Also on Monday evening (13) Samsung has released the first beta of Android 12 and One UI 4 for the Galaxy S21. With the launch of the program, owners of line devices can subscribe and install the update. Among the news, highlighting the brand, are new and better personalization and privacy features.
One UI 4 beta, Samsung’s proprietary interface, is based on Android 12 and can be downloaded on Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra models. Google’s new operating system does not have an official release date yet, although it is expected to be in early October.
To install, users of eligible devices “in select markets” must register for the program through the Samsung Members app. The company, on the other hand, says participants can see the news up close for everyone, and encourages sending feedback on usage.
New interface and security
With one user interface 4, Samsung calls a “unified mobile experience for Galaxy smartphones”. This means, according to the company, that the interface includes “simplified and dynamic interactions”, as well as “a clean and elegant design”. The update also promises “extensive” personalization features, but Google’s Material You design language isn’t mentioned.
Another new thing that should land with the One UI 4 focuses on privacy and protection controls. This includes indicators that the camera and microphone are being used by an app, better control over permissions (with a seven-day history), and more.
