Besides the latest build of Android (Android 11), the Android “R” beta program will include Samsung’s One UI 3.0 beta. This is the manufacturer’s proprietary UI designed to keep all of the interface elements on the bottom third of the display. This prevents users from finger cramps created when they are forced to stretch their digits in an attempt to reach the top of the screen.
The Android 11 beta program for the Galaxy S20 Series is arriving earlier than previous years which is something that Galaxy users are happy about. In the past, Samsung was criticized for just getting around to its beta program for the latest Android build weeks after Google disseminated the final version of the latest Android build. For example, the final version of Android 10 was released on September 3rd, 2019. A month later, Samsung started pushing out the Android 10 beta. It would appear that Samsung is weeks ahead of last year’s schedule.
