Android 11 on Samsung: this is the new One UI 3.0 interface


Currently, all major manufacturers are working based on Android 11 to create their new interfaces. Huawei, Xiaomi, OnePlus... all these brands modify Google's software to customize it and, from its point of view, improve it.

Yesterday we knew what Color OS 11 would look like, the OPPO interface, and today we know a little more about One UI 3.0, Samsung's new interface, although it has not yet been officially introduced.

Changes to the new interface
The first thing we're going to list is the changes you've seen in the One UI 3.0 beta in XDA Developers, where you've been able to test it. However, they make it clear that it is still lacking to implement all the changes that Google has introduced on Android 11 since this is a beta for developers.

Samsung has started working on One UI 3.0 based on Android 11


First images of the beta version of One UI 3.0
The first screenshots show us what Samsung's interface will look like in 2021. For starters, we have a blur in the notification area, similar to the one shown by Color OS 11.

Other changes are those related to the new features of Android 11, such as the Conversations section in the notification curtain, the presence of bubbles in the apps, or the being able to swipe over the multimedia playback control to navigate between the apps of this type that we are controlling.

In the XDA-Developers article, there are more screenshots of virtually every section of the interface, although most are very similar to what we already have in One UI 2.0.
