Samsung has started the One UI 3.0 Open Beta program for the Galaxy M31 (SM-M315F). This is Samsung’s first mid-range phone that gets One UI 3.0 Beta. Android 11 is already available on high-end phones such as the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20, and more.
The build number of the firmware is M315FDDU2ZTLF. It is based on the latest One UI 3.0 Core with Android 11. It comes with a redesigned user interface, bug fixes, improved performance, and December 2020 security patches.
How to apply for the Galaxy M31 One UI 3.0 Beta Program?
There are two ways to receive the update. The first one is through the Samsung Members app, and the second one is by downloading the OTA file and manually installing it.
One UI 3.0 Beta Program – Samsung Members
Samsung has made it very easy to apply and enroll in the One UI 3.0 Open Beta program. You do not need anything special besides Samsung Members, an app that comes pre-installed. If for some reason you cannot find it, you find it on the Google Play Store.
If you already registered into the previous pre-beta program, all you have to do is to go to Settings > Software Update > Download and install. But if you are not registered, however, there are a few easy steps you have to take.
Download Samsung Members if you haven’t already done so. Open the app, and tap on the little bell icon at the top. Under Notices, there should be a new banner inviting you to enroll in the program. Tap on the banner and follow the steps provided there.
One UI 3.0 Beta Program – OTA file and firmware
If you have a little more technical knowledge, you can download the OTA firmware and manually flash it on Galaxy M31. This is the best way of updating to One UI 3.0 if the official OTA does not arrive on your device. We will publish download links as soon as the files become available.
