After the Galaxy S20 (stable) and the Note 20 (beta) lines, however, what are the next Samsung Galaxy phones to get the Android 11 update?

The Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10 Plus get the Android 11 beta with One UI 3.0 update already

In that same three-year update post, Samsung mentioned that this year's flagships from the popular S series will get the Android 11 goods first: "the Galaxy S20 line-up will also be the first Galaxy devices to receive the Android 11 upgrade later this year, with other devices to follow shortly thereafter."

Those "other" devices turned out to be the Galaxy Note 20 family and now the S10 series, followed by upper midrangers like Galaxy A71 5G and the foldable darlings like the Z Fold 2. The updates will then trickle down the chain all the way to the A51, as has become customary. Samsung is getting faster and faster with Android updates each year, and it recently set an Android 11 update record with the S20 models.

Yep, a Samsung community forum manager has announced that the Galaxy Note 20 Android 11 beta period is closing, reports TizenHelp, meaning that the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra will soon be getting the stable release, while Samsung is opening the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ One UI 3.0 beta now.

To receive the Android 11 beta with One UI 3.0 update on your Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+, go to the Samsung Members app, and check if the official banner ad for signing up is present. For now, the rollout starts in UK, India and Korea, but if recent history is any indication, the Android 11 update will be hitting the T-Mobile/Sprint Samsung S10 models in the US as soon as December.
