Samsung One UI 3.1.1: Eligible Devices, Features and Release Date
Last year, Samsung started & concluded the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update rollout for most of its eligible Galaxy devices. Later on, the company introduced a minor upgraded version called One UI 3.1 alongside the Galaxy S21 series flagships.
Following this, the Korean tech giant announced that it will deliver the new One UI 3.1 features and changes to its several compatible phones and tablets until Q3 2021. However, the company is directly bringing the 3.1 version of the One UI instead of One UI 3.0 with the Android 11 upgrade.
If we take a look at the naming strategy of Samsung’s custom software skin, we found three iterations of every One UI version including – x.0, x.1, and x.5. Though we were expecting that things will remain the same and the company will announce the 3.5 version of One UI along with its next flagship smartphones this August.
Have you received the Android 11 upgrade and your Galaxy phone or tablet is currently running the One UI 3.1? Are you waiting for the One UI 3.5 update? You might never get it as Samsung is going (reportedly) to change its tradition of One UI versions.

One UI 3.1.1 Release Date – August 11, 2021
So far, we were expected that the One UI 3.5 will be introduced with the next Galaxy flagships in August 2021. Well, the new information reveals that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is coming* with Android 11-based One UI 3.1.1 out of the box this August.
Galaxy S21 Series: As per the recent report, the Samsung Galaxy S21 series will start getting the Android 11-based One UI 3.1.1 update in late August. It’s expected that the new version will be released between August 20 and August 27.
