Android 11 just launched, and many of us are looking forward to getting it on our phones. Eyes are on all popular OEMs, like Samsung, to see when they will begin rolling out updates. Matter of fact, the Korean OEM kicked off the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 developer beta program for the Galaxy S20 series over a month ago. While the limited beta rollout is just getting started, we’ve known that the company has been testing internal builds of the next iteration of One UI based on Android 11 for a few days now.

This is One UI 3.0 (Beta) on the Galaxy S20 – Samsung’s Android 11 update!

Samsung has yet to announce an official list of eligible Galaxy devices to get the Android 11 update, but it is expected that the current generation flagship series will receive their stable OTAs before the end of the year. A public beta phase before the actual stable rollout for some of these devices should be right around the corner. This article will serve as the central repository of download links for all Samsung devices that have received their official Android 11 updates in the form of One UI 3.0, including both the public beta and the stable builds.

When it comes to regional preference, Samsung has a history of testing new beta updates with customers in its home country of South Korea first. The public beta program (usually conducted through the Samsung Members app) eventually makes its way to other regions, so users are advised to check the schedule for their region by opening the app and heading to the ‘Notices’ section.


List of Samsung devices that have received stable Android 11

This article covers Samsung devices that have received a stable Android 11 update—be it (public) beta or stable—in any region. It is worth mentioning that you can’t cross-flash a firmware that is intended for a Snapdragon Samsung Galaxy phone on its Exynos variant (or vice-versa).

Here are the devices that currently have an Android 11 build based on the stable Android branch available. Note that the devices are sorted alphabetically for their retail name.

  1. Samsung Galaxy S20 (x1s/x1q) — Added on 09/15/2020
