Samsung had unveiled the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update for the Galaxy S20 series two months ago. The developer beta version of One UI 3.0 was released earlier this month, and the UI design changes and all the new features were revealed as well. The company has now announced that it will soon release the public beta version of One UI 3.0 for the Galaxy S20 series.

The community manager of beta operations revealed through a post in the Samsung Members community that the One UI 3.0 beta version is coming soon for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra in South Korea. Interested users can sign up for the program via the Samsung Members app. The official launch date and the download link will be unveiled via the app, so if you don’t have the Samsung Members app already, it’s time to install it and keep your device ready.

Right now, the release plan has only been unveiled for South Korea, but we believe that the beta program will subsequently be open for users in other markets like Germany, India, and the US. Once the One UI 3.0 beta update is released for the Galaxy S20 series, Samsung could also release a similar program for the Galaxy Note 20 series in the future. You can view the official changelog for the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update here.

One UI 3.0 features

One UI 3.0 brings camera improvements, including better autofocus and stabilization, to the Galaxy S20 series. Other features include a trash bin feature for messages, the ability to delete duplicate contacts, call screen customization. Improved Calendar and Reminders apps are also a part of the package. Samsung has also added weekly trends for Digital Wellbeing and separate profiles for work and personal profiles. Time spent on calls while driving and a lock screen widget is also available in One UI 3.0.

Long pressing an app’s icon lets users add an associated widget to the home screen. The screen can be locked by double-tapping an empty area on the home screen. Android 11 features like conversation sections in the notifications area, chat bubbles, and media playback widget are also present in One UI 3.0. A new version of Samsung Internet with several new add-ons and improvements to Samsung Keyboard and Wireless DeX are among the other new features.
