Android 12 beta rollout continues
Samsung is on the rise with its update One UI 4 based on Android 12. The Korean smartphone giant has already released the stable version One UI 4 for the Samsung Galaxy S21 series worldwide. It is also currently testing the update for several other devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold3, Flip3, and Note20 series. Today, a day after the Galaxy Note10 series jumped on the One UI 4 beta bandwagon, the company announced (via TizenHelp) the Android 12 beta program for its flagship Galaxy S 2019: the S10 series.
Like its sibling Note, the S10 series is only getting the beta of One UI 4 in South Korea so far. However, it should only be a matter of time before Samsung rolls out the beta program to other parts of the world. The beta version of Android 12 is available for the entire Galaxy S10 range: the S10e, the standard S10 and the S10 +. If you live in South Korea and want to install One UI 4 beta on your S10, you need to join the beta using the Samsung Members app first. After that, the OTA update should appear for download on your device.
The One UI 4 update doesn’t bring any significant new changes. Still, Samsung has done well in incorporating the best features of Android 12, including its own version of Material You, Privacy Dashboard, a modified notification shade, and a Quick Settings panel. As noted in our One UI 4 review, the release is all about the little things.
According to the timeline released by Samsung in its Members app, the Galaxy S10 series is expected to get the One UI 4 / Android 12 stable update in February 2022 in the US. The phone launched in 2019 with Android 9 out of the box, so this will be the third major operating system upgrade it will receive since launch, all thanks to Samsung’s extended software support policy. . After that, however, the S10 series will only be eligible to receive another year of security patches from the Korean giant.
