- Samsung has announced a beta program for Android 11 based on UI 3.0.
- It is currently only available to developers using Galaxy S20 series phones.
- Public processes for One UI 3.0 are also expected to start soon.
Samsung has just launched Galaxy Note 20 phones with the latest One UI 2.5 software. While the company has not announced details on a larger implementation for One UI 2.5, it has opened a beta program for One UI 3.0 based on Android 11.
A UI 3.0 for the Galaxy S20 series is currently in pre-beta (h / t: XDA-Developers). It is currently only available to developers in the United States and South Korea. Samsung says it wants developers to make sure their apps are compatible with the latest beta software before opening it to the public. This is why access to the beta program will require Samsung’s approval at this time and regular Galaxy S20 users will still not be able to install One UI 3.0.
When public trials open, all users of One UI beta in China, India, the United States, the United Kingdom, Poland, South Korea and Germany will be able to test the new software.
Currently, both the LTE and 5G variants of the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra are eligible to receive the One UI 3.0 beta update in the United States. Samsung also included both unlocked and Sprint / T-Mobile Galaxy S20 models in the trial version.
