Samsung has started to roll out the stable One UI 4 update based on Android 12. The stable release comes after two months of beta builds for the Galaxy S21 series in the U.S., Korea, India, UK, Germany, Poland, and China

One UI 4 doesn't change too many things from a design point of view, with Samsung instead focusing on integrating all the new features that Google introduced in Android 12. That said, there are exciting changes around home and lock screen customization, notification management, privacy and security, and much more.

The Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra are now receiving the stable update, and Samsung has outlined when other devices in its portfolio will get the update. So let's first take a look at all the devices slated to switch over to the Android 12-based One UI 4, and when the devices will get the stable build.

Full list of Samsung Galaxy phones eligible for the One UI 4 (Android 12) update

With Samsung promising three Android updates to its flagships starting with the Galaxy S10 series, there are a lot of devices scheduled to get One UI 4. Samsung makes the best Android phones, and while the Galaxy S21 series has a lot to offer, a bulk of Samsung's sales come from the mid-range Galaxy A series.

Samsung offers the same three Android update guarantee to Galaxy A phones as well, and that means older mid-range phones will receive the Android 12-based One UI 4 update. These are all the Galaxy phones that are slated to make the switch to One UI 4:

When will my Samsung Galaxy phone get the One UI 4 (Android 12) update?

Now that the One UI 4 stable update has made its way to the Galaxy S21 series, Samsung is turning its attention to other devices on the list. The foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 are next in line, followed by the Galaxy Note 20 series. Samsung did a remarkable job updating the mid-range Galaxy A series to One UI 3.0 at the start of the year, and the Galaxy A52 is scheduled to get One UI 4 in February 2022.

Samsung has shared the official rollout schedule for the stable One UI 4 build for the U.S., so here's a look at when your Galaxy phone will get the update:

November

  • I honestly don't even look forward to the complete version upgrades anymore as they always break Good Lock and I have to wait for months for it to regain functionality.
  • So true. Love Good Lock.
  • Almost all the Good Lock Modules are working with Android 12, over the course of a few days which is pretty cool. I think there are one or two now that aren't compatible with Android 12.
  • My s21 ultra on Att got the update this morning and my coworkers s21 on sprint got his this morning as well
  • On my 21U there is such a lag and is choppy AF when scrolling through 90% of apps. I guess it messed the adaptive refresh rate.
  • I got Android 12 a few days ago, T-Mobile was faster on the draw this time. I'm loving the new look and features, especially the cool emoji!
