Samsung has improved its ability to update older devices to the latest version of the Android OS every year despite most OEMs taking a long time to do this. Samsung Galaxy Android 11 official update schedule began in early December and continues to grow. Here is every Samsung device that has been updated to Android 11.

What new features does Android 11 bring to Samsung devices?
As with Google Android 11 update, Samsung’s update includes notification improvements, message bubbles, and many other features you’re used to on the platform. But Google’s smart home device power menu shortcuts were unfortunately not included. Shame on you.
On top of Android 11, Samsung will also introduce One UI 3.0, which includes all the features Galaxy owners have come to know and love, as well as a few new additions. In my opinion, this is an appealing design that refines Samsung’s work on Android, which has become increasingly excellent in recent years.
What devices will receive Android 11? The S series, Note series, Z series, and A-series have all confirmed updates, and Samsung is likely to update even more devices in the future. Here is what has been updated so far.
Android 11 is now available for Samsung devices
Galaxy S20 Series
- Galaxy S20 — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy S20+ — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy S20 Ultra — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy S20 FE — One UI 3.1
Several US carriers and global carriers offer the Android 11 update to some of the Galaxy S20 models as of December 2. In late February, these phones also received One UI 3.1.
On December 18, Android 11 began rolling out to the Galaxy S20 FE in Russia, with updates also rolling out to the UK, India, and Germany. Updates have been pushed out by all major carriers in the US as of January 18, with the update launching as of January 7 in Canada. This update appears to be almost fully rolled out across the globe at this point.
The One UI 3.1 update began rolling out to the S20 series in late February, with the update broadly available in the US and worldwide. Notably, some devices in certain regions are still not compatible with the update.

Samsung has also begun rolling out Android 11 to its Galaxy S10 series in January. Initially, it is available on the Galaxy S10e and S10 5G in Switzerland, but it should soon be available on the Galaxy S10 and S10+, as well as in other regions. Also available in the US is the update for the S10e.
In addition, Samsung is now rolling out the Android 11 update to its Galaxy S10 and S10+, though it was temporarily halted due to bugs. Since February 1, the update has been widely rolled out in Korea and some carriers in the United States have started offering it. For all Galaxy S10 models in the US, the update became available in mid-February.
Around December 22 in India and Spain, the Galaxy S10 Lite was updated to Android 11. As of now, the update has been noticed in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
In many regions, the Galaxy S10 series has been receiving One UI 3.1 since March 10, but has been especially widespread in the US.

Earlier this year, all major carriers and other countries started offering One UI 3.1 for the Galaxy Note 20 series.
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ received Android 11 and One UI 3.0 to close out the year. Most regions will have access to the update by mid-February. Early in March, the Note 10 Lite also received the update.

Also coming soon to Samsung’s ultra-popular budget series of phones is Android 11. Updates for both the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 5G arrived in early February through regional releases. In the meantime, Samsung’s Galaxy A51 (4G) rolled out its update in mid-February near the end of the world. On April 1st, Samsung launched One UI 3.1 and eventually upgraded the Galaxy A51 5G to Android 11. In early March, Samsung’s older Galaxy A50 and A50s got Apple’s One UI 3.1 with Android 11, though only in selected markets. Verizon began selling the A50 in April.
In Europe, the Galaxy A40 was updated to Android 11 and One UI 3.1 along with the Galaxy A80. As April approaches, Samsung has begun rolling out Android 11 for the popular Galaxy A31 in South Korea. Samsung’s phones are released globally, so it’s likely the same will apply here as well. In addition to the Galaxy A01, the Galaxy A31 also received a wider rollout of Android 11 around April 24th, and the Galaxy A41 received its Android 11/One UI 3.1 update just a few days later.
Russia was the first country to receive Android 11 for the Galaxy A02s, before the rest of the world. In the same region, Samsung also updated the Galaxy A12 with an update. In Central America, the Galaxy A11 was spotted with the update on May 13th. A week later, the Galaxy A30 was updated in India. A20 and A30s both received Android 11 updates in early June. Around the same time, the Galaxy A20e was updated.
Samsung Galaxy Foldables
- Galaxy Z Flip — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Z Flip 5G — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Fold — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Z Fold 2 — One UI 3.1
Samsung uses its foldable devices to update Android very cautiously, but its Galaxy Z Flip 5G outshone the company’s precedent. After Switzerland implemented the update on December 21, it is unknown whether other regions will follow suit.
In addition, Samsung also began rolling out Android 11 to regular Galaxy Z Flips just ahead of the New Year with a roughly 2GB update. It has been rolling out for a few months now.
Samsung opened the floodgates to the Android 11 for its $2,000 Galaxy Z Fold 2 on January 11. TELUS is reporting that the update will be available in Canada by January 20, just as it started rolling out in Germany. In addition to India and the UK, the update has been widely deployed in the United States. A version of One UI 3.1 was available in some regions from late February through early March.
The original Galaxy Fold is starting to receive Android 11 updates following the report by SamMobile on January 18. It may be dependent on whether you have the LTE or 5G version of your phone if you’ve already received the update in France, UAE, UK, and Switzerland.
Galaxy Tab Series
- Galaxy Tab S7 — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab S7+ — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab S6 — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab S6 Lite — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab S5e — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab A7 — One UI 3.1
- Galaxy Tab Active 3
- Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) — One UI 3.1
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 series was one of the first tablets to get Android 11, and it came with One UI 3.1 right out of the box. In early March, the Galaxy Tab S6 was updated to Android 11 and One UI 3.1. A 3.1 One UI update was also released in March for some Galaxy Tab S6 Lite models. I expect the rest of the world to follow suit quickly. In some regions across Europe, the Galaxy Tab A7 was just a few days behind the Galaxy Tab Active 3 in picking up its update in the second half of April. The Galaxy Tab S6, as well as the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019), were updated to Android 11 in May/June.
