Samsung has no plans to begin public testing of Android 11 before Google releases a stable version of the operating system for Pixel smartphones. This was reported by the Internet edition SamMobile. There is also evidence that Samsung has already begun developing firmware based on the latest operating system for the current flagship models. This is written by user XDA-Developers, who found references to the new OS in the latest firmware for the S20 Ultra.
Last year, stable Android 10 was made available to the general public in early September. In turn, Samsung launched a beta testing program for the operating system for Galaxy S10 users only in mid-October. According to available data, a similar situation will happen again this year.
Android 11-based firmware will reportedly include One UI 3.0. Recall that the current version of the shell is One UI 2.1, and the release of One UI 2.5 is expected on August 5, along with the presentation of the Galaxy Note 20 smartphones. This version of the interface is expected to bring advertising to the standard applications of the company’s budget devices. We also wrote earlier that Samsung will release One UI 2.5 for Galaxy S20 smartphones in the foreseeable future.
It is likely that One UI 3.0 will only be available on flagship models this year, while more affordable devices will be content with One UI 2.5.
