Here’s when your Samsung Galaxy phone may get the One UI 3.0 (Android 11) update

Android 11 is the newest version of Android. While the update has rolled out to a bunch of smartphones, phones that come with heavier UX skins need to wait for a longer time for the update to reach them. Samsung’s One UI 3.0 update is based on Android 11, and so far, the update has largely been restricted to flagship S series, Note series, and Fold series. If you are wondering when will your Samsung Galaxy smartphone get One UI 3.0 based on Android, here’s when it will receive its update.

Samsung has not publicly posted an update timeline for its Galaxy smartphones, but a list has been posted in the Samsung Members app for users in Egypt (via TizenHelp). This list may be talking about the update in the context of that region, but we can get a rough idea of the general timeline on when different phones will be getting their update. So far, Samsung has rolled out One UI 3.0 betas for the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Z Fold 2.

According to the list, here is the update timeline for stable releases:

  • September 2021:

As is apparent, the update timeline mentioned within the Samsung Members app prioritizes the devices that already have a Beta update available in some form. The update lands on Samsung’s mid-range and budget range not before March 2021, which is a little disappointing. The update timeline also stretches all the way to September 2021, which is about a month before the next Android release is expected in stable form. Also, keep in mind that the wording used in the announcement on the Samsung Members app is “Preparing in …”, and not “Rolling out”, which leaves room open for any unexpected delays. While you wait for the update to arrive, check out the features that Samsung has in store for you, and the general update changelog.
