After a complicated initial rollout of its stable One UI 4 build for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, Z Flip3, and the Galaxy S21 series, things seems to be now in the right way. After a certain incompatibility issue with Google Play, the company had to halt the update. But today, it has resumed the update for the 2021 flagships. At the same time, the company is rolling out the third beta of One UI 4 for the smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy S10 series and the Galaxy Note 10 series. The company kicked off the beta program for these smartphones earlier this month. So it’s actually making some progress with the third beta coming for the handsets. As expected, the new beta brings software refinement and improvements.
