Samsung officially launches Android 11 for the Galaxy S20 devices

Verizon revealed that Samsung’s Galaxy S20 lineup will be the first of the company’s phones to receive Android 11 through the One UI 3.0 user interface in the United States.

The update has now started to reach customers, and the One UI 3.0 user interface has been in public beta for the past two months, but it has now officially arrived.

The One UI 3.0 user interface includes many messaging, notification and security features for Android 11, along with some additional functions for the One UI.

Samsung added easier ways to access tools, take screenshots, and double-tap across the screen to put your phone to sleep.

The international launch of the One UI 3.0 user interface also appears to have started outside the US, and Samsung has sent a full schedule of release dates for users in Egypt, so that the flagship Galaxy S20 lineup receives Android 11 via One UI 3.0 sometime in December.

According to the schedule, the upcoming phones to receive the update will be the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 phones in January 2021.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip foldable will also get One UI 3.0 by then, but the original Galaxy Fold will have to wait until February.

It takes a while for the update to reach every Samsung phone it supports, but don’t expect to see it on the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, or Galaxy A30S before August.

Android 11 includes many features to manage the complexity of modern Android phones, but there is the problem of fragmentation, as Google and Samsung have begun to converge again on how to deal with Android.

Samsung is known for taking a long time to release updates, as it took them five months to send Android 9.

Samsung tried to change this over the years, as it became better at managing its schedule, and it took three months to update Android 10 to reach the first phones, and Android 11 update is on the right track.

Problems such as retail are important because Samsung is the major global phone manufacturer and the major sales company for Android phones in the United States.

This means that the widespread adoption of new features depends largely on the company’s choice to include them in new versions of One UI.
