Android 12 was officially released by Google in October for eligible Pixel phones.

The Android 12 update is available for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra in South Korea and Europe. Soon the update will be available in other regions.

And as they promised, the stable Android 12 for Galaxy S21 series is here. The last and fourth beta was released about two weeks ago.
Thanks to Material You Design, Android 12 is one of the biggest updates in many years in terms of UI changes. Fortunately, Samsung has adopted the same design language on One UI 4.0. And if you have any Galaxy S21 phone, you can finally experience Android 12 without opting for beta.
The stable One UI 4.0 update on Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra brings the latest customization and privacy features. Samsung already officially revealed One UI 4.0 at their recent event where they mentioned all the main features of One UI 4.0.
