What you need to know

  • Samsung posted a notice detailing the One UI 4 roadmap for the U.S.
  • The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will receive the update in December.
  • January and February will update the Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, and Tab S7.

Monday's leak gave us a glimpse of Samsung's Android 12 rollout plans beyond the Galaxy S21 series, at least in South Korea. However, the company has also posted an official notice in the U.S. detailing its launch schedule.

When navigating to the bell icon in the Samsung Members app, the company lists the eligible devices and the month they will receive stable One UI 4. November is reserved for the Galaxy S21 series, which is currently rolling out now, while Samsung's best foldable phones will be updated in December.

In January, the update will arrive for Samsung's older foldable models, most Galaxy S20 devices, and the Galaxy Note series from the Note 10 and later. February will see the update arrive for the Galaxy S20, S10 series, the Tab S7 tablets, and the Galaxy A52 5G. You can see the list below:

November

  • Galaxy S21 series

December

  • Galaxy Z Fold 3
  • Galaxy Z Flip 3

January

  • Galaxy S20+/Ultra/FE
  • Galaxy Note 10 series
  • Galaxy Note 20 series
  • Galaxy Z Flip/5G
  • Galaxy Z Fold/2

February

  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S10 series
  • Galaxy A52 5G
  • Galaxy Tab S7/Plus/Plus 5G

March

  • Galaxy Tab S7 FE

April

  • Galaxy A51/5G
  • Galaxy A71 5G
  • Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G
  • Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

May

  • Galaxy A32 5G
  • Galaxy A42 5G
  • Galaxy Tab S6
  • Galaxy Tab A7 (2020)
  • Galaxy Tab Active3

June

  • Galaxy XCover Pro
  • Galaxy Tab A7 Lite

July

  • Galaxy A21
  • Galaxy A12

August

  • Galaxy A02s
  • Galaxy A01
  • Galaxy A11

The schedule differs from the ones spotted on the South Korean and Brazilian forums, the former of which showed a ton of Galaxy flagships being updated in December. Still, now Samsung Galaxy owners know when they'll get Android 12 on their phones, and most flagship Galaxy owners should expect to receive Android 12 by February, which isn't too shabby.

As usual, Samsung notes that the details could change, particularly if it encounters any issues and that Galaxy owners will be notified via the Samsung Members app if there are any changes. As with the schedule, the listed devices may also vary based on region.

Of course, by February, we'll likely have our eyes on the Galaxy S22 series, which is expected to launch sometime in late January or early February.

  • The Galaxy A72 is oddly missing? Weird the S20 is a month after the S20+
  • Yeah, that is kinda strange. But some models from the same family aren't being updated together, like some of the tablets
  • Got 12.0 and 4.0UI on my GS21U today. At&t branded
  • Same here. Just switched from Verizon to TMO and got it today as well as the TMO bootscreen. That TMO 5GUC is no joke. Sammy really toned down the system UI changes with 12.
  • I was hoping the A32 5G would get the update in its February 2022 quarterly update. Unfortunately, we have to wait until May 2022
  • Is there no update for the A22? That's weird...
  • Verizon S21 Ultra updated last night
  • I am surprised they are going to update the S10.
  • Gotta wait till April for my A51 5g. Oh well.....hurry up and wait I guess
  • No update for A40? That's so weird. A40 doesn't get the update but the A21 get the update... :/
