Back in July, we started hearing about the fact that Samsung is working on an Android 11 for its latest Galaxy S20 trio. Earlier this month, the Galaxy S20+ appeared on GeekBench with the latest Android 11 operating system. Well, the Plus variant of the lineup has now once again surfaced on the web with the newer Android OS. This time the listing appeared on the HTML5test benchmark. The new development has further solidified that the brand is working on Android 11 for its Galaxy S20 lineup.
For those who’re unaware, the Galaxy S20 trio is going to be the first one to receive the newer Android operating system. The new Android version should arrive with One UI 3 on top. It would be interesting to see what the new One UI version will bring to the table. The newer benchmark has also mentioned the Samsung Internet 13.0 which hasn’t made public as of now. This means that we will see a new Samsung Internet 13.0 will also arrive with the newer Android 11.
To recall, Samsung recently rolled out the latest Samsung Internet 18.104.22.168 with new features such as improved dark mode. The listing doesn’t really talk about the features for the 13.0 of the company’s own browser. In the HTML5test, the smartphone managed to score 469 points out of the maximum 555 points.
Samsung has already kicked off its Android 11 One UI 3.0 pre-beta phase!
Earlier this month, Samsung kicked off its closed beta phase of the upcoming One UI 3.0 with the Android 11 operating system on top. As a part of this pre-beta phase, a small number of applicants in South Korea and the USA were able to register for testing the software. The brand will kickstart a more open beta phase once the pre-beta phase successfully completes.
As of now, there is no official timeline from the smartphone maker regarding when the open beta will kickstart. Considering previous timelines, we should expect the open beta program to kick off somewhere in the month of October. The public beta should be available in major markets such as China, the US, UK, India, Poland, South Korean, and Germany. The Galaxy S20 trio and Galaxy Note 20 duo are going to be the first ones to receive the update along with the latest-gen foldable devices.
