Samsung unleashed the Galaxy F-series last year as a “camera-centric” lineup. Well, in essence, it’s a weird smartphone series. Since so far we’ve been seeing more rebrandings than anything. The Galaxy F41, for example, is practically a Galaxy M31 with one less camera and no NFC support. There are other F smartphones coming soon, and most of them seem to be based on existing Galaxy M or A devices. Despite this confusing existence, it’s good to see that Samsung will give the same treatment it gives to the A and M-series. Today, the Galaxy F41 is getting the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update in India.
All the Android 11 goodies coming inside of a refreshed Samsung experience
The update for the Galaxy F41 is rolling out over the air and carries the F415FXXU1BUAC build number. The update carries all the goodies introduced by Android 11 such as one-time permissions, organized notifications, and chat bubbles support. As far One UI 3.0 is concerned, it also brings a set of improvements such as a refreshed UI.
Although the update seems to be rolling out fast via OTA, it may take a couple of days to reach all devices. For that reason, don’t hold your breath for it just yet. It’s rolling out in a gradual form. If you’re impatient, you can always try to manually force check this update by going to Settings >> Software update >> Download and Install.
As we said before, the Galaxy F41 is very similar to the M31. No surprise that the latter is getting this update a couple of days after the former.
