Do you have an interest in knowing about the release date of the beta update for the Galaxy S20 series? If yes, here’s what we know about it below.
One UI 3.0 (Android 11) beta update for Galaxy S20
Last month, Samsung opened registration for the closed developer beta version of One UI 3.0 Android 11 update. Initially, registration for the beta program kick-started in South Korea. However, it has now commenced in the US as well, with many developers already registering for the new update. Since the registration is for a closed beta program, it means the One UI 3.0 Android 11 update won’t offer all the new features that Samsung has in mind.
According to the report, the new update will be available for the Samsung Galaxy S20 users first. For now, there’s no official statement yet as to the release date of the new update for Galaxy S20 devices. However, the beta manager revealed that it’ll likely start rolling to users in South Korea, the US, and a few EU countries, pretty soon – probably in the coming weeks.
