Galaxy S21 One UI 4.0 beta launch delayed (indefinitely)

Galaxy S21 One UI 4.0 is delayed indefinitely
The beta version of Samsung's newest Android skin, namely One UI 4.0, was supposed to be released no later than today, September 10. However, that day is now over, and it didn't end up happening—and now, it turns out we'll be stuck waiting for an indefinite amount of time.

This may be frustrating news for owners of the Galaxy S21 series out there who were hoping to get their hands on the new skin for some early-bird beta testing. Samsung had announced months ago that only its top-of-the-tier flagship line would be given the opportunity to participate in the beta test, before the official version was launched to all. 

South Korean owners of the Galaxy S21 family would have been be the first to receive the beta update today, with the rollout then extending to the rest of the world soon after. However, the tech giant's home country is just as stuck waiting for beta testing to start as we are.

We still don't know very much at all about what the Android skin's newest version will have to offer. Not so long ago, a frequent tipster named Ice Universe told us that One UI would switch up some things within the user interface, as well as add a transparency effect to the notifications section. 

We're also apparently getting a new charging animation, by the looks of it, as Ice Universe Tweeted a clip of what seems to be the new one (although it's unlikely to be the final version, as basic as it appears in the video):


As some may have noticed, Samsung ended up skipping the One UI 3.5 update this year, focusing instead to put all of its effort towards the official One UI 4.0 version. However, apparently that didn't speed up the process, as we're still left waiting for as long as it takes to finally reach us. 

Which Samsung phones will get One UI 4.0?


Here is a complete list of who is getting the newest skin version, as figured out by SamMobile according to Samsung's software update policy (hint: not many users are likely to be left out, as most popular phones will be supported):
