    Samsung has been running beta programs for new versions of Android for a few years now. Initially, these beta programs were restricted to less than a handful of countries, but Samsung eventually started to make them more widely available. For the Android 12 and One UI 4.0 beta for the Galaxy S21 series, the same thing is expected to happen, but is there an exact list of countries where users of Galaxy S21-series phones will get to participate?

    Well, there isn't one right now. At this time, Samsung has only confirmed that the beta will be available in the US and South Korea, two markets which are always first in line. But we can look to past One UI betas from Samsung to get an idea of where else One UI 4.0 will be available for testing before its stable worldwide release.

    One UI 4.0 beta program could launch in seven markets

    In addition to the US and Korea, expect the One UI 4.0 beta program to launch in the United Kingdom, Poland, Germany, China and India. Samsung could expand availability to other markets this year, but for now that's impossible to confirm. Thankfully, Samsung says the One UI 4.0 beta will start sometime this month, and we should get an official list of countries whenever the beta goes live.

    You may also be wondering if the beta will come to devices other the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra. That's also something we can't confirm right now, but the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 beta was made available for all of Samsung's flagships for 2019 and 2020 (barring the original Galaxy Fold) and a few mid-range devices, so we can expect One UI 4.0 testing to happen on more than just the Galaxy S21 lineup, as well.
