Seriously, where is the stabled version for beta users? One UI 4.0 is out for many models, including some earlier models of the fold and flip. Meanwhile, we beta users who helped them out with bug reports haven't gotten it yet.

I agree. Why haven't we received the stable update yet?

Glad I wrote that original post and more people are speaking out. I mean we aren't getting all the security updates that everyone else is getting because we are doing THEM a favor, I'm worried about that. We are a day an age where cyberattacks are frequent and most people need multiple monthly updates so stay remotely protected yet here we are, on a beta I don't even know I'm safe on, and I'm STUCK. I spent MORE money to have a unlocked phone for this privilege and it feels like I've been scammed into thinking a Beta was at least dignified and giving up my happiness with my device, on top of that, I can't even leave the program if I wanted too, and if I did at the risk of losing precious data, I know a back up could help, but why should any of us need to do that when Samsung has more then enough resources and money and a promise to support this to the very end.

A backup is highly recommended if things don't work well since they're betas but the fact that we are left out of the loop from the stable version is outrageous

Hello @spencer5520 ,

We are working on releasing an update as soon as possible for our beta members.  Even though not ideal, carrier devices do receive update to Android 12 before unlocked devices. 

Regards
One UI Beta Team

Can we get an ETA? Unbelievable that carrier devices get it along before unlocked beta users.

.... But why? Any hint as to the justification would be greatly appreciated.
