The OEM usually schedules two major software upgrades for its devices. However this time there seems to be a change in plan, and for good. As per the recent development, some Samsung devices are now slated for three Android upgrades, and the Galaxy S20 FE is part of this list as well. Since the device was launched with Android 10 (OneUI 2.5), you could now expect it to get the Android 12 and 13 updates as well, in addition to the obvious Android 11 update.
A month back (October 8), a Samsung Care Ambassador tweeted that the device wasn’t in the active development for OneUI 3.0. This translated to the fact that this device might not be among the early adopters for this update.
However, as of now, there seem to be some silver linings in these dark clouds. As per the latest development (November 9), courtesy of the popular tipster Max Weinbach, Samsung is currently testing the Android 11-based OneUI 3.0 Beta on S20 FE. This is definitely welcome news for the device owners.
