New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on February 10, 2021) follows:
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was one of the first few phones to get the stable update to Android 11 with the One UI 3.0 skin on top.
Like most other devices from the company, the S20 FE models bagged the update ahead of Samsung’s official schedule and at present has been made available to users across the globe.
One UI 3.0 brings a host of improvements and new features to the device including a revamped user interface.
However, even though it has only been a couple of months since becoming available for the public, One UI 3.0 isn’t the latest skin Samsung has to offer.
That title has now been taken over by the One UI 3.1 skin that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S21 series. And up until now, was only released for the Tab S7 series.
But that has changed since the South Korean giant has finally begun seeding the One UI 3.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G.
The update is rolling out in the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Poland, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Romania, Switzerland, and a few other European countries as per SamMobile’s database.
It bears the firmware version number G781BXXU2CUB5 and also brings along the February security patch.
