T-Mobile is the latest US carrier to expand the One UI 4 update.
What you need to know
- T-Mobile rolled out One UI 4 based on Android 12 to the Galaxy Note 20 series.
- This update brings new privacy features and visual enhancements.
- The Note 20 series is the latest to get One UI 4 in the US.
While Android 13 is slowly creeping into our minds, OEMs are still managing with the Android 12 update. Samsung seems to be on a roll, and its rapid update cadence continues to impress. Now that more and more T-Mobile users are having fun, the Galaxy Note 20 series has finally received the One UI 4 (Android 12) update.
This morning, multiple Android Central employees received the Android 12 update on their Samsung devices, including the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
It’s worth noting that T-Mobile appears to be the last of America’s best wireless carriers to jump on the Android 12 train for the Note 20 series, after Verizon, which AT&T reportedly beat. Unlocked units received the update even before T-Mobile-related units.
While the global variants of these phones are already in the process of receiving One UI 4, unfortunately, the US is at the mercy of carriers when it comes to major Android updates. Interestingly, these phones are not yet listed on T-Mobile’s support page, as the update has not yet been received.
Given that this is likely to be the last Galaxy smartphone with the Note branding, Android 12 should breathe new life into your phone ahead of the Galaxy S22 launch, which we expect to launch in early February.
If your Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra is not receiving an update notification, navigate to Settings > Software Updates > Download and Install Check manually. It may take some time to roll out to everyone.
