Verizon revealed this morning that the Samsung Galaxy S20 series will be the first Samsung phone in the United States to receive Android 11 and Samsung’s One UI 3.0, and now the software has already begun to deceive customers. A UI 3.0 has been in public testing for the past two months, but that means the latest software has been officially released.
A UI 3.0 Android 11 has information, notification and security features, and some add-ons specific to a UI. Samsung has added easy ways to access your device, sleep on your phone by double-clicking, taking screenshots, and double-clicking on the screen, but you can check out the more endless list of all the One UI 3.0 changes. This is a round table for Android police.
In addition to the United States, the international launch of One UI 3.0 also seems to be on the rise. According to Android police, Samsung has sent a full schedule of release dates to Egyptian users, with the flagship S20 line receiving Android 11 and One UI 3.0 in December, even after the United States. According to the timeline, the phones that will receive the next update will be the Note 20, Z Fold, Note 10 and S10 phones in January 2021. The update will take a while to hit every Samsung phone you are using. Don’t expect to see the Galaxy A10, A20 or A30S before August.
When we reviewed Android 11 in September, we appreciated all of its sophisticated features in managing the complexity of modern Android phones, but we were concerned about the possibility of disintegration as Google and Samsung began to use Android once again. Samsung is known for taking a long time to release updates, just as it took five months to ship the Android Pie. But that has changed over the years, as it is better to manage the timeline. Last month’s Android 10 update took three months to make its first phone call, and we’re seeing it with Android 11 this year.
Issues such as fragmentation are important because Samsung is the world’s largest smartphone maker, as well as the largest Android phone manufacturer in the United States. This means that the widespread adoption of new features largely depends on the company’s choice to include it in the new version of One UI. At first glance, it seems that the most important components of Android 11 make it UI 3.0. But as for other Android versions of Google, Samsung may not get that much.
