One UI 3.0 is getting closer to a widespread public release by the day. Samsung has just released the third One UI 3.0 beta update for the Galaxy S20 series and the firmware is now being rolled out in Germany. The third One UI 3.0 beta update carries a generic changelog that mentions the usual camera and stability improvements, but it also introduces the November 2020 security patch.
As usual, the latest security patch is being rolled out without a changelog mainly for security reasons but Samsung will publish these details in the coming weeks. This release also suggests that the November 2020 security patch is ready to be deployed publicly for more smartphones running non-beta firmware. The patch debuted on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 earlier this week.
The third One UI 3.0 beta update for the Galaxy S20 series carries firmware version G98xxXXU5ZTJN and weighs a little under 650MB. If you participate in the One UI 3.0 beta program and you own the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or Galaxy S20 Ultra in Germany then you should be able to download the latest beta firmware by opening Settings on your phone, accessing Software update, and tapping Download and install.
For non-beta users, there is no exact release date in sight but Samsung is clearly working on making One UI 3.0 feasible for a public release relatively fast. The second beta firmware was released just a week ago and the third beta should be bringing One UI 3.0 closer to its widespread debut. We'll keep you posted if the third One UI 3.0 beta will be released in other markets where the beta program is available, such as the USA.
