Samsung hasn't made an official announcement yet regarding the formal release of the Galaxy S20 One UI 3.0 update. However, it seems that the firmware is already being sent out. We saw it yesterday with Verizon as it sent out the stable One UI 3.0 update.
We are now hearing reports from a handful of countries in Europe where the update has been released. This goes to show that the public rollout is now underway. It also means that many of us will soon get the update.
Galaxy S20 One UI 3.0 update out in more countries
Samsung has started rolling out firmware version G98xxXXU5CTKG in a handful of countries across Europe. They include Germany, France, Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom and Nordic countries. This firmware update brings One UI 3.0, the latest iteration of Samsung's custom skin, and Android 11.
As previously mentioned, the company hasn't formally announced the availability of One UI 3.0 yet. That hasn't held it back from rolling out the latest firmware in these markets. The rollout appears to be too wide now to have been a mistake or someone jumping the gun.
The One UI 3.0 beta program had been going on for a couple of months. There were increasing signs that the beta program was ending and that the final release would take place soon. Samsung had itself committed that the Galaxy S20 series would receive the Android 11 One UI 3.0 update before the end of this year. Those that were running the beta firmware have now received the stable version over-the-air.
It has certainly made good on that promise. We're still about a month away from the end of this year and clearly, the One UI 3.0 update is good to go. We'll be sure to keep updating you as the Galaxy S20 One UI 3.0 update is released in more markets. You'll be able to download the official One UI 3.0 update from our firmware section very soon as well.
