Samsung Galaxy S21 start receiving Android 12

Samsung has announced that it will begin releasing its Android 12-based One UI 4 major update for the Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra starting today, November 15th.

This release follows a two-month One UI 4 beta program for the Galaxy S21 series. So, most of the news that start to reach users today, have been tested since September, with no bugs and improved features.

In terms of smartphone personalization, the new UI brings the user access to new color palettes to change the smartphone image, new app icons, new notifications area and even different wallpapers. There are even new "re-imagined" widgets that will allow for even deeper customization.

For communication, Samsung will now provide a functionality associated with emojis. According to a promotional video, the feature will be called Emoji pairs, and allows you to create gifs or stickers from two chosen emojis.

With Android 12, upgraded smartphones will also take advantage of new associated security and privacy features. One of the examples is receiving a notification whenever an app is going to use the camera or the microphone, which can be disabled through the quick settings area.

But these are just some of the examples of features that Android 12 and One UI 4 will bring to these smartphones.

How to Check Upgrade to One UI 4

To check if the update is already available on your Samsung Galaxy S21, you should go to Smartphone Settings and look for Software Update. The system itself will check if there is any update available and, if so, just go ahead with the download and its installation.

There is still no indication of release dates for the update for other models, but Samsung indicates that it should happen "soon" for previous Galaxy S, Galaxy A, Note and folding models, in addition to tablets, which will also receive an update.
