Samsung started rolling out the One UI 3.0 public beta update to the Galaxy S20 series in South Korea yesterday. Today, the company has extended the availability of the Android 11-based update to the US. For now, the update seems to be limited to T-Mobile users with the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or the Galaxy S20 Ultra. However, a wider rollout can be expected in a few hours.
One UI 3.0 was originally announced two months ago, but it was only limited to registered developers in South Korea and the US. Apart from Android 11, the update brings a lot of changes and improvements in the UI design. It also brings various new features, and you can have a look at the complete changelog here. We also posted screenshots of all the important aspects of the One UI 3.0 update in our previous article.
The update for the Galaxy S20 Ultra comes with firmware version G988USQU1ZTJ3 and has a download size of over 2GB. It also comes with the latest security patch (October 2020). If you want to test the public beta version of One UI 3.0 on your Galaxy S20 series device, you have to get enrolled in the program via the Samsung Members app and wait for the update to arrive.
Samsung will soon release the One UI 3.0 public beta to testers in China, Germany, India, Poland, and the United Kingdom. So, if you’re from those markets, expect the update to arrive soon. We expect the company to release the final version of One UI 3.0 by the end of 2020 or early next year.
