Features of Samsung One UI 4
Samsung released a public beta of the One UI 4 update for Android 12 in September, with new themes, colour palettes, and privacy settings included.
Users can now customize the look and feel of the home screen icons, menu, button, and background with a new set of Color Palettes included in the stable update. New widgets, as well as a larger selection of emojis, GIFs, and stickers, have been added to the keyboard. Samsung One UI 4 includes notifications when an app tries to access the camera or microphone, as well as a new privacy dashboard with settings and controls for easy monitoring. Third-party apps and services are now supported in the same way.
Meanwhile, a notice promoting the One UI 4 rollout schedule on Samsung smartphones was allegedly posted and then taken down. Tron (@FrontTron), a tipster, posted an image in Samsung Members that he claims is a translation of the now-deleted official notice. According to the notice, a few phones from the Galaxy Z, Galaxy S20, and Galaxy Note 20 series will receive the update in December. The update is expected to arrive in January for the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, and other older foldables, with tablets following in February.
