Samsung is rolling out its latest Android skin in One UI 4. Here's when your phone will receive the update.
Less than a month after Google rolled out the Android 12 update for compatible Pixel devices, Samsung has started rolling out the One UI 4 update (based on the latest version of Android) to the Galaxy S21 series.
The newest iteration of Samsung's Android skin packs several new features, customization options, and enhanced privacy options.
Samsung has incorporated almost all the key Android 12 features in One UI 4, including dynamic color theming and redesigned widgets. There are new color palettes to choose from that will change the color accents of all system components, including the home screen, icons, system UI, and menu buttons.
The stock keyboard has also been improved and now provides access to a range of emojis, GIFs, and stickers. The new privacy features include the option to only share your approximate location with apps, a Privacy dashboard that gives an overview of all the recently accessed permissions, and more.
