Samsung started introducing the Android 11-powered One UI 3.0 firmware update for Galaxy S10 devices in the first week of the year. The update was first launched in Europe, but it’s now finally being introduced on the Galaxy S10 series in the USA, too.
The Android 11 / One UI 3.0 update for the S10 lineup in the USA is introduced a little later than we anticipated, especially as nearly two months passed since the update is available in Europe.
However, as some of you may know, Samsung had to forcefully pull the initial release because of some unspecified issues for approximately a week before resuming it.
The problems with the initial release have likely been already fixed, and S10 owners from the USA can finally hop on the One UI 3.0 train that started at the same time with the new year. They will get to experience a new and reworked user interface with an updated look, all thanks to the UI and 1st-party applications, reworked notifications and alerts, revamped lock screen features, and other goodies.
If you own an unlocked Galaxy S10, you should be able to download and install the new firmware update. The new update bears the identifier G97xU1UEU4FUA4.
To install the new update, go to Settings -> Software update -> Download and install.
Alternatively, you can search for the new firmware online and install it on your phone via PC.
However, we suggest that you are patient and wait for the update to be available straight on your phone. You wouldn’t want to mess up the installation process via PC.
