Many smartphone makers have already started offering Android 11, and Samsung says the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 developer beta is now available for the Galaxy S20 family of devices. Developers can now register for the full OTA, which should arrive sometime this fall.
Samsung is currently rolling out One UI 2.5 to older devices, which means that One UI 3.0 will be in developer testing when it is fully released, which is good news. However, this may mean that current users may have to wait longer to get the latest operating system on their devices.
Samsung says the One UI beta is scheduled to be available to all users, giving them the opportunity to try out its features before the One UI is officially released. Samsung requires users to send feedback to Samsung while previewing new features and designs to help create a great experience for Galaxy users. Currently, the One Ui 3.0 beta is open for registration, but there are some considerations. First, you need to have a Galaxy S20 device, which is now only 10 for approved developers.
To help ensure that Store applications are compatible with beta software before the public test period, approved developers can participate in the pre-testing phase. The pre-test phase is open to developers in South Korea and the United States who want to test compatibility with specific service providers and device models. This phase is more a closed test of One UI 3.0 than an open test for the public, but the good news is that Samsung also mentions the so-called “public test”.
