Samsung has ended the One UI 4.0 Beta testing program for the Galaxy S20 series in South Korea. The company will not recruit more users to the program, and also it may not release beta updates in the future for smartphones. It means the next firmware release for the device will be a stable One UI 4 version in the country. Samsung had opened a beta program for the Galaxy S20 series at the beginning of last month, and currently, it has received a second beta version with known bugs fixes.
The stable version of Android 12 has been rolled out on the Galaxy S21 series after the fourth beta version. It looks like the company won’t need to release that many beta updates for Galaxy S20, and it is now ready for a stable version after the second beta. The official roadmap for One UI 4 has mentioned the flagship model will get a global version in December and we are now in the new month. The roadmap for almost all countries shows the same month for rollout so it could start this week or the next one.
The beta program for Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Z Fold 3 & Flip 3 have also started in the same week, so they might get the stable update in the same period. The beta program will just end for these devices this month, but on the other hand, Galaxy S10 & Galaxy Note 10 series will be joining it. We will inform you when the company releases stable Android 12 updates for Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ & Galaxy S21 Ultra devices.
Update: As we go through more research, we found out Samsung has also stopped recruiting users for the Galaxy Note 20 beta program. many users on the Samsung community forum have confirmed it and say the official recruitment banner has disappeared. The Beta Operation Manager has also mentioned December 1st is the deadline to participate in the program. Now on, the new users can not participate in the beta program, and they have to wait for the official stable Android 12-based One UI 4 update.
