    Galaxy Wearable gets Android 11 support, One UI 3.0 beta release soon?

    Samsung fans are waiting for the company to open up the One UI 3.0 public beta. This would allow them to take Android 11 for a spin ahead of its general release. Samsung hasn't said when the beta will be launched but there's a sign now which suggests that the beta may not be that far off.

    Google has already been running a beta program for Android 11. Samsung tends to launch its program a few months after the fact, so it's not going to be long now before the company makes the announcement that a lot of its fans are waiting for.

    One UI 3.0 Android 11 public beta likely coming soon

    Samsung did start taking registrations for the One UI 3.0 beta last month. However, this beta program is limited to developers and only covers the Galaxy S20 series. Accessing the beta firmware right now will require an approved application from Samsung.

    A public beta is planned and will be launched in due course. Samsung has been running beta programs for the past few years so it's a matter of when not if it's going to do the same for Android 11.

    The latest update for Samsung's Galaxy Wearable app drops a hint that the beta may not be that far off. The changelog for version 2.2.33.20082161 mentions “Support R OS.” Android R is another moniker for Android 11 so clearly, this app has been updated in anticipation for the upcoming beta.

    We'll keep our ear to the ground and let you know as soon as there's more information about the One UI 3.0 beta launch. The public beta will be available for a variety of devices, including but not limited to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series.

    The next major firmware update will start rolling out globally within the year. Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy S20 series will be the first to get the Android 11 One UI 3.0 update before the end of 2020. These are all of the Samsung devices eligible for Android 11.
