Samsung One UI 3.0 based on Android 11

Back in 2018 when Samsung made a switch from their Samsung Experience software overlay based on Android Oreo (8.0) to One UI based on Android Pie (9.0), the overall design and performance improvements were quite significant. One UI is well-liked by the Samsung community and here is the latest iteration based on Android 11 called One UI 3.0. As soon as Google rolled our stable Android 11 back in September, other manufacturers like Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi began the Android 11 beta program. The One Ui 3.0 beta program is over and the manufacturer just released the roadmap for the One UI 3.0 rollout stable build.

Earlier today, Verizon became the first network carrier to roll out stable One UI 3.0 update based on Android 11 for the Snapdragon variants of Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. This has left many other Samsung device owners when their Galaxy smartphone will receive Android 11 based on One UI 3.0.

Don’t worry, here we have compiled a list of all the Samsung Devices which will get One UI 3.0 update based on Android 11 along with the tentative dates for the update to roll out, directly from the Samsung Members app.
