Samsung has started rolling out the update for the Galaxy S21 series globally. The Beta program for the One UI 4.0 and Android 12 OS has been completed and the great news is that the firmware update for the Galaxy S21 series will subsequently be available to all its users globally. Since September, the penultimate stage of software development, which is the beta program, commenced for the Galaxy S21 series in some markets.
In line with the original projection by Samsung for a November release of the firmware to the global market, it has now come up with the update. There is a sequential rollout of the One UI 4.0 update across the regions, but ultimately, all Galaxy S21 series customers will get the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update. This could happen in a matter of days or at most, a couple of weeks.
The firmware will be available first for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Ultra, and Galaxy S21+, while the rest models in the Galaxy S21 lineup will subsequently enjoy the latest update. It is however speculated that it could take some time before all the models in the Galaxy S21 series will get the One UI 4.0 update. There is no schedule from Samsung on the rollout for the devices on the lineup at this time.
The One UI 4.0 adds some exciting and compelling features to the functionality of the Android 12 OS. The modifications and additions look to be over 60 ranging from the color themes to functions and refinements. There are other privacy and security features that Samsung has added to the One UI 4.0 update and this will give users greater control over app privileges.
