    We've entered the second week of One UI 4.0 beta testing, and things are looking positive so far. The beta firmware is available only for the Galaxy S21 series for the time being, which might be a bit disappointing for customers who don't own the 2021 flagship. On the bright side, the Android 12-based One UI 4.0 beta firmware is packed with tons of small changes and enhancements that all contribute to an improved user experience.

    We previously discussed the One UI 4.0 beta firmware update for the Galaxy S21 series in greater detail at SamMobile TV on YouTube. We found no fewer than 60 additions and changes brought forth by the One UI 4.0 beta firmware, and we even got to pick our top 5 features, including smoother UI animations and the new widgets.

    Now, however, we'd like to hear from you — our community. If you're testing the One UI 4.0 beta firmware on your Galaxy S21, this is your time to voice your opinion about the first beta firmware. Let us know your favorite One UI 4.0 features, and tell us whether or not you're happy with the beta program so far. If you have anything to share about Samsung's new Android 12-based firmware update, feel free to join our Telegram group or leave a comment below.

    And if you are a Galaxy S21 owner and you'd like to join the One UI 4.0 beta program, you can do so through the Samsung Members app in regions where the firmware is supposed to be going live. As of this writing, the beta program is live in a handful of key markets, including Korea, the US, and Germany. Samsung wants to make it live in a few additional countries before the end of the year.
