Samsung Announces One UI 4 Beta Based on Android 12

One UI 4 Beta will be available for Samsung Galaxy S21 users

The official date of the Android 12 release is not out yet, but Samsung already has announced the public beta build for One UI based on Android 12. That is something Samsung truly deserves credit for. The One UI 4 Beta will only be for Galaxy S21 series that consists of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Dr TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business says, “One UI 4 helps users create their own, optimized mobile experience because Samsung recognizes that, everyone wants to meet their unique needs and preferences. As we’ve done with every iteration of our One UI, we’ve listened to our users to understand the tools and innovations needed to create a better, more reliable, and enhanced overall user experience.”

Just yesterday there were leaks suggesting that Android 12 might be out on the 4th of October. Samsung has announced the One UI 4 beta, but it is limited to certain regions. Those regions are UK, China, India, Germany, Poland, and South Korea.

So what does the One UI 4 beta offer? To put it in Samsung’s words, “One UI 4 beta participants will be able to experience comprehensive customization capabilities and privacy controls that empower them to design their ideal mobile experience — one that’s uniquely suited to their individual needs and allows them to express who they are.”

Being inspired by “Material You”, the beta build will offer an array of customization to the widgets. There are several theme options added to adjust how the home screen, icons, notifications, wallpapers, etc., look without compromising on their functionality. More emojis have been added too.

The Privacy and Protection functions make it convenient for users to check how their data is being used. There will be indicators that will alert you which permissions an app currently has while using it and you disable it right there. You will also be able to view your permissions history from the last seven days, not just the last 24 hours.
