Samsung also released software alongside the Galaxy S21 series (Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra). The firmware is unsurprisingly based on Android 11.

The Galaxy S21 series runs an updated version of One UI, dubbed One UI 3.1, out of the box. And while the updated UI was initially exclusive to the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra, it’s moving out to other devices.

Samsung’s pushing One UI 3.1 to the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ and it brings new features like Auto Switch, Second Screen, and Wireless Keyboard Sharing.

Samsung’s also pushed out a newer version of One UI 3, dubbed One UI 3.1.1, to select Galaxy devices. The company doesn’t note the version number in the Settings menu or change log, but it is indeed a new version of One UI 3.

The One UI 3.1.1 update has several changes on board including performance upgrades, a new quick setting toggle for Bedtime Mode, and improvements to stock apps.

The software is cruising out to the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy S10 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, the Galaxy Note 10,  Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Z Flip One, Galaxy Fold, and the Galaxy A52 5G.

These Galaxy Devices Will Get Android 11

Samsung typically keeps devices updated with major Android software updates for two years. Fortunately, the company has changed this policy.

The company says it’s committed to providing three years of major software upgrades going forward. This is obviously a huge development.

Initially it looked like this might only apply to higher profile devices, but according to Samsung, lengthier support will also be extended to other devices. Sadly, it doesn’t cover older models like the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9.

Here’s the full list:

  • Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra, Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20+ 5G, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 5G, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 Lite, and upcoming S series devices.

  • Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Fold 5G, Galaxy Fold, and upcoming Z series devices.
  • Galaxy A71 5G, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A90 5G, and select upcoming A series devices.
  • Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, Galaxy Tab S7+, Galaxy Tab S7 5G, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S6 5G, Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, and upcoming Tab S series devices.

These Galaxy Devices Won’t Get Android 11

Any Galaxy device that’s not on that list is currently on the fence when it comes to Android 11. That means popular devices like the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series are very much in danger of getting left behind on Android 10.

While we wait for more official information, have a look at our Samsung Galaxy Android 12 roadmap. It outlines everything you need to know, right now, about Samsung’s version of Android 12.

6 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S22 & 3 Reasons Not To

Wait for Even Better Performance

Wait for Even Better Performance

You can expect the Galaxy S22 series to build on the foundation left behind by the Galaxy S21 series and offer improved performance in a number of key areas.

Per usual, you can expect the Galaxy S22 to come with an Exynos processor in some markets and a Qualcomm chipset in others. If you live in the United States, you can expect a new Snapdragon processor inside your Galaxy S22. 

Nothing is confirmed, but there's a good chance the Galaxy S22 utilizes Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon processor.

We've heard a few things about Qualcomm's Snapdragon 898 and it looks like it will be the processor that powers the Galaxy S22 series in most markets

Leaker Ice Universe says the next-generation processor will feature ARM’s Cortex X2 CPU core and run at 3.09GHz.

As for the Exynos side of things, Samsung is reportedly testing a new version of the processor with AMD graphics. It will reportedly be called Exynos 2200.

A new processor should help the Galaxy S22 series deliver even better performance in key areas like speed, battery life, gaming, and multitasking. 

Leaker FrontTron says battery estimates for the Galaxy S22 series are: Galaxy S22 - 3800 mah, Galaxy S22+ - 4600 mah, and Galaxy S22 Ultra - 5000 mah.

Well, the Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra batteries have passed 3C certification. The Galaxy S22+ is listed with a 4,370 mAh battery (probably a 4500 mAh capacity) while the Galaxy S22 Ultra is listed with a 4,855 mAh battery (probably 5000 mAh capacity). 

Digitimes is also saying that Samsung is "reconsidering adopting vapor chambers for its new smartphones for 2022." This could help the devices run at peak performance for longer periods of time. 

The report doesn't mention the Galaxy S22 series, but there's certainly a chance the flagship devices adopt this technology.

We've also heard that Samsung is currently testing improved charging power on the Galaxy S22. The information comes from leaker Ice Universe. He says the company is trying to bring charging power above 25W to 45W or 65W fast charging. 

In a new tweet, Ice Universe says he's 100% sure the company will bring 45W wireless charging to the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Twitter leaker FrontTron also claims Samsung is planning to test 65W charging on the Galaxy S22 series. 

If you're a power user and you aren't thrilled with what's out there right now, you might want to sit back and wait for the Galaxy S22 series.

    it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4(2020)/Sm-T307U) are getting the Android 11 push. I already have 28 devices that updates while none of my 120+ Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (SM-T387V) have even tried.
