Samsung is staying true to its word and releasing its One UI 3.0 update – which is based on Google’s Android 11 – at a rapid pace. The Korean firm is already well ahead of schedule with devices such as the Galaxy A50 getting this feature-packed upgrade much earlier than first expected.
Now another device appears to be in luck with reports surfacing that the Galaxy A21 has begun receiving the changes. If true, it means this rollout is a whole two months ahead of schedule with these cheaper devices not expected to get One UI 3.0 until May at the earliest.
According to the ever-reliable team at SamMobile, it appears that owners in Korea are the first to get this upgrade but it’s likely that a full rollout will come soon.
It’s easy to check if your device is ready to be upgraded. Simply go to Settings > Software Update. Then check to see if One UI 3.0 is available. If it appears, select the update and tap Download and Install.
One thing to note is if your phone is on a contract from a network then things can take a little longer to appear. That’s because the software often needs to be tested by each carrier before it’s released to customers.
Speaking about One UI 3.0, Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications, said: “The launch of One UI 3 is just the beginning of our commitment to offering Galaxy consumers the best mobile experiences possible by giving them access to the latest OS innovation, as soon as it’s available.
“One UI 3 represents an integral part of our mission to continually create new innovative and intuitive experiences for our consumers throughout their device lifecycle. So when you have a Galaxy device, you have a gateway to new, unimagined experiences for years to come.”• Samsung Galaxy M21
