Back in July, we started hearing about the One UI 3.0 update based on the latest Android 11 operating system. Last month, Samsung also announced the One UI 3.0 beta update for the Galaxy S20 series. Well, it’s the developer beta meaning not everyone can get their hands on it. Furthermore, it was only limited to South Korea and the US region. With that said, the next up station is going to the public beta release. Well, it might happen quite sooner than we think.
One UI 3.0 beta release based on Android 11 might happen soon!
Samsung recently rolled out a new update to its Galaxy Wearable app. The update carries the version 188.8.131.5282161. The important thing to note here is the changelog of the update that hints towards the next One UI 3.0 beta release. The changelog mentions the “Support R OS” which obviously is the alternate moniker for the Android 11 operating system. This new update suggests that Samsung might be updating its in-house apps and services to be compatible with Android 11 aka One UI 3.0.
Updating all the apps and services before rolling out the One UI 3.0 public beta release makes more sense. If that’s the case, then it is safe to assume that the announcement for the public beta release might happen anytime soon. Considering the company’s previous timeline, the public beta release for the update should happen either in the last week of September of somewhere in the month of October. Since we’re looking at the previous happenings, South Korea, the US, and Germany could be one of the first ones to receive the public beta release.
To recall, the Galaxy S20 is going to be the first lineup to get the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update. In fact, that will happen before the end of 2020.
