Samsung fans are looking forward to the One UI 4.0 beta that will give them a glimpse of Android 12 as well. The company is yet to launch the beta. It appears that the beta may be launched much earlier than expected.

Some information about the next major update has now surfaced. It reveals some of the cosmetic changes that Samsung is going to introduce with One UI 4.0.

Big cosmetic changes claimed for One UI 4.0

Samsung does make some cosmetic changes to every major release of One UI. So it was already expected that visual enhancements will be part and parcel of the One UI 4.0 update. Precisely what these changes will were previously a mystery.

According to a new leak, One UI 4.0 will include changes to the app icons and color scheme. It will apparently be somewhat similar to the vanilla Android 12 look. It's even claimed that Samsung will adapt the Android 12 Material You UI for its custom One UI skin.

Software optimizations will be made for improved performance with the Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 shipments. Samsung will make minor Knox improvements as well. A major update for the Samsung Notes app is said to be in the pipeline as well. That might be due to a lot more Samsung devices supporting the S Pen now.

Do keep in mind that none of this has been officially confirmed as yet. We'll only come to know for sure about all of the One UI 4.0 changes once the beta goes live. It has emerged from Samsung's own official forums today that the Android 12 One UI 4.0 beta could go live in about a month or so.

The beta is going to be limited to select Samsung devices. The company will eventually make the update available to all One UI 4.0 compatible devices once the public release takes place.
