Samsung had started rolling out the One UI 3.1 update to the Galaxy S20 FE a few days ago. However, the company seems to have pulled the update, and it is no longer available to download. The Galaxy S20 FE was launched last year with Android 10, but it received the Android 11 update with One UI 3.0 two months ago.
The latest update for the Galaxy S20 FE is no longer available through OTA or Smart Switch. It is still unclear as to why Samsung pulled the One UI 3.1 update for the Galaxy S20 FE. However, it is possible that the firmware had some bugs, and the company could’ve pulled it to fix those issues. Last month, Samsung had pulled the Galaxy S10’s One UI 3.0 update as well but resumed the release a few days later.
The One UI 3.1 update for the Galaxy S20 FE was largely rolled out in European markets. It brought some additional features such as the Google Discover feed option on the home screen, the ability to set video call effects in third-party apps, the option to remove location data from images and videos before sharing them with others, and some minor UI tweaks.
Samsung might resume the rollout of One UI 3.1 to the Galaxy S20 FE within a few days.
