Galaxy S20 FE Android 11 update is still months away, Samsung admits

The Android 11 update for the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) is still months away, at least in some European markets, Samsung confirmed. That’s according to the official One UI 3.0 roadmap shared via the Samsung Members Android app in Germany, as reported by GalaxyClub. The original trio of Galaxy S20-series devices is the only one planned to receive the said firmware update by the end of this month.

In fact, that rollout already began in earnest last week. Next in line for the update are the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10, and the Galaxy S10 ranges, including the Galaxy S10 Lite. The company’s foldable smartphones should also be updated in January, as per the same disclosure.

Should Samsung show more urgency with updates for 2020 Galaxy flagships?

The original Galaxy Fold is the only foldable device from Samsung not expected to move to One UI 3.0 before February. Around that time is when the same Android 11 update is expected to begin reaching select Galaxy S20 FE models as well.

Samsung’s after-sales software support is definitely showing signs of improvement compared to recent times. Yet the case of the Galaxy S20 FE still suggests there’s room for further improvement, as the company could definitely be showing more urgency with updating its latest flagships, or at least all members of a particular flagship lineup.

Be that as it may, this development serves as a decent indicator of which Galaxy smartphones sold the best over the course of this year. With the notable exception of the company’s niche foldable line, of course. You can check out the full roadmap covering the entirety of Samsung’s One UI 3.0 roadmap below.
