The One UI 3 beta is the first version of Samsung's custom Android skin to run on Android 11, and over the Halloween weekend, the company has started rolling out the third version of the pre-release firmware to testers using the S20 series. It looks like it's a fairly small update with a short changelog, but that's to be expected as Samsung is getting ready to launch the new software this month.
The update comes in at roughly 650MB on the S20 series. It'll add improved camera performance on top of the usual stability improvements and bug fixes, and it comes with the November security patch. The software is currently rolling out to users in Germany.
