Samsung started beta testing its Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update a few months ago, and ever since then it's been expanding to more test devices and locations. Now the company has released official details for when the final One UI 3 release is expected to start coming to many of its handsets in markets worldwide, giving Galaxy users an idea of when to expect the upgrade on their own phones.

In an official statement released today, Samsung confirmed that the One UI 3 rollout has begun for S20 series devices in the US, Korea, and most markets in Europe. The update will slowly make it to more regions and more devices, with Samsung specifically naming the Galaxy Note20, Z Fold2, Z Flip, Note10, Fold and S10 series as being expected to receive the update in the coming weeks. The company also stated that One UI 3 will become available on Galaxy A devices "in the first half of 2021", which is consistent with an image shared on Samsung's community forum showing the international release schedule for Galaxy devices in Egypt.

Of course, this is just the estimated release schedule, and timing will vary depending on where you're located and how fast your carrier approves the OTA update. That said, these dates give us a good indication of how long we'll be waiting for One UI 3.0. While you wait, why not check out our complete list of changes to discover everything Samsung has in store.
