This year, Samsung has been impressive with the rollout of the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to its smartphones. The update has already been rolled out to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Now, the company is rolling it out to the Galaxy S20 FE.
The Galaxy S20 FE (SM-G780F) has started receiving the One UI 3.0 update in Russia. The update carries firmware version G780FXXU1BTL1 and includes the December 2020 security patch. It is a major software update, so we suggest you download it using a Wi-Fi network. This update has arrived earlier than expected, and Samsung mentions in its roadmap that the One UI 3.0 update will arrive for the Galaxy S20 FE in January or February, depending on the market. So, other markets could still be a few weeks away from getting the update.
The Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update brings a tweaked UI design, conversations section in the notifications area, dedicated media playback widget, repositioned volume controls, and support for chat heads. The company has also improved all of its stock apps such as Calendar, Contacts, Messages, Phone, Reminders, Samsung Internet, and Samsung Keyboard. Improvements to Digital Wellbeing and Parental Controls are also introduced with One UI 3.0. You can have a look at all the UI changes here.
If you are a Galaxy S20 FE user in Russia, you would’ve received the update notification already. If you haven’t received it yet, you can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. Alternatively, you can download the entire firmware through our firmware section.
