[Updated] Samsung confirms One UI 3.0 (Android 11) Beta update is coming soon for Galaxy Note 20 series
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on October 16, 2020) follows:
Samsung’s One UI 3.0 update which is built on top of Android 11 is just around the corner. The first One UI 3.0 beta rollout started exclusively with the Galaxy S20 series initially but that is set to change with the Note 20.
If you are a proud owner of one of Samsung’s Note 20 series offerings then rejoice! The One UI 3.0 public beta builds will commence in no time.
For a quick walkthrough, One UI 3.0 promises to further refine the already near perfect One UI 2.5 Android experience by adding a few features and making some interface changes.
Some improvements include a tweaked gesture navigation system. Also there’s a cool new unique ‘resume on boot’ feature which allows the restoration to a last used app after boot-up for a more seamless experience.
UI tweaks include the absorption of latest Android features like a dedicated section for conversations and the media player, into One UI.
Other visual tweaks include homescreen, quick settings, lockscreen and AOD changes.
Getting back to the beta update for the Galaxy Note 20 series, Samsung has announced the imminent rollout of One UI 3.0 beta on its official community forum.
The above text has been translated from Korean since it is a Korean forum. This does not, however, mean that the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 One UI 3.0 beta update will be restricted to Korea alone.
Going by what went down with the S20 series One UI 3.0 public beta rollout, Korea should get the update alongside the U.S.
While there is no announced date for the rollout as of now, it is safe to assume it will be pretty soon.
The latest version of Samsung’s custom software skin debuted as a developer beta last month, giving us a good idea of what to expect. Now, it looks like a public beta is finally in full swing.
With the pace of development we’ve seen for Android 11, we expect to see an official release of One UI 3.0 for some devices soon, starting with the flagship series before trickling down to other eligible devices.
Update 1 (October 20)
Samsung has released a new update for the Galaxy Note 20 series which brings several optimizations for the device. It might be a preparatory update for the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra models which are expected to get the One UI 3.0 skin soon.
