Samsung has earned a bad rap for slowing down on Android updates, whether it’s major or monthly security fixes. This, however, may be a thing of the past and has changed a new leaf, even the commitment to three-year updates starting with this year’s flagships. Continuing that new tradition, Samsung has just expanded the reach of one of its UI 3.0 betas, bringing it to Android 11, including last year’s Galaxy Note 10.
Samsung unveiled its UI 3.0 beta program with its flagships of the year, starting with the Galaxy S20 and later adding the Galaxy Note 20 series as expected. In the past, it would have taken months for Google to release a new Android version before Samsung launched its beta program, usually around December and January. The initial launch is already a change in the behavior of a clutch but Samsung is offering more.
Samsung South Korea Announced That Android 11 update will soon arrive on its 2020 foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, as well as the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series from last year. It didn’t really take long for Samsung to bring out the beta for the Galaxy Note 10 duo. To be clear, it only covers Korean models and the beta program for these phones has not yet launched in the US.
Compared to a UII 2.0, it’s more than just a revolutionary reunion. Most of the changes focus on polishing the UI although it does include some new features such as double-tapping the screen to sleep. One UI 3.0. The full list of phones supported by is not final yet but it covers the Galaxy S, Galaxy A, and even some Galaxy M devices to be introduced from 2019.
Samsung has expanded its OneUI 3.0 beta program at a time when OnePlus is responding to its updated app for the new Nord series of mid-range phones. As the reverse goes to extremes, OnePlus has decided that it will only update phones when it comes to major Android updates, making them feel like a cheap, throwaway phone.
