- Samsung’s One UI 4.0 Beta missed its expected release date on September 9th.
- A Samsung community manager has confirmed that the software is not ready.
- There’s no word on a specific rollout date, but the beta should be available sometime this month.
Samsung’s next big upgrade to its Android skin will come in the form of One UI 4.0. The Android 12-based software is eagerly awaited as Samsung’s latest One UI 3.1.1 update didn’t really add many new features to its phones. Samsung has already committed to a September launch of One UI 4.0, and it was expected to launch for the first time in the company’s home market of South Korea on September 9th. However, this did not happen.
Samsung’s South Korean community manager, who is responsible for providing updates to the One UI 4.0 beta, confirmed to members that the software will not be rolled out on the planned September 9th. “We ask for your understanding and can only give you the schedule when the beta is open,” noted the community manager (machine translated) in a forum post.

Samsung Beta Incharge did not specify the cause or duration of the delay. However, since the company has already committed to a rollout in September, the One UI 4.0 Beta shouldn’t be too far away. However, the chances of the update being released this weekend are slim.
One thing is for sure – Samsung will release the One UI 4.0 beta in South Korea before it hits other markets like the US. So stay tuned and if you discover the new beta ahead of us, leave us a tip here and we will thank you for it.
