Samsung may have skipped the S11 this year, but Android 11 is rolling out right on schedule. The company today announced the release of Android 11 and One UI 3.0 to its flagship phones following a short beta testing period.
In the coming weeks, users of the Galaxy Note 20, Z Fold 2, Z Flip, Note 10, Fold, and S10 families will get the update as well, while Galaxy A-series phones should have it before July 2021.
Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics said:
With Android 11, Samsung phones will have new privacy features, a refreshed notification center, new emoji, updated media controls, and so on. With One UI 3.0, Samsung will be adding extra features with updates to the camera improving zoom and autofocus on the S20. It'll also bring updates to other in-box apps including the gallery app and Bixby, and refresh the OS with sleek animations and visual flourishes here and there.
Got my update from Verizon yesterday so far one of the least major updates. A few visual and OS tweaks but overall it's exactly the same as One UI 2.5
No S20 FE? *sniff *sniff
I just picked one up and I keep hoping that AC just forgets to include it in the list or that it gets lumped in with the S20.
Impressive Android 11 is already coming when it was only released in September. The S10/Note 10 series is in January. It's a long wait if you have the Tab A8 (2019) though. That's not scheduled until September 2021. A year late.
