Galaxy A30s Android 11 certification means the update is close


Last updated: May 27th, 2021 at 11:46 UTC+01:00

Samsung has already updated the Galaxy A30 to Android 11 and One UI 3.1, but what about the Galaxy A30s, its slightly costlier cousin? Well, the wait for Galaxy A30s owners just got a lot shorter, as the device has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance running Android 11 this week.

The Galaxy A30’s Android 11-based Wi-Fi certification and the actual release of the update happened two weeks apart, so the Galaxy A30’s could get its next major firmware update by mid-June. That’s just an assumption, though. Samsung’s official roadmap pegs the A30s’ Android 11 update for a release in August in many markets, and while the company has a good track record of handily beating those deadlines, it’s still best not to get too excited just yet if you own a Galaxy A30s.

You should also be prepared for the fact that Android 11 will be the final big OS upgrade for your phone. No non-flagship Galaxy phone from 2019 is eligible for Samsung’s promise of three generations of Android and One UI updates. In fact, the list of A series devices that are eligible is pretty short at the moment, so the Galaxy A30s (and Galaxy A30) isn’t the only phone that is missing out.

We will let you know once the Android 11 and One UI 3.x update is released for the Galaxy A30s, so be sure to keep checking back!

Thanks for the tip, Amin!
