With the previous version being suspended due to a serious bug, Samsung restarts One UI 3.0 Beta program for Galaxy Z Fold2 following the first hotfix update. 

Previously, Samsung had rolled out the One UI 3.0 Beta update for Galaxy Z Fold2 with firmware version F916NKSU1ZTKB. It came with a bug that didn’t allow users to unlock the device irrespective of using any biometric methods. Similarly, Samsung had to postpone the Beta update for other devices like Galaxy S10, Z Flip following issues with battery and performance on the Galaxy Note 10.

As it was reported, the update is rolling to users of South Korea currently. The firmware version of the latest One UI 3.0 Beta update is F916NKSU1ZTKD and weighs 189MB. Samsung has reportedly mentioned on Community forums that it has released the 1st hotfix version for the affected users. Accordingly, reports say that the update has fixed the earlier bug.

Although it has fixed the issues and resumed the program for the above devices, reports say that it has ended the Beta program for the Galaxy Note 20 series. This suggests an imminent stable rollout of One UI 3.0. If we recall, Samsung confirmed the OneUI 3.0 Beta based on Android 11 back at the event on August 5. The Public beta program began after the initial developer build and has extended to a lot of flagships including the Galaxy S10 series from 2019.

The Galaxy Z Flip, which received the update a few days ago, becomes the first foldable device to get it. The rollout of One UI 3.0’s stable version will likely start in December and extend to as many as 90 devices.
