A new software update based on Android 12 is now available to Fairphone 4 users.
Software Version: FP4.SP28.B.065.20230420
Security Patch Level: 5th of April, 2023
Update size: 71.25 MB
List of changes:
Further personalize your Fairphone with accent colors. System menus and buttons will automatically change color, depending on your Home Screen wallpaper.
Note: originally, the release notes mentioned a ‘Wallpaper and style’ setting. This is not present in the Settings app, and currently there is no way to change the automatic accent color. If there is more information about this feature, I will add it to this thread.

Thank you and have a great weekend!
i am quite serious, when i posted my message and info about it there was just no other post on this update. shortly thereafter the fairphone employee submitted their post. it is bad practice especially here when you guys are constantly pointing out that this forum is all about the users and that fairphone as a company couldnt care less about it officially, so why not give users some respect and maintain the order of posts and findings and not just renumber and belittle users posts.
Awesome to see another update fixing something that was brought up by the community! Will the call quality/noise cancellation be addressed in an upcoming update as well? People often hear themselves when calling them. Also, the call quality is sometimes not consistent. I have reported this in the past, but these tickets have already been closed and I haven’t heard any updates from FP. There are some threads about this.
But the timely accomplishment might be important for some, so perhaps an “I was first!” badge could be created and given to affected users in such a scenario in exchange for prioritising official posts which came later?
I struggle to find this, anyone with more luck?
I did use the Search function in the settings to no avail.
Update installed without problems, rebooted and “System update completed” (or similar) displayed. I even gave it another reboot hoping the setting would emerge. Feeling a bit like someone hunting for an easter egg
It seems there was some miscommunication about this change. As @Razem pointed out, it’s enabled by default. An easy way to check this is to change your Home Screen wallpaper to one with a different predominant color.
I will update the post and release notes accordingly, and ask for more clarity in regards to whether we can expect a manual setting.
It’s not working on my FP4 and I use Hyperion Launcher. Is this only for the stock launcher?
I have also now noticed an issue with the keyboard now and this bug also happens with 3rd party keyboards as well. If you bring up the app selector or if you stop typing and then come back to the keyboard it stops working. Tapping on the keyboard or swapping to different ones doesn’t fix it.
