Android 12 beta for Galaxy S21 users : Samsung


Samsung, the South Korean technology giant, is pushing out a public beta upgrade to One UI 4, which is based on Android 12. It will be compatible with Galaxy S21 smartphones.

According to The Verge, this comes just a few weeks before the final OS is expected to become officially accessible on Pixel phones for the first time.

Samsung boasts that it is releasing these betas sooner each year, but it is only by a week or two this year compared to 2020.

The beta programme will open for registration today, the same day the iPhone 13 is introduced. To experience it, users must register through the Samsung Members app – and if Samsung follows past practise, the number of available slots will be limited. It is now only available in the United States.

The beta is for Samsung’s One UI 4, the company’s version of Android. This distinction is critical since one of the most noticeable changes in Android 12 is the way it looks. On a Pixel phone, the buttons are large and the colors vary dynamically in response to your background, a look Google refers to as “Material You.”

We don’t yet know how much of Google’s design language Samsung intends to include into a Galaxy S21 phone. One UI already included a plethora of theming possibilities – and Samsung’s store was brimming with more items consumers could purchase (though most are fairly garish).

Indeed, Samsung’s summary of what’s new in One UI 4 makes a special mention of “theme options.” Samsung’s official list is as follows:

  1. A plethora of theme options allow you to customise the look and functionality of your device, including the home screen, icons, notifications, and wallpapers.
  2. Redesigned and enhanced widgets allow for extensive customization of everything from visibility to look.
  3. Additionally, you gain simple access to a more rich and diversified collection of emojis in one location.

Samsung is also implementing Android 12’s visual indicators for microphone and camera usage. Additionally, it will provide toggles for totally deactivating those sensors.

New widgets will also be welcomed, as the most of them across the majority of Android versions have grown to seem a little dated.
