Galaxy S21 phones on US cellular receive Android 12 update
The US mobile Samsung Galaxy S21 series has apparently received Android 12 with One UI 4. A reader, Brian, reached out to us and sent us some screenshots confirming that the rollout has begun.
US Galaxy S21 cell phones now get Android 12
If you look at the images below, you can see that UScell has switched all three Galaxy S21 handsets to Android 12. The devices in question are of course the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra.
As most of you know, Samsung recently started rolling out Android 12 on unlocked Galaxy S21 phones. It seems like the update will now reach carrier variants as well.
When you consider that One UI 4 is built on top of Android 12, there are some Android 12 features in the mix. For example, the privacy dashboard is part of the package along with a number of other features.
Samsung has of course added a ton of its features and customization options. Some that you are used to from previous versions and some new ones that landed. For example, you can now customize the sharing menu to a certain extent.
Samsung offers a few theme options in One UI 4
Samsung also offers a ton of theme options in One UI 4. You can actually pretty much tweak the user interface and color code it to your liking. The user interface is somewhat similar to Material You in this regard, but it is different. Some people will actually prefer that.
The company is doing its best to bring One UI 4 with Android 12 to more of its devices. The Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, Note 20 and S20 are making pretty good progress. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 appear to be the next ones to receive the update.
If you own a Galaxy S21, S21 +, or S21 Ultra from UScellular, the update should be on the way to your phone soon. You can wait for it to appear or you can manually check to see if it is available. You’ll need to navigate to “Settings” and check manually from there.
