Samsung has just finished updating the Galaxy S9/S9+ and the Galaxy Note 9 to Android 9 Pie. The South Korean Giant also announced One UI Beta programme for the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8 as well a few days ago.
Today, the company has released a new Android Pie beta update for the Galaxy Note 8. This is the first update since the beta was launched a week ago and comes with software version N950FXXU5ZSAB. There are a number of bug fixes included in the update, which comes in at a sizeable 705 MB. We’re assuming the Galaxy S8 will also be getting this update, but we can’t confirm that at the moment.
The update fixes a few issues with the camera app, such as force closures when trying to use the slow motion modes and the camera viewfinder appearing blurry and not responding to touches. The other fixes seem to be for downloading files to the microSD card, including issues such as music on the microSD card not being detected or files downloaded in Samsung Internet to the external storage not actually being saved. The update also deals with a serious issue that would freeze the screen after the user puts in the secret PIN to unlock the device.
It is worth to mention that Samsung’s One UI will bring a totally revamped user interface that puts the more interactive content at the bottom of the display, making it easier to reach, while the top part is used to show other type of content, along with a new Night mode which is easier for the eyes.
