Talking of specifics, the One UI 3.0 brings a redesigned notification panel/quick settings, the restructures that have been made to the Settings menu and there are several other subtle tweaks in the UX that will surely catch your attention.
But Samsung is currently testing the One UI 3.0 under the beta program and eligible devices including Samsung Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series have already received a number of new Beta builds after their enrollment in different markets.
Following these new flagships, Samsung also started the One UI 3.0 beta program for Galaxy S10, Note 10, Fold, and Flip series. However, the South Korean tech giant had to put a halt on beta rollout for some of the S10 and Note 10 devices due to some issues but it’ll be resumed very soon.

Samsung is yet to rollout the stable One UI 3.0 for Samsung smartphones and according to current testing progress, it may take a few weeks for the company to provide a stable version.
According to previous reports, Samsung has planned to launch its next S-series flagship by January 2021, which is almost a month and a half earlier than the usual release. According to observers, there are plenty of reasons why Samsung is rushing-in to get the launch done ahead of any other previous launches.
Since the launch of the One UI (Check history here), Samsung launches at least two step-up versions of One UI software after announcing a major release.
One UI 2.0 (based on Android 10)
One UI 2.1 (based on Android 10) – Galaxy S20 series
One UI 2.5 (based on Android 10) – Galaxy Note 20 series
Looking back at the tradition, Samsung launches the One UI beta program after the release of the new Android version, then it introduces the First Step-up version with S-series models and then the second Step-up version with Note-series models.
2021 won’t be different for One UI 3.x version but the devices that receive its third iteration may be changed. Because there are some serious implications that Samsung may drop its Galaxy Note-series and in 2021 it’ll be replaced by the Galaxy Fold series but nothing is certain at the moment.
One UI 3.0 (based on Android 11)
One UI 3.1 (based on Android 11) – Galaxy S21 series
One UI 3.5 (based on Android 11) – Galaxy Note 21/Fold series
By the end of 2021, Samsung likely to reiterate the same schedule after the One UI 4.x (tentative name) based on Android 12. This discussion is for another day.
As for now, there’s no information available about its rollout or eligible devices, nor for its features. However, One UI 3.1 likely to improve some of the cameras features such as Moon mode, night mode, and Electronic Image stabilization (EIS). There’s more to come.
