One UI 3.0 based on Samsung’s Android 11 started rolling out earlier this year, with its improved UI elements and a more modern look. Some of the newer devices, of course, were ahead of everyone else, but now the Korean OEM is expanding the update to the other light-order devices, including Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 series in the US. Android 11 / One UI 3.0 for the latter was pulled after its initial release for a week, but then the stable version rollout was resumed.
The Galaxy Fold will receive the update that brings the firmware version F900U1UEU4DUA3 and along with it the One UI 3.0 interface. This will actually be the second and penultimate major update for the device that launched in 2019 and had Android 9 working out of the box. SAM Mobile says That the device is set up for one more major Android update, though we’ll probably have to wait a while for Android 12 so that users can enjoy Android 11 for the next 10 months or so.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 series in the US will finally be able to join the devices that are running on One UI 3.0, months after its initial launch in Europe. The unspecified issues that the initial launch experienced have been (hopefully) fixed this time around and therefore Galaxy S10 owners will now be able to enjoy the new look they can get from the updated interface. Firmware version G97xU1UEU4FUA4 has started rolling out on the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 +, and Galaxy S10e.
As for what to expect with One UI 3.0, you’ll get a more modern look for the entire user interface, as well as the first-party apps that Samsung offers. It optimizes ease of access and ease of use, especially for those who prefer to use their large mobile screens with one hand. Many of the items are now easier to reach and read. There are also new alert and notification options, new lock screen features, and more.
You can check the firmware updates for your devices, if you own a Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10, by going to Settings> Software Update> Download and install. You can also install the update on your phone using your computer by searching for the firmware update.
