The One UI 3.1 update for the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is now once again rolling out to select variants of this budget flagship. As a reminder, Samsung pulled the original update from the deployment queue at this time last week. The Galaxy S20 FE 5G was actually the first smartphone that started transitioning to the latest version of Samsung’s in-house OS based on Android 11.

While that turn of events was too good to be true in the end, this revision is still very much early to the One UI 3.1 party. It might have even been too early last time around.

Why did Samsung pull the original Galaxy S20 FE update to begin with?

Namely, the One UI 3.1 OTA is designated as the release version G781BXXU2CUB5. The main implication of that label is that the original firmware wasn’t pulled due to any technical issues – this is still the same package as before. The overall download size hence remains hefty, at over 1.7GB. Meaning it would be a good idea to pay attention to your battery and only trigger the installation once you’re in a range of a reliable Wi-Fi connection.

Like the aforementioned build number suggests, this OTA is specifically targeting the 5G-ready version of the Galaxy S20 FE (SM-G781B). Its LTE-only counterpart (SM-G780F) is expected to follow shortly, as well. And anyone lacking patience for this release is also welcome to stay on top of our firmware archives. As things stand right now, this second deployment is originating from Central Europe outward. The Galaxy S20 series and most other contemporary flagships from Samsung have been receiving the same update since yesterday, as well.
