Well, as of now, there are no concrete developments surrounding the release date for One UI 3.1.

But what it has to do with Samsung One UI 3.1 update? Glad you ask it. Judging by the company’s past history, whenever the South Korean giants release a new flagship, it bumps up the One UI version as well. This goes all the way back to the release of the Galaxy S9 series which welcomed One UI 1.0 out of the box. Then as soon as the Galaxy S10 series made its way, it came with One UI 1.1 under the hood.
Continuing this tradition, the Galaxy S20 series came with One UI 2.1 as the underlying OS whereas the recently released Note 20 series had its version increased to One UI 2.5. So unless there’s a sudden change in plan, there’s every possibility that the Galaxy S21 series might come with One UI 3.1 out of the box.
And this translates to the fact that the Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra would be the front runners in adopting this update. After this, the S20 and Note 20 series would be next in line. So what will be the changes in Samsung One UI 3.1 over 3.0? Well, there wouldn’t be any drastic overhaul as such. However, one could definitely expect a few optimizations and improvements to the fore. Along the same lines, you might also welcome some new features.
So as of now, this is all from this coverage on the Samsung One UI 3.1 Update. We would be continuously updating this post as and when we get hold of further developments about the same. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out our in-depth One UI 3.0 update tracker as well.
