Samsung just brought the Android based One UI 4 12 in stable version on Galaxy S series flagships 21. And this means that now it’s up to the others: in the roadmap the next ones are the other top of the range of this year, or the folding Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galazy Z Flip 3, for which the distribution of the second beta began just yesterday.
But if Samsung has made a good name for itself in the Android market when it comes to software support, it’s no coincidence. And in fact today we officially learn that the owners of Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip will have to wait yes, but not that long. On Samsung Members, in fact, the company has announced that in the coming weeks the One UI 4.0 beta program will also open for last year’s foldables .
Initially the affected markets should be China, Germany, India, UK and US. Gradually, the beta should open globally, thus also reaching Italy. This is the first step towards the stable release, which will come only after some versions of the beta necessary to correct errors and bugs. However, times seem to be tight; Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip are expected to make the leap to the Samsung-branded version of Android 12 already next month , and therefore by 2021.
A similar fate, moreover, if everything continues to go according to plan, it should also affect the Galaxy S family 20. In short, by the end of the year Samsung may have updated to the latest version of the green robot all the top devices released in 2020 and in 2021: not bad.
