Samsung announces Android 11-based One UI 3.0 beta update for Galaxy S20 series


Last updated: August 6th, 2020 at 06:21 UTC+02:00

Just hours after announcing its newest smartphones, tablets, and wearables, Samsung has announced that it has opened registrations for accessing the developer beta version of One UI 3.0 for the Galaxy S20 series. The new software update is based on Android 11 and will be available to partner developers.

The One UI 3.0 update is in the pre-beta phase right now, and accessing it will require an approved application from Samsung. This means that most users won’t be able to install it on the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or the Galaxy S20 Ultra. For now, the One UI 3.0 developer beta program is only available in South Korea and the US. At a later date, Samsung will release a public beta version of the software to registered users in China, Germany, India, Poland, and the UK.

Both LTE and 5G variants of the Galaxy S20 series smartphones are compatible with the One UI 3.0 update. Samsung has also included the unlocked as well as Sprint and T-Mobile variants of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in the developer beta program. In South Korea, the company is supporting unlocked, KT, LGU+, and SKT variants of the smartphones.

To make sure that essential apps are working correctly, Samsung is inviting approved in South Korea and the US so that they can beta-test their apps and services before the final version of One UI 3.0 is rolled out to Galaxy S20 series smartphones. The company hasn’t revealed any One UI 3.0 features or UI design yet, but we will get to know about them soon.

Samsung has immensely improved its software update game over the past year, and it has sometimes beaten Google to the punch by releasing security patches earlier. During the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event yesterday, the South Korean smartphone giant announced a commitment of three major Android updates for its Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, and Galaxy Z series devices.
