Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 begin One UI 4 Android 12 beta

Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 begin One UI 4 Android 12 beta

Android 12 has become a huge thing for the platform, even without the Pixel 6, though the latter definitely helps raise its profile. In addition to the major changes in Android's user interaction, Google is also pushing a sort of "spin" that would make apps behave better on screens beyond a typical smartphone.

Samsung One UI 4.0 will bring RAM Plus to more phones

Samsung One UI 4.0 will bring RAM Plus to more phones

Samsung used to adamantly do things its own way to clearly separate itself from the rest of the Android world.

Galaxy S21 One UI 4 Android 12 Beta is now open

Samsung today is definitely not the Samsung from just four or five years ago, at least when it comes to software updates. After being the most notorious, the company has now become the champion of Android updates, rivaling even Google itself. Unlike in the past, it is also now one of the earliest to let the public test upcoming Android upgrades and is sometimes even one of the first to make it available.
