Even though the recordings were opened last week it seems that the rollout of the Android 9 Pie beta for Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is only starting today, starting again from Germany and India.
The new firmware for Samsung Galaxy Note 9 brings the security patches of November and of course the One UI interface. You can sign up for the beta program through the Samsung Members app if you live in Germany or India, but nothing prevents you from trying to register from other countries. In any case it should not take long before the update is available worldwide.
Samsung’s new One UI is quite intriguing as it aims to not only make a smartphone usable simply with one hand but also includes visual tweaks and adds new features on top of Android Pie. The most interesting part is the way it splits the UI into two elements – the interactive and the viewable part. The interactive part lies in the bottom half and the viewable element is on the top half. This allows users to reach those parts of the UI very easily which were earlier on the topmost edge of the screen hence making it more easy for one-handed use. But that’s just one big change, there will be much more to look forward to the next year and we are excited.
