Android 11-based Samsung One UI 3.0 is finally available
The early access program is over and One UI 3.0 is finally rolling out to select Galaxy devices in many countries, although we cannot talk about a "global" rollout yet. Yesterday, the new Android 11-based firmware has begun to hit Galaxy S20 series devices in South Korea, the US, and most European markets.
The next devices to receive the update include Galaxy Note20, Z Fold2, Z Flip, Note10, Fold and S10 series, which should all get One UI 3.0 in the coming weeks. Samsung Galaxy A users will have to wait for a few months as their handsets are scheduled to have their software refreshed in the first half of next year.
The highlights of the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 include new visual effects, overhauled home and lock screens, notification and Quick Panel, improved AI-based zoom on photos, as well as enhanced autofocus and auto-exposure, a more flexible interface that is easier to customize than ever before, and more.
According to Samsung, One UI will get more updates in early 2021 with the occasion of the upcoming flagship launches. For now, those who did not get the update yet and think that they should have must keep in mind that the upgrade schedule depends on multiple factors, including their handset model, the network they use, and so on.
