Samsung One UI 4.0 (Android 12) update: List of eligible & supported devices, release date and more


Samsung is doing one heck of a job with getting the latest Android version — Android 11 — to eligible devices. Within a couple of months, the OEM has pushed the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to a bunch of smartphones including some mid-rangers such as the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy M21.

But that’s not all. Samsung has even started rolling out the One UI 3.1 skin to a bunch of eligible models. More on that here.

Having said that, we hope to see Samsung continue with its quick OS updates for the upcoming One UI 4.0 skin that would be based on Android 12 if past trends are to be taken into account.

Speaking of which, Google recently rolled out the Android 12 Developer Preview for the Pixels to allow developers to start optimizing their apps for the upcoming Android version.

The Developer Preview program will end in May after which Google will release the Android 12 beta to the public. The stable update should go live in the following months, most likely in September if not by the end of August.


Android 12 release schedule

Unlike some other Android vendors, Samsung does not partake in beta programs alongside Google. Instead, Samsung kick-starts its own beta program after Google rolls out the stable update.

Now, since the company announced last year that it will be rolling out 3 major OS updates to certain models, a handful of devices that wouldn’t have got the new update otherwise are now eligible for it.

This means that the company would be rolling out Android 12 to just about every phone that came with Android 10 pre-installed and some models that came with Android 9 pre-installed.

On that note, here’s a list of eligible devices from Samsung that we believe will get the update to Android 12 with the company’s One UI 4.0 skin on top.

Samsung One UI 4.0 (Android 12) release date

Like we mentioned above, Samsung does not shake hands with Google to offer beta updates for its flagships ahead of the public rollout. So unless the company plans to take things up a notch this year with Android 12, we don’t expect much to change.

Therefore, if Google seeds the stable version of Android 12 to the public in September, as it did with Android 11, Samsung users can expect to see the One UI 4.0 beta program for the Galaxy S21 series around a month later.

The beta program should soon expand to other flagships such as the upcoming Note 21 series and the company’s foldable phones that are expected to launch this year.

Finally, the stable update may go live for its 2021 flagships in December if not earlier and most other models will get the update within the next three to four months.
