The Galaxy S21 series by Samsung is under the Android 12 based One UI 4.0 beta program for almost a month now. Today, the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra are finally leaving the beta stage as the stable update of the latest customized skin has started rolling out worldwide.
Yesterday, Samsung accidentally pushed the timeline for the stable One UI 4.0 rollout on the Samsung Members app. But as the post was later deleted, we were not sure if the schedule was finalized. But, looks like it was for Galaxy S21 as it mentioned the stable build for the series this month.
The One UI 4.0 stable update is rolling out for the Verizon variants bundled with firmware version SP1A.210812.016.G991USQU4BUK7 for Galaxy S21. While the number differs to SP1A.210812.016.G996USQU4BUK7 and SP1A.210812.016.G998USQU4BUK7 for Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra respectively. Also, it maintains the security patch level to November 2021.
The package will gradually extend to more regions in the upcoming weeks. The users have to keep patience till that time. “We are committed to giving everyone access to the best mobile experiences possible, as soon as possible,” says Samsung.
Talking about the features, the One UI 4.0 will allow you to create a customized mobile experience, making it more expressive, dynamic, and personal. It arrives with new Color Palettes, redesigned widgets, a variety of emoji features, GIFs, and stickers on Samsung Keyboard, a new privacy dashboard that alerts you when an app is accessing a camera or microphone, and a whole lot more.
