We present a measurement of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa unitarity triangle angle ϕ3 (also known as γ) using a model-independent Dalitz plot analysis of B+ → D (𝐾0𝑆h+h−)h+, where D is either a D0 or 𝐷⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯0 meson and h is either a π or K. This is the first measurement that simultaneously uses Belle and Belle II data, combining samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of 711 fb−1 and 128 fb−1, respectively. All data were accumulated from energy-asymmetric e+e− collisions at a centre-of-mass energy corresponding to the mass of the Υ(4S) resonance. We measure ϕ3 = (78.4 ± 11.4 ± 0.5 ± 1.0)°, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is the experimental systematic uncertainty and the third is from the uncertainties on external measurements of the D-decay strong-phase parameters.
