Samsung rolls out One UI 5 Beta 4 for Galaxy S22 Series with a host of fixes
Twitter user Ice Universe has shared a screenshot today, which shows that a new beta firmware update is out for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This is the fourth beta firmware of One UI 5, which is One UI 5 Beta 4, codenamed ZVJ2. It is pretty large, too; 1573 MB or around 1.5 GB, to be precise. More devices are expected to get this update soon.
One UI 5 beta 4 build is also rolling out for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+. The update is available in the US, South Korea, and India. It will reach the rest of the regions in the coming days.
What’s new in One UI 5 Beta 4?
The update brings several new changes to the table, along with the October 2022 security patch. As can be seen in the change log, Samsung has fixed several bugs. Some include crashing issues users face while changing wallpapers or entering app folders. The sound and haptic feedback malfunctioned for some people on One UI 5 Beta 3, which has been fixed too. Some users also reported that the Sleep Mode was turned on by itself; it looks like Samsung has also resolved that issue.
They have also fixed some other instabilities, such as crashes in S-Pen Air Command, broken frames while returning to the Home Screen from a widget, etc. Several things in the gallery app seem to have been fixed too. Apart from all this, there are several other minor bug fixes.
Issues users might face on this version
Keep in mind that One UI 5 is currently under beta testing. So, the One UI 5 Beta 4 is bound to have an experience that is not so hassle-free, just like any other beta firmware.
After installing this update, Samsung pointed out a few issues that users may face while using their phones. If we refer to the change log, we can see that there could be problems using DeX Mode, Quick Share, or the new redesigned and updated lock screen customisation settings.
To be more precise, if you are using DeX Mode and your phone’s screen is turned off, you may see the screen on your monitor go black. After receiving a file from Quick Share, the system could show an error if you try to open the file from the pop-up notification. Besides, the lock screen customisation menu may crash when you select a filter.
Now that you know pretty much everything about this update, you can go ahead and install it. If you see any issues, Samsung suggests reporting them to the developers so they can check into the problem and fix it in the upcoming updates.
