The Samsung Galaxy Android 12 update, also known as One UI 4, is available from November 15, 2021 for select Galaxy S21 models. After months of beta testing by both Samsung and Google, the update is finally here. If you are wondering when your Galaxy will get Android 12, this is what you need to know.

Google officially released Android 12 about a month ago. Still, manufacturers like Samsung have been working for months behind the scenes to get it ready for more devices, not to mention running its own beta program.

The Samsung Galaxy Android 12 update launches today for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra, and older devices will get it soon. As expected, this release provides new theme settings, a privacy settings control panel, keyboard adjustments, and more. First, here’s a quick video highlighting what’s new and below is a great list of what devices and when to get Android 12.

Which Samsung Galaxy phones will get Android 12, and when?

While the One UI 4 update is currently limited to Samsung’s S21 series, the company says it will be available “soon” on several other devices, as we’ve described below. And yes, that includes folding, tablets and older phones.

Samsung Korea shared a complete list of devices to see an update, but quickly removed the post. Luckily we found it on Twitter.

Galaxy S Phones:

  • Galaxy S21 – Roll out now
  • Galaxy S21 + – Roll out now
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra – Roll out now
  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S20 +
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy S20 FE
  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10 +
  • Galaxy S10 5G

Galaxy Note Phones:

  • Galaxy Note 20 – Available in beta
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra – Available in beta
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10+

Galaxy Foldables:

  • Galaxy Z Fold 3 – Available in beta
  • Galaxy Z Fold 2
  • Galaxy Fold
  • Galaxy Z Flip 3 – Available in beta
  • Galaxy Z Flip 5G
  • Galaxy Z Flip

Galaxy Tab:

  • Galaxy Tab S7
  • Galaxy Tab S7 +

Galaxy A Series:

  • Galaxy A82 5G
  • Galaxy A72
  • Galaxy A52
  • Galaxy A52 5G
  • Galaxy A52s 5G
  • Galaxy A42 5G

The now deleted post from Samsung shared timelines for some of these devices, but given that the company quickly deleted the post, those dates may not be correct. It stated that the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3, S20 series, Note 20 series, Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G could all see the Android 12 One UI 4 update in December.

Then Samsung’s older flagship phones and folding devices like the Galaxy Note 10, S10 series, Galaxy A series and similar devices can expect its arrival in January. Then expect the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 Plus to be among the first tablets to receive the One UI 4 from February.

In conclusion, it is important to remember that these are rough estimates, plus things can and will change when it comes to carriers. For example, AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon in the US are likely to take a little longer to deliver updates to supported devices. Either way, we keep an eye out and report back when we find out more.
