In what has been the fastest release yet of any major Android OS update by Samsung for its flagships, the Galaxy S20 series started receiving the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update this week. The update is rolling out across many European countries and is going to make its way to the US and South Korea starting today as well, with more markets to follow in the coming weeks. But while Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra owners are elated right now, Galaxy S20 FE owners are still in the dark about when they can expect to get One UI 3.0.
Galaxy S20 FE One UI 3.0 update coming before 2020 is over?
Samsung hasn’t officially said anything about its plans to update the Galaxy S20 FE to Android 11, and the amazing value flagship was also not included in the One UI 3.0 beta program that has been going on for the last couple of weeks. But that may not mean that Samsung is going to make Galaxy S20 FE owners wait a long while. According to Max Weinbach, the Fan Edition variant of the Galaxy S20 could get the One UI 3.0 update on December 27, or just a few weeks from now and a couple of days before this eventful year draws to a close.
Weinbach also says that the Galaxy Note 20 series could get its public Android 11 and One UI 3.0 update on December 14th. Now, it has to be noted that these dates are not set in stone and are only estimates according to Weinbach, but in the case of the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, a December 14th release sounds entirely plausible. Or, at the very least, a release before the updates makes landfall on the Galaxy S20 FE, though nothing is set in stone at the moment.
