Samsung has decided to surprise Galaxy users with a new Android 11 update based on One UI 3.0. The company has already released a skin for a number of phones (including the Galaxy Note 20 (duo), the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy S20 FE) that will be released next month. Galaxy S10 Lite users now receive the Android 11 update on their smartphone. Here is everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Android 11 update.
Last October we reported that Samsung was testing the One UI 3.0 skin on the Galaxy S10 Lite. And today it lands on the Galaxy S10 Lite (SM-G770F) with the G770FXXU3DTL1 version, which needs about 2GB to download. In the regions of India, the UAE, Panama, Russia and Spain are currently working on crop renewal. It will soon be available in other countries.

The update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite Android 11 includes a new notification bar and a long press menu for applications, a new layout of the volume buttons, an intuitive lock screen and Bixby routines, a multitude of settings on the AOD, and much more. It also contains the basic functionality of Android 11. It also contains a monthly safety symbol for December 2020. Here you can view the full change log.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite One UI 3.0 – Change Log
We’ve updated the look of One UI 3 in several ways, large and small, creating new, more consistent icons and organizing the Quickbar and notifications in a more thoughtful way. The movements are smoother and more natural than ever, with improved animation and haptic feedback for common interactions. And the interface can accommodate different screen sizes to provide the best possible experience on any device, whether it’s a phone, a foldable device or a tablet.
We’ve optimized One UI 3 with better dynamic memory allocation, so applications run faster and more efficiently. We also have limited background activities to achieve better performance and lower energy consumption.
