Even as rival phone makers are busy updating their phones to Android 11, Samsung has reportedly made the decision to postpone the release of the One UI 3 beta program on some of its major phones. The company that had plans to test phones like Galaxy S10, S10 +, S10e, Z Flip 5G, Z Fold 2, among others, with beta versions of the One UI 3 software based on Android 11, has now decided to postpone the launch. update.
The information comes courtesy of Tizenhelp (via Sammobile), who says a Beta Operation Manager informed them of the decision on Samsung’s South Korean community forums. The post explains that Samsung is currently working to fix the issues in the One UI 3.0 beta update for Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+. The post also says that as a result, Samsung has postponed plans for a larger beta version of the operating system and plans to wait until stabilization work is completed to some extent.
In the report, the main reason for this delay was cited as a battery drain issue experienced by Galaxy Note 10 series devices after updating to the beta version of One UI 3 software. Apart from this, users also complained of app crashes.
The One UI 3 software was first displayed by Samsung on August 5th. At the time, the company listed some key features of the Android 11-based software. Samsung claims that once updated to this new software version, One UI 3.0 s will bring a “simpler and more convenient experience” and will come with new features such as a quick panel, which will allow users to switch between music and videos. There will also be a new notification panel that will provide users with more information while the phone is locked. And the new update will add support for full screen calls.
Additionally, One UI 3 will also be optimized for the company’s foldable phones, including the Galaxy Z Fold 2 which will allow it to fit on the main screen when it’s open and vice versa. Additionally, features like dual preview and rear camera selfie will also be available on the Galaxy Fold with the update.
While the feature list sounds interesting, the fact that the update could take months to finally find a spot on some of the top phones in the company’s line-up is a bit of a disappointment. This becomes particularly frustrating when you consider the fact that companies like OnePlus and Vivo have already rolled out Android 11-based updates to some of their phones and seem close to updating the rest of their phones with the new update.
