Update: As per the Beta Operation Manager, Samsung hasn’t announced One UI 4 Beta update for Galaxy S20 series yet. It looks like some lucky customers have received it accidentally or it may have leaked by Samsung team member. There is also chance Samsung may have pulled beta version for another date. As we checked on Reddit forum, more users are claiming they have received new beta version on their Galaxy S20 models. Also, some users from the UK received it too. We will inform you, when there is official announcement.
Today, a few hours ago, we covered that the official Galaxy S Manager announced to release One UI 4 Beta for the Galaxy S20 series very soon. Now, the US users of the Unlocked Galaxy S20 series are getting an Android 12-based beta version. Without any ‘coming soon notice, Samsung has directly released a beta update in the US. We thought the update will first release in the home country, and later come to other countries, but Samsung first chose to roll out in the US.
To apply for the new One UI 4 Beta program, open the Samsung Members app on your Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ & Galaxy S20 Ultra devices. For now, it is open for Unlocked Variants, and soon it will come to other locked models. The stable version for the Galaxy S20 series may release in December says Galaxy S Manager at Samsung community South Korea. The Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3 & Galaxy Z Flip 3 are already inside the beta testing program, and soon they could get a stable Android 12 version.
In the new update, along with Android 12 features, One UI 4 version Samsung has changed plenty of features like redesigned Home screen widgets, more options on the lock screen, Quick settings panel redesign, more features in Samsung keyboard, removed ads from stock apps, and more. Note that, it is an early version of the beta, so some features and apps may not work properly, so you should download the beta version if you are okay with it.
