Across the globe, Samsung has rolled out the stable One UI 4.0 update based on Android 12 to the Galaxy S21 series. Despite the fact that the software update is rolling out in batches based on the region, it is safe to say that all Galaxy S21 series (Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus, and Galaxy S21 Ultra) devices will soon receive the same update. Initially, Samsung did test its One UI 4.0 Beta Testing Program on the Galaxy S21 lineup for a few months. Furthermore, Samsung did officially confirm that the One UI 4.0 Beta program will be available for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. Several reports are now claiming the Samsung Galaxy Foldable will soon receive the One UI 4.0 Stable update.
According to some reports, some Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable devices have already received the One UI 4.0 beta update. These devices are likely to receive One UI 4.0 before other Galaxy foldable devices of the latest generation.
According to Twitter tipster @FrontTron, the One UI 4.0 update will most likely be available by the first week of December 2021 for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 models. Meanwhile, other Twitter users have also stated that they have received notifications in the Samsung Members app. Regardless, the tipster mentioned that if the release deadline is delayed, the update will arrive in the second week for sure.
We should also note that at the time we wrote this article, both versions of the Galaxy foldable devices received One UI 4.0 beta updates based on Android 12. So far, the beta test program has been smoother than expected, which is positive. Also, the stable release is on its way. This is another plus for Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 users and even those planning to buy one.
There is no need to mention that One UI 4.0 is fully based on the recently released Android 12 OS, which includes all the native Android 12 features. Moreover, it comes with plenty of customizable features and One UI optimizations, including updates to visuals, security, and privacy, as well as all-new home screen widgets, colors, etc. One UI 4.0 will include dynamic themes, lock screen widgets, camera improvements, smoother animations and transitions, and more.
