Samsung Galaxy S20 will Now be Getting the Android 12-based One UI 4 Stable Update Direct

Galaxy S20

A few months now, Samsung has been running around, testing its One UI 4 firmware that nests Android 12. Finally, the scenes for the stable update have been made clear. Recently, the Korean tech giant revealed that it is time for the Galaxy S20 smartphones to receive the stable update next.

This is what Samsung Korea's Beta Operations Manager had to say "there are currently no plans to open additional betas," and the company is "preparing to open the official version." 

Although the actual date isn't out yet, the news genuinely rests on the positive end for many. 

Android 12 Based Update Resumes for Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy Fold 3, and Galaxy Flip 3

In case you've been following us for some time now, you'll know that Samsung's stable updates to One UI 4 featuring Android 12 for the Galaxy S21 family were temporarily suspended because of the complaints flooding from all around. The scene was pretty much similar for the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 devices as well, where the update process was halted due to some Google Play compatibility issues. Luckily the issues have finally been answered.

Reportedly, a new firmware labeled G99xBXXS3BULC has qualified for the Galaxy S21 models. While, the same for Galaxy Flip3 and Galaxy Fold3 F711xxxS2BUL6, and F926xxxS1BUL6 respectively. 

One UI 4.0 Rolls Out for Samsung S20 and S20 FE

Soon after the update for Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy Fold 3, and Flip3 made their way back; the company didn't waste much time introducing One UI 4 to even more devices. This time around, it's the entire Galaxy S20 family, including the S20 FE and Galaxy Note20. 

As of now, nothing is clear about the firmware version or changelog, but you can expect it to be similar to what transpired with the Galaxy S21 family. Taking about the domain, the current update is limited for the devices in Switzerland, but you can expect the same to spread its wings in the upcoming days.

Samsung S10 Gets its Share of One UI 4.0

After Samsung Galaxy S21, Fold 3, Flip 3, and the entire S20 family, it is time for the S10 users to enjoy Samsung's blockbuster firmware, One UI 4.0. Currently seeding in Germany, the new firmware packs the version number G97xFXXUEGULB. The update is all set to feature all the Android 12 goodies alongside the December 2021 Android security patch, new skins, and more.

Do you live in Germany and haven't received the One UI 4 stable build yet? Well, then you better can check for it once manually. Simply head over to your device's Settings and navigate to the Software update menu.

Original Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Receives One UI 4.0

It is a great piece of news for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip owners as it joins the One UI 4.0 party. As you already know, the new firmware brings a new design with more sophisticated widgets, improved icons, brilliant Dark Mode, and much appreciated Always On Display. The update is currently live for the devices in Italy and Switzerland and is expected to reach the global stage in the upcoming weeks.
