Samsung One UI 4 features

Samsung released the Android 12-based public beta of the One UI 4 update in September adding new themes, colour pallets, and privacy settings.

The stable update rolling out now brings more customisation options with a new set of Color Palettes, allowing users to change the look and feel of the home screen icons, menu, button, and background. It gets new widgets and a wider variety of emoji features, GIFs, and stickers on the keyboard. Samsung One UI 4 privacy features include alerts when an app attempts to access the camera or microphone, a new privacy dashboard for settings, as well as controls for easy monitoring. The update also extends seamless support to third-party apps and services.

Meanwhile, Samsung allegedly posted and then removed a notice highlighting rollout schedule for One UI 4 on its smartphones. Tipster Tron (@FrontTron) posted an image which is claimed to be a translation of the now-deleted official notice in Samsung Members. As per the notice, a few phones belonging to Galaxy Z series, Galaxy S20 series, and Galaxy Note 20 series will get the update in December. Samsung Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10 series and older foldables may get the update in January, followed by tablets in February.
