Galaxy Note20 series One UI 3 beta with Android 11 registrations now open in the US
by Rajesh Pandey
Samsung has started accepting applications for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra's One UI 3 beta program in the United States. The company had launched the public beta program for the Galaxy S20 lineup in the United States earlier this month.
As of now, Samsung is only accepting applications from Galaxy Note20 or Note20 Ultra owners who have the Sprint, T-Mobile, or the unlocked variant of the device. If you want to try out the upcoming One UI 3 update on your Note20 now, you should send your application to Samsung using the Samsung Members app. The slots are limited so if you are interested, send your application as quickly as possible.
The first public beta One UI 3/Android 11 build for the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra should start rolling out in the coming days as well. Whenever the build does land though, it won't be too different from the One UI 3 build that's already available for the Galaxy S20 series in the United States.
Samsung is debuting a number of new features in One UI 3 including improved widget support in Always-on Display mode, enhanced Samsung Keyboard and Internet app with new features, more powerful Bixby Routine, and more.
Samsung should expand the One UI 3/Android 11 beta testing program for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note20 to other countries like India, Germany, Poland, China, the United Kingdom, and more.

by Jay Bonggolto
Samsung announced today the availability of the Galaxy Tab Active3 Enterprise Edition in Germany. The rugged tablet was originally unveiled late last month for enterprise users.
The Tab Active3 is now available to purchase via Samsung's retail partners and select wireless carriers in Germany. It carries a price tag of €477, available only in black and with support for three generations of Android upgrades.
It sports an 8-inch TFT LCD display with a 1920x1200 resolution. The tablet is powered by an octa-core Exynos 9810 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage that's expandable via a microSD card. At the back of the device, there's a 13MP camera while at the front sits a 5MP selfie camera.
As a rugged device, it is MIL-STD-810H certified, meaning it can endure various challenging environments. It is also IP68-rated for dust and water protection. Samsung also claims the tablet can withstand a drop of up to 1.5 meters courtesy of its shock absorption system coupled with its Protective Cover.
The Tab Active3 packs a 5050mAh removable battery that features a No Battery mode, allowing you to use the tablet without a battery by plugging it in to a power supply. Of course, it supports Samsung DeX for a PC-like experience and Google ARCore for augmented reality services. In addition, it has a quick access button mounted on its side and comes with an IP68-certified S Pen.

You can get your phone fixed without having to leave your home thanks to uBreakiFix
by Usman Khan Lodhi
uBreakiFix, an electronics repair service, is launching its "We Come to You" mobile repair program across the U.S., in which the company's services are brought to customers' doors rather than the other way around. It also offered free Google Pixel repairs to frontline workers earlier this year. A fleet of more than 640 repair vehicles has been deputed to handle repairs, which include screen repair and battery replacement, in two hours or less.
Appointments can be booked as soon as the same day, and visits can be arranged for places other than your home, as long as the place is in an eligible zip code. Customers may take note that the vehicles won't offer a full range of repairs that they can get at a brick-and-mortar location. For now, only a handful of repair types are supported, with the firm planning to expand the program for more types of devices and services in the future. To secure appointments, there is a $30 non-refundable fee.
Though the launch has been announced nationwide, it isn't available in every market yet, with the firm planning to add 700 vehicles by the end of the year and extending the program to Canada. To check if these mobile repairs are available in your area, head over to this page, and input your zip code.

Samsung begins rolling out One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy S9 series
by Abhay Venkatesh
Samsung debuted One UI 2.5 with the Note20 series, which then made it to other flagships such as the S20 line, the S10 and Note10 series of phones, and even the Note9 just last week. Today, the latest Android 10-based One UI release is reportedly making it to the Galaxy S9 and S9+, which is most likely the last major update for the 2018 flagships.
The list of features making it to the S9 series is not quite different from the Note9, which means that the devices can now let users leverage wireless DeX capabilities. There are also other improvements such as added functionality for the Pro Video mode, options for Single Take recording, and enhancements to some system apps. The update should also add support for Android 10’s gesture navigation system with third-party launchers, which has been a limitation in One UI 2.1.
The rollout has reportedly begun rolling out to users in Germany and is expected to make it to more regions in the next few weeks. You can read about all the new One UI 2.5 features here, but it is to be noted that not all features will be supported on older devices such as shooting 21:9 videos in 8K and the like.
This will most likely be the last of the major updates for the S9 family of phones. Going forward, the company is expected to only release monthly security updates for the next year before moving to a quarterly update schedule.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra renders leak, show massive rear camera bump
by Rajesh Pandey
Hours after the Galaxy S21 renders made their way to the internet, leaker @OnLeaks has now posted the renders of the Galaxy S21 Ultra as well.
Unlike the Galaxy S21, the Ultra model will feature a curved display. From the renders, it looks like the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a display size that will measure between 6.7-inch to 6.9-inches. The device is estimated to measure in at 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm.
Living up to its name, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will feature a massive camera hump at the rear. The design of the camera module is very unique as it seems to extend from the metallic chassis itself. As per Onleaks, the Galaxy S21 Ultra's camera bump will be twice the size of the regular S21. It will also feature four camera sensor along with an LED flash. There's no information on the camera setup, though it is rumored the Ultra could ship with two periscope camera setups.
Contrary to other rumors, Onleaks also confirmed that the Galaxy S21 Ultra will not have S-Pen support as it does not have any dedicated slot at its bottom for it, though there's always a possibility of software support being present. Lastly, Onleaks suggest Samsung will announce the Galaxy S21 series in January in 2021, a month ahead of its usual launch timeframe for its flagship Galaxy phone.
