This One UI 4.0 rumor is frustratingly vague
One UI 4.0 is going to be the next major upgrade for Samsung’s custom Android interface. It will accompany Android 12, which Google and some other manufacturers are currently letting their users test before the public release later this year. Samsung will run its own One UI 4.0 beta program if history is any guide, but could that beta program start as early as next week?
Well, that’s the conclusion some are jumping to following the latest post from leakster Ice universe on Chinese microblogging website Weibo. The post simply says that “One UI 4 will start to explode next week”, and it’s frustratingly vague. The company has been testing One UI 4.0 and Android 12 for the Galaxy S21 series for a couple of weeks, and perhaps it will double down on development over the next few days and start testing it on more devices? Perhaps it means we’re getting an extremely early beta program? Well, it’s impossible to be sure.
If we’re being honest, we don’t think Samsung will let us test One UI 4.0 so soon, considering even Google is in the early stages of beta testing Android 12 on Pixel smartphones. Maybe we will be proven wrong – Samsung has been making great strides in its software update game in the last year or so, after all. But we’re pretty sure we won’t. Even One UI 3.1.1 is yet to arrive, so there’s no way One UI 4.0 will start hitting Galaxy devices any time soon, either in beta or stable form.
