Samsung is always quick to launch new phones, even if it’s not the fastest at providing software updates from them, and keeping them updated to the latest version of the Android mobile operating system.
This was highlighted once again by the company’s approach to updating its current line of phones to the latest version of Google’s latest version of the smartphone operating system, Android 11. Despite having already found a place on many of the phones of its competitors, Samsung still looks a long way from launching its Android 11-based One UI 3 software on its phones.
But a new leak has revealed that Samsung has at least plans to upgrade most of its phones in its portfolio to this new version of the operating system. According to a new leak, Samsung plans to upgrade a total of 90 devices to One UI 3. This leak comes courtesy of Twitter user @TheGalox_ and also describes the full list of these phones that will receive the One UI 3 update based on Android 11.
A quick look at the list reveals that it includes flagship devices from the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy S20 FE, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy S10 series, and Galaxy Tab S7 series.
There is also talk of devices such as Galaxy A01, Galaxy A01 Core along with a number of mid-range phones including Galaxy A40, Galaxy A30, Galaxy A80, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A90 5G and more members of the Galaxy M Series.
Once updated to this new software version, One UI 3.0 s claimed to offer 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 open and vice versa. Additionally, features like Dual Preview and Rear Cam Selfie will also be available on the Galaxy Fold with the update.
