Samsung is rumored to be releasing its new smartphone, the Galaxy S21 FE in January 2022, after a long delay.
There is a lot that is already known about this Galaxy S21 FE smartphone. However, there is new information ahead of its launch, namely that the Galaxy S21 FE will be supported by the Android 12 OS when it arrives.
According the Gizmochina page, Saturday (11/12/2021), the news is based on information on the Galaxy S21 FE firmware software that was revealed from Samsung's servers.
First revealed by SamMobile, the Galaxy S21 FE will immediately use the Android 12 operating system when it is released. This means that this device will also be supported with One UI 4.0 which has a number of new features to changes in the appearance of the interface.
On top of that, if this news is true, the Galaxy S21 FE will get an OS update to Android 15 in the future.
Samsung Promises Android OS Updates For Up To 3 Years
This is because Samsung has promised that a selected premium and mid-end smartphone will be supported by OS updates for up to three generations and security updates for up to 4 years.
Again, if this news is true, the Galaxy S21 FE will be a better choice in terms of software, than the previously released S21 model.
As mentioned by Gizmochina, it makes sense for Samsung to release the successor to the Galaxy S20 FE with Android 12, because the Galaxy S21 FE debuts a year after the Galaxy S21 series.
Moreover, Samsung in 2022 is likely to release its newest smartphone flagship, the Galaxy S22 series, with the same Android version a few days after the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE.
