Against its tradition, Samsung won’t launch new Galaxy Note series phones in the second half of this year and postponed them to the coming year. Although the company introduces a newer version of One UI along with its new Note phones, then what about the next version of the Android 11-based One UI 3?
Though the company is not introducing the Galaxy Note 21 series this year, it will surely unveil its next-generation folding smartphone that could be the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2. These devices are likely to equip several futuristic technologies and upgrades over the previous generations.
However, we are months away from the expected Galaxy Unpacked, but the session of leaks and rumors regarding the next foldable is spreading rapidly. And now a piece of new information has recently arrived on this matter as our folks over SamMobile revealed major data about the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung’s future plans in the firmware section.
According to the latest, Samsung has started the development of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 firmware. Still, the company has too much time to impressively growing several iconic features that will be a part of the One UI 3.5 and exclusively come pre-installed with the next Galaxy foldable.
It is important to remind you that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 carries model number SM-F926. At the same time, it will feature at least 256GB of internal storage. Moreover, it was said that this handset will sport a slightly small outward display compared to its predecessor.
Also, earlier today, we’ve reported that the company is reducing the battery capacity of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 to bring it S Pen support. As of now, we suggest you take this information as a pinch of salt as we are waiting to get an official confirmation from Samsung about the next Galaxy Unpacked where it will launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2.

BREAKING: One UI 3.5 is not coming? Samsung to release One UI 3.1.1 instead
Just recently, well-known tipster IceUniverse revealed that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come with the so-called One UI 3.1.1 version, however, it was expected to run the One UI 3.5 based on Android 11.
If this leak is correct, then we will see a truly new One UI version, One UI 3.1.1 that could be really a minor upgrade over One UI 3.1. Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 series with the One UI 2.5 that was rolled out to several Galaxy phones.
If we take a look at the naming strategy of Samsung for its custom skin, we found that it had introduced total of three iterations of previous One UIs including:
- One UI 1.0
- One UI 1.1
- One UI 1.5
- One UI 2.0
- One UI 2.1
- One UI 2.5
Following the same habit, the Korean tech giant launched the One UI version 3.0 based on Android 11, followed by One UI 3.1. Though, the Galaxy S21 series exclusively comes with the 3.5 version of One UI out of the box.
However, IceUniverse is a famous tipster that exposes authentic data from the tech industry. If Samsung does the same, then there will be a unique One UI variant called One UI 3.1.1 instead of the most expected One UI 3.5.
