Last updated: February 9th, 2021 at 09:25 UTC+02:00

After rolling out the Android 11 update to mid-range smartphones like the Galaxy M21, Galaxy M30s, Galaxy M31, and the Galaxy A51, Samsung has released the One UI 3.0 update to the Galaxy M31s. The Galaxy M31s was launched in August 2020 with Android 10 and One UI 2.5.

Samsung has started rolling out the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to the Galaxy M31s in Russia and Ukraine. The new software update, which carries firmware version M317FXXU2CUB1, also brings the latest (February 2021) security patch to the smartphone. While we don’t have the official changelog yet, the new update should bring Android 11 features like one-time permissions, permissions auto reset, chat bubbles, conversations section, media playback widget in the notifications area, and easier smart device controls to the phone.

On top of Android 11 features, the update should also bring One UI 3.0 features such as refreshed UI design, newer stock apps with additional features, improved Digital Wellbeing and Parental Controls, more lockscreen widgets and AoD customizations, and a new design for Bixby Routines. You can see the differences between One UI 2.5 and One UI 3.0 here.

If you are a Galaxy M31s user in Russia or Ukraine, you might have already received the notification regarding the latest update. If not, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the correct firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.
