Last week, Google officially unveiled Android 12. Open beta testing has already started, in which only a few users can take part. Samsung is not among the third-party companies testing Android 12. But the developers of the South Korean giant are almost certainly already working on updating their devices to a new version of the green robot.
Of course, owners of Samsung devices are interested in whether their model will receive an update to Android 12 and when it will happen. The Sammobile website has published a list of devices that, presumably, can expect to receive a new version of the green robot with One UI 4.0 user interface.

Samsung Notes app surpasses 1 billion Play Store downloads
In the past, several Samsung proprietary apps have managed to gain popularity among Android users, as evidenced by the number of downloads from the Play Store digital content store. Samsung Notes has become the next software product of the South Korean company that has managed to overcome the mark of 1 billion downloads in the Play Store.
The application has many useful features that have made it really popular. For example, you can use it to create text notes and reminders, import PDF files with the subsequent ability to add handwritten and voice notes to them.
Despite the fact that Samsung Notes is one of the important proprietary applications of the company, the manufacturer does not pre-install it on all Galaxy smartphones. This is due to the fact that this product was originally developed with the expectation that users will interact with it using the proprietary S Pen stylus. At the time of launching the application, stylus support was present only in Galaxy Note smartphones and some of the company’s tablets, so at first it was only available on these devices. They were later joined by the Galaxy S series smartphones.
It’s worth noting that even without stylus support, the app can be a useful tool. Anyone can download the Samsung Notes application on the Play Store platform, as well as in the Samsung Store.
