TL;DR
  • Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra owners in the UK can now access the One UI 4 beta.
  • The beta program allows you to test out Android 12 before it becomes stable later this year.
  • Samsung will also enroll Galaxy S20 phones soon.

So far, Samsung has rolled out Android 12 beta support to its 2021 flagships, including the Galaxy S21 series. Now, the defunct Galaxy Note series is gaining access to the latest software from Samsung.

Starting today, people who own the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in the United Kingdom can sign up for the One UI 4 beta (via SamMobile). This latest version of One UI is based on Android 12, which itself only went stable a month ago.

Samsung did not confirm when, but it is very likely support for other countries will land soon. That would include China, Germany, India, South Korea, and the United States.

Meanwhile, news spread earlier today that One UI 4 beta support was also rolling out to the Galaxy S20 series (also via SamMobile). However, Samsung pulled this update for now. That didn’t stop some folks from being able to register for it here in the US, but a full rollout will likely come soon.

Either way, to get access to Android 12 on your Samsung device, you’ll need the Samsung Members app. Log in to that app with your Samsung account and then search for the One UI beta banner. If you don’t see it, the beta isn’t available for you yet, but keep checking to nab your slot as soon as you can.
