The Samsung Galaxy M51 and Galaxy S10 Lite are reportedly receiving One UI 3.1 updates in Russia and Spain respectively. Along with the Android 11-based update, smartphones would also receive their March 2021 security updates. The release of OTA updates in other markets is expected to follow shortly. Unlike the Galaxy S10 lite, the Galaxy M51 skips the One UI 3.0 update and directly gets the latest version of Android and the latest UI from Samsung.
According to SamMobile reports, the Galaxy M51 and Galaxy S10 Lite are receiving the new One UI 3.1 updates and March 2021 security updates. They will now join a long list of Galaxy smartphones and tablets that are already running on the operating system based on Android 11. The Samsung Galaxy M51 was the most expensive model in the Galaxy M series of budget smartphones until recently when the Galaxy M52 was launched. Samsung initially launched the Galaxy M51 with One UI 2.1 based on Android 10 and moved straight to One UI 3.1 based on Android 11 from One UI 2.1, removing One UI 3.0 completely.
The update for this smartphone was only released in Russia with the version number M515FXXU2CUB7, reports SamMobile. It should be deployed soon in the other regions. Since it’s a budget smartphone, reports add that it gets a base version of One UI 3.1. As we mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is the other smartphone that would receive the One UI 3.1 update, with SamMobile reporting the rollout of build number G770FXXU4EUBA. The OTA update, however, has only been released in Spain and is expected to roll out gradually to other regions soon. This isn’t the first Android 11-based update to the Galaxy S10 Lite, as it received the One UI 3.0 update late last year.
