A few hours ago, Samsung announced that it would soon release the One UI 3.1 update to its older smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Z series, and several Galaxy A series devices. Earlier today, it started rolling out the update to the Galaxy S20 series, and now it’s time for the update to reach the Galaxy Note 20.
The South Korean smartphone giant has just started releasing the One UI 3.1 update to the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. The new software update is rolling out to the smartphones in Germany and Russia right now, but we expect the rollout to happen in more markets gradually. The new update carries firmware version N98xxU1DUB5 or N98xxU1DUB6, depending on the region.
The One UI 3.1 update brings new features to the Galaxy Note 20 series, including Private Share, improved Single Take, object eraser tool, the ability to remove location data from images while sharing them. It also brings minor UI changes to the phones, but features like Director’s View or Google Discover Feed are missing.
If the update hasn’t reached your Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra yet, you can check for the software update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update menu and then tapping on Download and install on your device. Alternatively, you can also download the entire firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.
