It typically takes Android OEMs a reasonable piece to get the most recent version of the OS on more seasoned devices. However, Samsung has been improving and better at this consistently.

Beginning this year, Samsung presented the more current version of its custom software system – One UI 3.1. Just like the One UI 3.0, it is also based on the Android 11 operating system. Most of its 2020 phones now receiving the update. Here's every device Samsung has updated to Android 11 so far.

What's new in Android 11 on Samsung devices?

Samsung's Android 11 update brings the typical features you know and loves from Google's update, including notification improvements, Bubbles for messages, and many others. One that was unfortunately cut, though, was Google's useful power menu shortcuts for smart home devices. Shame.

On top of Android 11, the smartphone giant is also including One UI 3.0, which includes all of the features Galaxy owners have known and loved for years, as well as a few new additions and a fresh coat of paint on the design as a whole. It's a slick look that continues to refine Samsung's work on Android that, frankly, has especially become really good over the past few years.

So, what devices are getting Android 11? Samsung has confirmed updates for quite a lot of devices from the S, Note, Z, and A series, but even more devices will likely be updated over time. Here's what's been updated so far.
