For sure you can. Writing this from rooted S20U on OneUI 4.
Just flash latest magisk canary with OrangeFox (a TWRP fork) which support OneUI 4.

Edit: My bad, you own a exynos S20.
So you can use imagepatchtools to patch your OneUI 3 boot image to OneUI 4. Then use latest magisk canary app to root OneUI 4 boot image then tar it and flash it with odin.

Oh that's great, do you know any guide to do that? Never used that method

The imagepatchtools github is pretty well explained but I admit it's a bit complicated.
Or else would you try this modified twrp: twrp_G98X_geiti_modded_A12.tar ?
I applied the same fix as for snapdragon S20. It should avoid bootloop but you probably won't be able to mount system and vendor from twrp ui. Anyway you will be able to flash magisk which is the simpliest way to root.

Thank you!! And one more question, how should I revert this in case a new beta comes out or stable version of OneUI 4?

No problem!
If you try this modded twrp can you give me a feedback here?
For the next beta you will have to flash back stock firmware then beta updates one after the other or patching all images using above imagepatchtools. But for stable release you will be able to download full firmware and flash it with odin.

I tried the TWRP on beta2 and it didn't even reach the twrp logo.
