Well, Samsung has now opened up the public beta registration in the US for both Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. As you might have guessed already, you can apply for the public beta program via the Samsung Members app.

The all-new One UI 3.0 beta update is now available for Sprint, T-Mobile, and unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 20 duo. To register for the update, all you need to do is open up the Samsung Members app and tap on the One UI Beta program banner. Soon after, you will be able to download the update via Software Update. To do that, you can head over to Settings>>Software Update>>Download and Install. With that done, you will now be able to experience the Android 11 operating system on your smartphone.
The One UI 3.0 beta update in the US carries the firmware version N986U1UEU1ZTJG. Apart from bringing the latest Android 11, the update also comes with the October 2020 Android security patch.
