20, Note20 Ultra, S10, S10e, S10+, S10 5G, Note10, Note 10+, Galaxy Fold, Z Fold3, Z Flip3, Z Fold2, Z Flip, Z Flip 5G, Galaxy A82 5G, A72, A52, A52 5G, A52s 5G and A42 5G. The eligible tablets include Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+.
