Samsung has been diligently following its Android 11-based One UI 3 rollout schedule and has even surprised us with a few early updates. Shortly after pushing the new software to its flagship smartphones of the last two years, the South Korean giant is now rolling out Android 11 to the Galaxy Tab S7 and the S7+. However, instead of One UI 3, the Android tablets are getting One UI 3.1, making them the only devices other than the S21 series to have it so far.
Android 11 is slowly starting to make its way to Samsung phones on US carriers, with the Verizon Galaxy S20 FE being the latest recipient. The update started hitting global S20 FE variants around a month ago, making its way stateside last week on the AT&T model. Now, it's Big Red's turn to send the OTA out.
It was only last week that Samsung started pushing out Android 11 to the Galaxy Z Fold 2. However, early adopters of the first foldable phone from the South Korean giant will be pleasantly surprised as they're also getting the One UI 3.0, and it's coming earlier than expected.
Samsung has been testing its Android 11-based One UI 3.0 software for months, and now it looks like another device is beginning to receive its official stable channel update. Owners of the 5G-enabled Galaxy Z Flip might be getting an OTA treat just in time for the holidays.
Slowly but surely, Samsung is rolling out its Android 11 update (also known as One UI 3.0) across its product lineup. In the United States, most carrier variants of the Galaxy S20 series started receiving the OS upgrade in December, and now the carrier-unlocked models are joining the party.
According to Samsung’s own release timeline, Android 11 was supposed to reach older Galaxy flagships only starting this month. But the company gave Galaxy S10 Lite owners an early treat as the One UI 3 build started rolling out a couple of days before Christmas in India. Now the update is reaching even more users, as Samsung appears to be moving towards a broader release.
Samsung's been at the top of its game when it comes to software updates lately, and most recently that's taken the shape of bringing One UI 3.0 to the Galaxy family. Hot on the heels of the Note 20 series getting a taste of Android 11, Samsung is now rolling out One UI 3.0 to the Notes of yesteryear — the Note10 and the Note10+.
Samsung has so far kept up with its rollout schedule as almost all its recent flagships have already received (or have started to receive) the latest Android 11 update. One UI 3 builds are now trickling down to the cheaper Galaxy A and M series, starting with the Galaxy A51 5G and the M31. Samsung has now opened its beta program for these two phones, and those in eligible markets can already sign up for it.
