Samsung One UI 3 with Android 11 available as beta, some phones may get update this year

Samsung announced the public beta of OneUI 3.0 based on Android 11 shortly after launching the software developer beta program. However, it is only available to a limited number of users for now, with only the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 FE supporting it now.

For now, reports suggest that the update is only available to affected users in South Korea, while users in other regions are not yet receiving it. Although there is no confirmation, the public beta may also be made available for Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

The update, for now, can be carried over by interested users who wish to try the latest Android 11 based One UI 3.0 on their supported Samsung phones. Eligible users can sign up for the beta update by going to the “Join the One UI beta program” section in the Samsung Members app. With One UI 3.0, Samsung is making several improvements separate from the new Android 11 features.

In terms of functionality, the update will bring important improvements to widgets for the lock screen and always-on display. We will also be adding more categories to the dynamic lock screen feature. Apart from these, there will also be a number of other features. However, there is no guarantee that they will be in a publicly released version of the software. To find out, however, we will have to wait a few more weeks at least for the launch of the update in India.

To remind our readers, Android 11 was released by Google a few weeks ago and has since slowly begun to make its way onto phones across the board. Android 11 offers a number of new features including Bubbles. This feature helps users in multi-tasking. Bubbles float over the apps you are using and if you get an important message you won’t have to leave your app to reply to the message. You can just tap on the balloon and reply there.

Another cool feature that Android 11 brings with it is the built-in screen recorder. This allows users to capture and share everything they are watching or doing on their phones with their friends. Users will be able to record whatever they want without the need for an additional screen recording app.
