The third Galaxy S21 One UI 4.0 beta update rolled out in all beta-participant countries earlier today. We went hands-on with the latest beta build, and we have a new hands-on video for you at SamMobile TV.

Although Samsung’s latest release doesn’t bring extensive changes compared to what we got before, it tightens up the UI in anticipation of the final release. A few bugs that came to light in the previous beta updates are supposed to be gone, and ads in first-party apps also seem to have disappeared for good.

New Samsung Weather app and unified system icon colors

Aside from the less obvious changes, One UI 4.0 beta 3 features a redesigned Weather app. It’s more animated, adorned with stylized graphics that change depending on the weather and the time of day. And most Samsung icons can now share a single color.

The changelog for the new Android 12-based beta update also seems to be hinting at the final One UI 4.0 update going live soon — hopefully by the end of November.

If you don’t feel like joining the beta program but want to have a quick look at the third update, or you want to keep busy while you’re updating your Galaxy S21 to the new beta build, check our One UI 4.0 hands-on video below, and feel free to join us on social media groups.
