Expected earlier than expected this year, the first beta of One UI 4.0 could land as early as mid-September. Alongside Android 12 of course.
September promises to be a busy month in the world of new technologies. Between a host of new hardware and software signed by Apple and the deployment ofAndroid 12, back to school promises to be beautiful and sporty. In the background, smartphone manufacturers are preparing their mobile devices for the arrival of Android 12.
Samsung, moreover, is on the war footing. The Korean manufacturer is continuing the development of One UI 4.0 that it will deploy alongside the next version of Android. And if we are to believe the sounds of the hallway, everything suggests that he will execute his maneuver during the month of September, or even mid-September.
One UI 4.0 beta for mid-September?
It is not a question here of the stable version of One UI 4.0, but of a first beta which will give us an idea of the functionalities and novelties of the OS. This deployment schedule is to the credit of a user of the Samsung community forum, relayed by TizenHelp and Android Anthority.
Be careful, however: the statements of the person concerned should be taken with a grain of salt. The latter is unknown to our services, but assures to exercise a profession which allows him to access this kind of information. Nevertheless, a series of clues makes it possible to reinforce his point, without confirming them definitively.
Indeed, some signals show that Samsung is actively working on the deployment of Android 12 – on its Galaxy S21 range at first, as a reminder. For example, one of the modules of Samsung Good Lock – One Hand Operation Plus in this case – was prepared for the arrival of Android 12.
Just take a look at its changelog to see the support for this major update.
The other clue comes from Geekbench, whose list of smartphones lists the Galaxy S21 Ultra equipped with the Android 12 operating system. This therefore suggests that the Korean giant is carrying out testing phases at the moment, for an upcoming and imminent deployment. .
Ahead of its schedule?
Finally, Samsung would simply be ahead of its schedule last year. In 2020, it was not until September to start hearing about One UI 3.0 on Android 11. This year, a brand official spoke in July, and this explicitly:
“Galaxy S21 series One UI 4 beta is coming soon!», We could read. So many elements that lead us to think that the beta of One UI 4.0 could indeed arrive in the coming weeks.
