So after a long time of development, testing and perfection, Samsung has finally officially announced the release of One UI 4 for its Galaxy smartphone product lines, starting from November 15.
One UI 4.0 is a highly anticipated update, because it is developed based on the new Android 12 operating system with a series of notable changes and improvements. Furthermore, its predecessor, One UI 3.1.1 update, was disappointing by not delivering major interface upgrades or changes. Therefore, the attention focused on One UI 4.0 is understandable.
