At the end of last month, Samsung stopped recruiting new users in the One UI 4 Beta testing program for Galaxy S21 series. Now after the fourth beta version, the Beta Operation Manager has confirmed there won’t be any further beta updates for the Galaxy S21 series. In the user’s answer at the South Korean Samsung Community, he said, the company will not dispatch any new updates. The next major update for the Galaxy S21 devices will be the official or stable Android 12-based One UI 4 version.
The Beta Operation manager further mentioned all the issues that occurred in the fourth beta will be solved, and after correction, the final version will be delivered. Note that, there may not be a fifth beta update for the device, but Samsung might release a hotfix update if it is necessary. The manager hasn’t revealed the exact schedule for the One UI 4 stable rollout. As per his previous posts, it could happen before the end of this month.
There was chatter in between users about the new beta update when popular tipster Ice Universe claims about the 5th beta version. He claimed in the next beta Samsung will bring back the stretch overscroll effect. He may not be wrong after all, and the company may bring it in the stable version. Samsung is also testing the One UI 4 beta version with Galaxy S20 series, Note 20 series, Z fold 3 & Z Flip 3 devices.
