Samsung announced this morning that it was ready to roll out the One UI 4 and Android 12 for the Galaxy S21 range, and Verizon was quick to join the party. All three of its Galaxy S21 devices should receive the update today.
The update hits the Verizon Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra today with the following build numbers and the November Android security patch:
- Galaxy S21: SP1A.210812.016.G991USQU4BUK7
- Galaxy S21 +: SP1A.210812.016.G996USQU4BUK7
- Galaxy S21 Ultra: SP1A.210812.016.G998USQU4BUK7
If you are missed our previous coverage of Android 12 and One UI 4 together that changelog Posted this afternoon provides more details. Users should customize the color palette with the Android 12 wallpaper, new widgets (including redesigned lock screen widgets), several new emoji features, grammar corrections in the keyboard, tweaks to the camera user interface, an improved video and photo editor, new Editing tools in the gallery app, a new driving monitor in Digital Wellbeing, the data protection dashboard, a new charging animation and support for Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) for those who need 2 phone numbers on one device.
Again, Verizon is listing the update as available today, so don’t hesitate to check it out. You can find it under Settings> System Updates> Check for System Updates.
Let us know when you see it!
Oh, and for those of you keeping track, assuming Verizon actually releases those Android 12 updates today, they’re a full month before last year’s December version of Android 11. Samsung still the king.
