As in previous years, you need the Samsung Members App on your Galaxy S21. This app will display a banner ad promoting the One UI beta program. Tap on it, follow the instructions and you can give the new software a try.
If you don’t see the banner ad, keep checking back. Samsung is deliberately limiting the beta program so that not everyone will have the opportunity to test Samsung One UI 4.0.
At some point, however, One UI 4.0 will hit more Samsung phones and more regions of the world. Samsung just likes to start simply.
We don’t know if the new One UI will feature a similar design overhaul to what we saw with Android 12 itself. However, Samsung pointed out when it announced that the beta will have “a plethora of theme options” that will allow you to “customize the look and functionality of your device.”
Stay tuned for more information on Samsung One UI 4.0!
