From day to day we are waiting for the release of a stable build of Android 12, which will bring with it a number of changes and innovations. Pixel models from Google will be the first to receive the final update of the new version of the green robot, and devices from other manufacturers, which have become participants in beta testing, can also join them in the early days. There are no Samsung models among them, but this does not mean that the company is not preparing to update its devices to One UI 4.0 based on Android 12.
We received a message that beta testing of the One UI 4.0 proprietary shell based on Android 12 will start this month. The specific release date of the update is not named. We only know which smartphones will be the first to test the update.
