It normally takes a long time for Android OEMs to bring the new update of the OS into older smartphones, but Samsung has been improving year after year. The official upgrade schedule for Android 11 began in early December and is now expanding. Here's a list of all Samsung devices that have been upgraded to Android 11 so far.

As new devices are released, this article will be updated with new information.

What's new in Android 11 for Samsung phones and tablets?

Samsung's Android 11 update has many of the enhancements you've come to expect from Google's update, including screen updates, message bubbles, and more. However, Google's valuable power menu shortcuts for smart home gadgets were sadly removed. Shame on you.

In addition to Android 11, Samsung is including One UI 3.0, which has all of the features that Galaxy owners have come to expect, as well as a few new updates and a fresh coat of paint on the overall interface. It's a sleek design that continues to refine Samsung's Android work, which, to be honest, has gotten a lot better in recent years.

So, which smartphones will get Android 11? Samsung has announced updates for a large number of S, Note, Z, and A series smartphones, but even more, will likely be modified in the future. So far, here's what's been revised.

Android 11 is now available for Samsung smartphones.

  • Galaxy S20 Series
  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S20+
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy S20 FE

The Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra all received the Android 11 update on December 2nd, and it was available on various US carriers as well as unlocked versions and global carrier devices. In late February, these phones received One UI 3.1 as well.

The Galaxy S20 FE received Android 11 on December 18 in Russia, with updates also arriving in the UK, India, and Germany. The update began rolling out in the United States on January 7, with all major carriers releasing updates by January 18. At this point, it seems that the update has nearly completed its global rollout.

The S20 series started receiving One UI 3.1 in late February, and the update is now widely available in the United States and around the world. Notably, for some consumers, the update is still inaccessible in some regions.

Galaxy Note 20 Series

  • Galaxy Note 20
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

On AT&T, the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra received Android 11 updates about December 14. Since then, Verizon, T-Mobile, and unlocked models also appeared. The update is also available on carriers and unlocked units around the world.

The Galaxy Note 20 series began receiving One UI 3.1 in February, and the upgrade is now available on all major carriers and in other countries.

Galaxy A Series

  • Galaxy A51, 4G, and 5G
  • Galaxy A71 5G
  • Galaxy A31
  • Galaxy A50/s
  • Galaxy A40
  • Galaxy A80
  • Galaxy A70
  • Galaxy A60

Samsung's wildly successful budget smartphone series will get Android 11 as well, and much earlier than most people predicted. Both the Galaxy A51 5G and Galaxy A71 5G received geographic updates in early February. Meanwhile, the Galaxy A51 (4G), the world's most common Android phone, received an update in mid-February that was virtually universal. The Galaxy A51 5G eventually received Android 11 in early April, and Samsung also upgraded to One UI 3.1. In early March, the older Galaxy A50 and A50s received Android 11 with One UI 3.1, but only in select regions. In April, it was released on the Verizon-owned A50.

In Europe, the Galaxy A40 and Galaxy A80 both received Android 11 and One UI 3.1 in March. The update began rolling out to the Galaxy A90 5G in South Korea and the Galaxy A70s in India on March 25th. The Galaxy A70 saw a larger release of Android 11 in early April. On April 13th, the Galaxy A60 was revised. As April approaches, Samsung began rolling out the Android 11 update to the famous Galaxy A31 in South Korea. That, like all of Samsung's phones, indicates that a global rollout isn't far off.

Galaxy S10 Series

  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10+
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10 5G
  • Galaxy S10 Lite

In January, Samsung began rolling out Android 11 to the Galaxy S10 range of smartphones. The update is currently only available in Switzerland on the Galaxy S10e and S10 5G, although it is expected to roll out to the S10 and S10+ in the near future, as well as other areas. The update for the S10e is also available in the United States.

The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are both receiving the Android 11 upgrade now, though it was temporarily halted due to glitches. The update seems to be broadly rolled out in Korea as of February 1 and has recently been seen on several US carriers. Both Galaxy S10 versions in the United States have received the update as of mid-February.

In India and Spain, the Galaxy S10 Lite received Android 11 on December 22. The upgrade has since been used in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany.

Around March 10th, One UI 3.1 began rolling out to the Galaxy S10 series in a number of regions, with the US being one of the first to get it.

Galaxy Note 10 Series

  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10+
  • Galaxy Note 10 Lite

Samsung has been updating the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ with Android 11 and One UI 3.0 to bring the year to an end. The update was broadly accessible in most areas by mid-February. In early March, the Note 10 Lite received the update as well.

Samsung Galaxy Foldables

  • Galaxy Z Flip
  • Galaxy Z Flip 5G
  • Galaxy Fold
  • Galaxy Z Fold 2

Samsung has a history of being a little sluggish to upgrade its foldable to new Android models, but the Galaxy Z Flip 5G defied the regulation. The update for that system began rolling out on December 21 in Switzerland, but it has not been verified for other regions.

Samsung also began carrying out the Android 11 update for its standard Galaxy Z Flip, which is a 2GB update, just before the new year. In February, One UI 3.1 was released to the collection.

Samsung released Android 11 for its $2,000 Galaxy Z Fold 2 on January 11th. The upgrade began rolling out in Germany on January 20, and TELUS says it will be available in Canada on January 20. The upgrade is also being carried out in India and the United Kingdom, and it is also widely available in the United States. In certain countries, the One UI 3.1 update began rolling out in late February/early March.

Samsung began pushing out Android 11 to the initial Galaxy Fold on January 18, according to SamMobile. The update is already live in France, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland, but it depends on whether you have the LTE or 5G variant of the handset.

Galaxy Tab Series

  • Galaxy Tab S7
  • Galaxy Tab S7+
  • Galaxy Tab S6
  • Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
  • Galaxy Tab S5e

The Galaxy Tab S7 series was one of the first Samsung tablets to get Android 11, and it also came with One UI 3.1 out of the box. In early March, the Galaxy Tab S6 received Android 11 and One UI 3.1. In early March, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite received the One UI 3.1 update in certain regions. In April, the upgrade was expanded to the Galaxy Tab S5e, which was first used in Russia and the United Kingdom. Other nations should take suit as soon as possible.

Samsung's other Android 11 phone

The list of Samsung devices that will be updated to Android 11 is even longer than what we've mentioned here. Other things that have been revised in some areas include:

  • Galaxy M30s
  • Galaxy M31s
  • Galaxy M21
  • Galaxy F41
  • Galaxy XCover Pro
