Like the Galaxy S20 series, the public will be the first US to receive the Galaxy Note 20 One UI 3.0 beta. However not all carriers are participating in the program. Unless you are with a carrier that is participating or is a factory unlocking device, you will not be able to try the beta yet.
A UI 3.0 beta for the Galaxy Note 20 soon
Samsung has confirmed a UI 3.0 beta registration for the Galaxy Note 20 series for the US through its official forums. Those who own a Galaxy Note 20 or Galaxy Note 20 Ultra from T-Mobile and Sprint will be able to participate. Samsung unlocked units are also eligible.
Signing up for the beta is quite easy. Fire up the Samsung Members app on the device and tap on the beta registration banner on the home page. Once enrolled, a UI 3.0 beta device will be over-the-air.
However this is not happening yet. So it may take some time for Samsung to launch the first Galaxy Note 20 One UI 3.0 beta firmware. This is not out of the ordinary. The company basically fills the first slots before sending them to beta. Those who have registered should get it in a few days.
Android 11-based One 3.0 has a lot to get excited about. If you’re curious about new things, check out our one UI 2.5 vs one UI 3.0 post for all the details. Expect a beta program to cover the Galaxy Note 20 in other markets in the near future.
