Samsung Android 12 update timeline - when your phone will get it

We just received an updated timeline from Samsung about their Android 12 rollout schedule. The new timeline contains more handsets than those lists previously released by Samsung. List also adjusts the release schedule slightly for some phone models.
The list is based on Samsung's Nordic schedule, so it might or might not apply as it is for the rest of the world. But comparing the list to the one released about a month ago by Samsung's global division, the new list seems to be credible for global rollout, too.
