PSA: Samsung’s Android 11-based One UI 3.0 public beta for the Galaxy S20 Series is live

Galaxy S20 owners in South Korea woke up to a tasty treat this morning in the form of the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 beta program that has just gone live in the region. After a closed beta aimed at helping developers prepare their apps for the new version of Samsung’s One UI, the public release has been hotly anticipated.

According to the XDA, a post in the Samsung Members app says that the One UI 3.0 beta program is open to the Galaxy S20 line-up with the first firmware carrying build number ZTJ3. While it’s prudent to presume that the Galaxy S20 line-up consists of the S20, S20 Plus, and the S20 Ultra, it’s unknown whether the newly-launched Galaxy S20 FE is also eligible to sign up for the beta.

For the moment, the Android 11/One UI 3.0 public beta is open to users in South Korea but it’s expected to roll out in the US and Europe in the coming days. When it does, you’ll need to sign in with your Samsung account. Besides the Galaxy S20 series, we should also also see the Galaxy Note 20 range added to the beta program at some point.

The beta firmware will include new features and cosmetic changes, along with the usual under-the-hood tweaks. If you have one of the eligible handsets, are you planning on signing up for the Android 11/One UI 3.0 beta program when it opens up in your country?
