Full global deployment is just around the corner
It’s been less than a week since the Galaxy Note20, Z Flip3, and Z Fold3 started seeing Android 12 in the US, as Verizon leads the charge ahead of other carrier and non-carrier units themselves receiving updates. . Now the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is next in line, with Android 12 currently rolling out for the phone.
Android 12 first went live for the S20 FE late last year (earlier than initially expected), with the update arriving for the Exynos variants in Switzerland. As with most updates, we’ve seen a gradual roll-out in the distribution, and now it’s the US’s turn to receive the firmware (per SamMobile). S20 FE users in the US can now enjoy One UI 4 based on Android 12, which is already available for carrier models Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Sadly, AT&T hasn’t joined the Android 12 game yet, but it’s only a matter of time before everyone else is caught up.
If you have an S20 FE in the US, you should see this OTA update notification anytime (assuming you haven’t already). You can also manually check if it’s available by going to Settings> Software Update> Download & Install.
With the update, you can expect all of the best features of Android 12 and One UI 4, including a more personalized experience through Material You and icon packs. Improved widgets, improved privacy, and a refined user interface – now you know the drill – are also on the menu.
We don’t know how it will work yet, however.
