Samsung just started rolling out the Android 12 update for the Samsung Galaxy S21. Called One UI 4, it brings several new UI and security features to make your Galaxy its best. From the new Color Palette picker to the Privacy Dashboard, the millions of Samsung users out there have a lot to look forward to.

One UI 4 has only released for this year's Galaxy S21 series so far, but now Samsung has published the full US rollout schedule for all supported devices. That includes the foldables and tablets, Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20 and many more.

Samsung reserved November for the S21 family, but December should see the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 receive the One UI 4/Android 12 update. Other phones will follow into 2022, some going into next August when Android 13 will be coming around. Better late than never.

Bear in mind that the following schedule could change depending on resources or if Samsung runs into any bugs. Phone makers have pulled OS update rollouts before, so it could happen this time around.

All that said, here's the breakdown.
