Before some days, we reported that the public beta program of the new One UI 3.0 based on Android 11 operating system will begin soon and is expected to be rolling out in mid-to-late October for the Galaxy S20 series. The beta version is already available for developers.
Recently, the Samsung Beta manager in South Korea has confirmed that the One UI 3.0 beta based on Android 11 is coming soon for the Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra 5G (unlocked device). The Beta Manager also mentioned that the official launch date and download link will available on the Samsung Member app soon.
We expect that the US and European countries could also receive it along with Korean users. Last year, the beta testing was started for the Galaxy S10 users in South Korea and later unrolled in the US and Germany.
The One UI 3 Beta Program is an opportunity to try One UI features before its official release. You will have to join the One UI 3.0 beta program through the Samsung Members app or Galaxy community. It may cause some malfunctions also some functions may not be available.
