Samsung Android 11 Update with One UI 3.0: Everything You Need to Know

Ever since Samsung changed their UI to One UI, they have been quite punctual with the yearly Android updates. It has only been a few months since Google launched Android 10, and one of the first OEMs to work on top of it, customize it to their own, and then release it was Samsung. The time frame that Samsung took to launch its version of Android 10 is commendable. It was called the One UI 2.0, and Samsung initially rolled it out to the Galaxy S10 trio towards the end of November.

We now already have the Android 11. Compared to earlier years, this is a much sooner release, even for the preview version. Now, Samsung fans out there have already started to wonder what new changes will come in the next version of One UI ever since the Android 11 got out. Samsung is one of the first OEMs to offer Android 11 for their devices. So, let’s look at what Samsung has brought with their next-generation One UI, i.e., One UI 3.0.

What is One UI 3.0?

  • One UI 3.0 is Samsung’s upcoming custom skin based on the Android 11 operating system.

One UI is Samsung’s take on Google’s Android. It debuted back in 2018 with Android Pie in its heart. It had all the features of Android Pie with some additional bonus features from Samsung. Overall, it was a long-awaited change from Samsung that every Samsung user appreciated. In 2019, the next version of One UI, One UI 2.0, was launched with Android 10. It didn’t disappoint to please its users this time, too. One UI 2.0 was launched first for the Samsung Galaxy S10 in November 2019 and has made its way into several Samsung premium and even budget and non-premium devices.

Now, with the launch of Stable Android 11, Samsung will carry on its tradition and launch the One UI 3.0 on top of Android 11. We don’t know when Samsung will launch stable One UI 3.0. As of now, the One UI 3.0 developer beta program has been announced.

When will your Samsung phone get Android 11 update?

  • The stable Android 11 update with One UI 3.0 for Samsung devices is expected to be released in October 2020.

Samsung took a bit of time before releasing their One UI after Google’s official Android launch. Even in the previous release, we saw a delay with the release of the stable version. Usually, it’s the end of the year when Samsung officially launches the next version, but this time around, things might just change. Unlike previous years, Google has launched its final version of Android 11 much sooner than it did with Android 10 or Android 9. So, we can expect Samsung to follow this trend of Google and come up with a stable version of One UI 3.0 much sooner than usual.

The smartphone industry is very competitive right now, and many OEMs are keen on being one of the first companies to launch their latest UI version. So, looking at Google’s early launch, many OEMs will probably plan to work on their UIs as soon as possible. So, if Samsung wants to maintain its place in the premium smartphone market, it will have to compete, too. Now, if all goes well, then Samsung will also launch One UI 3.0 one or two months earlier than last year. In the previous year, it took five weeks before the stable version of One UI 2.0 rolled out after the beta version. So, as per calculations, we will have the public open beta launch somewhere around September and the official stable version launch in October.

Please note that the above unofficial list is prepared based on the company’s previous track record. 

Samsung has a trend in rolling out updates on their devices. Firstly, their top-tier Note and S series devices will receive the update. Following them would be the previous year’s flagship S and Note series devices. And then, finally, we will have the mid-range and upper mid-range series devices receiving the update.

Samsung has followed the same tradition this time around, too, and we have seen the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 rolled out to the S20, S20+, and S20 ultra devices. The Note 20 lineup for 2020 has also recently been announced. And as soon as the S20 series receives the public beta update, the Note device will also do so.

Following on will be 2019’s flagship S10 series devices and Note 10. Once they are updated, then Samsung will start pushing the Android 11 to the M series and A series devices that are eligible for the update. Unfortunately, this is the end of the line for the beloved Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note 9 because they have already received two major Android updates(Android 9 and 10).

These Samsung devices may not receive the Android 11 update

  • Galaxy S9
  • Galaxy S9+
  • Galaxy Note 9
  • Galaxy J2 Core
  • Galaxy J2 Pro
  • Galaxy J3
  • Galaxy J4 Core

  • Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 (2018)
  • Galaxy Tab S4 10.5 (2018)
  • Galaxy M01 Core

Samsung devices only receive two major OS updates. That means if your phone arrived with Android 9, Android 11 would be the last major platform update that it receives. So, all the devices running Android Oreo or Older OS are not eligible(technically) for the Android 11 update. However, some devices also receive a single major update only. So, based on this theory, we have prepared the above unofficial list. Take this list with a pinch of salt.
