Samsung had unveiled the One UI 3.0 update based on Android 11 for the Galaxy S20 series two months ago. The developer beta of One UI 3.0 was released earlier this month and the UI design changes and all new features were also revealed. The company has now announced that it will soon release the public beta of One UI 3.0 for the Galaxy S20 series.
The beta operations community manager revealed through a post in the Samsung member community that the beta One UI 3.0 will soon be available for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 + and Galaxy S20 Ultra in South Korea. Interested users can sign up for the program via Samsung Members app. The official launch date and download link will be revealed via the app, so if you don’t already have the Samsung Members app, it’s time to install it and have your device ready.
At the moment, the release plan has only been unveiled for South Korea, but we believe the beta program will subsequently be open to users in other markets such as Germany, India and the US. Once the One UI 3.0 beta update for the Galaxy S20 series is released, Samsung may also release a similar program for the Galaxy Note 20 series in the future.
