Galaxy S10 is receiving latest One UI 3.0 update globally


Galaxy S10

Not long ago, Samsung started to roll out the stable Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update for its Galaxy S10 devices in certain regions. Today, a wider rollout is happening for all units of the handset in India, Europe, and Africa. So far, Samsung has been doing a stellar job in keeping its devices updated. The company’s new update strategy has nothing to do with the past days of Touchwiz. In the past, Samsung played a big role in the Android fragmentation problem, now it seems to be addressing this issue with constant updates. In fact, the newer Galaxy flagships are set to receive three major Android updates.

As far as the Galaxy S10 is concerned, it is receiving the Android 11 update with the G973FXXU9ETLJ build number. The firmware file size is around 2GB. So it’s quite a massive update, so make sure to download it on a Wi-Fi connection to avoid issues with your Data plans. The update brings the whole set of One UI 3.0 enhancements. It includes a revamped UI, better usability for the available features, refined quick panel, and more. The firmware also brings all the goodies introduced with Android 11. The list includes one time permissions for apps, organized notifications, and notification bubbles support. The update also has December 2020 security patch in tow.

The new handset is getting the One UI 3.0 update in a phased manner. It may take a couple of days to reach all eligible units. Alternatively, users can manually check for the update via the Settings >> Software updates >> Check for updates menu.

One UI 3.1 is coming soon for some Samsung devices

Just like the last year, Samsung unveiled a new incremental update for One UI within the newer Galaxy flagships. The Galaxy S21 series comes with One UI 3.1 straight out of the box. According to a report, the update will reach up to 15 recent smartphones, among them we have:

  • Galaxy Note 20
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
  • Galaxy-Z Fold 2
  • Galaxy Z Flip
  • Galaxy S20 FE
  • Galaxy-S20
  • Galaxy S20 +
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy-Fold
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy-S10 +
  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy-Note 10 Lite

Just like the list shows, the new incremental update will reach a select list of smartphones. We don’t expect many of the mid-range phones that are waiting for One UI 3.0 to receive it. Of course, newer smartphones probably will pack One UI 3.1.
