How to apply for the Galaxy S10 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 S10. 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.
What about the US Snapdragon variants?
