Samsung wants to release Android 12 and OneUI 4 as soon as possible
Samsung would prefer to move forward and provide Android 12 on its smartphones after Google released it in an AOSP version.
The release of Android 12 does not adhere to the traditional Google calendar that has been in place for several years. Many cellphones accessed the beta as early as the spring beta before the system was released for the fastest as early as the end of summer. Instead, we have an Android 12 whose beta was kept far more secret, was prolonged over time, and whose device rollout has yet to begin in October.
Although Google has released the AOSP version of Android 12 to allow manufacturers and developers to adjust their work for the new version seriously, the company has yet to release Android 12 on its own Pixel. This appears to irritate Samsung, which would want to offer a relatively quick rollout on its Galaxy devices.
According to a message sent to Samsung's community, the company hopes to release Android 12 in a stable version "by December at the latest," which would be in a few weeks at the time of writing
On December 14, Samsung released the stable version of Android 11 for the Galaxy S20 in Kenya. As a result, the company appears to be trying to make up for Google's delay by not shifting its timetable and sticking to its tradition of launching the next main version of the system in December on its year's flagships.
A beta of Android 12 with the One UI 4 interface is already available on Samsung's devices. Despite this, Samsung's statement underlines that the schedule is still unknown. On October 20, the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event may provide an opportunity to learn more.
