Samsung held its first-ever virtual Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event last Wednesday. It revealed its new and upgraded smartphones, tablets, and cool wearables. However, it gave its last resort two hours after the event announcing an update for Galaxy S20.
The South Korean giant announced that they opened the registrations for the users to access the One UI 3.0 developer beta version update. Users will not have direct access to the pre-beta phase update without applying for approval to Samsung.
Since it is still in the beta phase, Samsung needs to propose approval to test if the essential apps are working fine until its final version of the One UI 3.0 update.
However, the update will be available first for users in South Korea and the United States. Then, it will soon apply for registered users of India, Germany, Poland, the UK, and China.
In the developer beta program, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra’s Sprint and T- Mobile variants are also included. The compatibility of the One UI 3.0 update is also available for both 5G and LTE series of Galaxy S20 smartphones.
Speaking of updates, Samsung committed to three “generations” Android updates for its series devices such as Galaxy Z, Galaxy Note, and Galaxy S.
However, the three “generation” commitment is not for all its devices. The Android OS update will be applicable from the Galaxy S10 and probably its flagship devices. According to The Verge, Samsung has clarified that the upgrades apply to “S, N, and Z series, A Series will support until hardware allows.” All other Samsung mobile devices remained to have two major Android OS updates.
“Availability of feature and security updates may vary by device and country. Update supported for flagship models from Galaxy S10 or later,” mentioned during the live stream.
