What you need to know

  • A roadmap for the One UI 4 release was accidentally posted online.
  • The roadmap shows a slew of Galaxy smartphones being updated in December and January.
  • The Galaxy S21 series is already receiving the stable Android 12 build.
  • Updates could go until August 2022, depending on the region.

Samsung has just launched stable One UI 4 for the Galaxy S21 series, but for anyone wondering when their phone will get Android 12, a leaked roadmap shows Samsung's alleged plans for its rollout.

Apparently, the timeline was erroneously posted on the Samsung Members app and shows the schedule for the Android 12 rollout on various devices through 2022. The schedule was translated from Korean, so it most likely only reflects the rollout in that region, but either way, it shows that Samsung is planning to bring the update to its best Android phones as soon as possible.

As pointed out in the tweet and the notice, the schedule is subject to change as the company irons things out. Given that the schedule was taken down, this may be the case as Samsung finalizes the rollout.

Of course, take it with a grain of salt, but so far, things seem to be right on schedule with the Galaxy S21 series already receiving One UI 4. Based on the schedule, we might expect a ton of Galaxy smartphones to receive the update in December.

Of course, this schedule will likely differ based on the region. A community post (opens in new tab) in Brazil (via XDA-Developers) has a different rollout schedule, with One UI 4 launching in December for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, followed by the S21 series and other foldables in January.

Still, given Samsung's impressive update cadence, we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung stuck to its schedule in Korea. And hopefully, and with any luck, other regions such as the U.S. would follow closely. We'll be waiting with bated breath.

  • Noticeably missing from the list is the A32 5G which should qualify for the One UI 4 (Android 12) upgrade. It was released in Jan 2021 with Android 11 (One UI 3.1) and gets quarterly updates, so I was hoping it would get Android 12 in the Feb 2022 update and not wait until May 2022. Note the A32 and A32 5G are different models
  • December for my Fold 3! Woop woop!
  • Good to see Tab A7 lite included in this , possibly the only OS upgrade it might see
  • The list is a bit different than one released on samsung members app in my country. There is a big void in march. I suspect most of the mid-rangers will have seen the update by then, as was the case with One UI 3. Many phones received One UI 3 before schedule in 2021.
  • I gotta wait till April for the upgrade on my A51 5g. Oh well
