Why the public beta isn’t open to Samsung devices.
Samsung runs its own beta program. It launches a new One UI iteration with every major Android release. So You’ll only get the chance to try out Google’s new software, when Samsung launches the One UI 4.0 beta.
We do not recommend anyone to join the Android 12 beta 1.
This is the first beta of Android 12, which means it may contain bugs and issues that may hamper your phone in many possible ways. No brand, or even Google, recommends that.
You’ll need to factory reset your phone to go back to Android 11 if you face any problem with the beta version.
