A few weeks ago, Samsung announced that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was able to register for beta access of One UI with Android 9 Pie ahead of the official release. Today the company started to kick off the beta program.
Owners of unlocked variants of Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8 can now get a taste of the new Android flavor via an OTA update. If you’re not a member of the beta program, the good news is that you can still register and get access to the update via Samsung+ app and open the Notices Sub-menu. If you get successfully enrolled in the beta program, you may receive the new beta a time now.
The new update brings a redesigned interface to make the smartphone more efficient with the new foldable design that we are expecting to see with the Galaxy Fold and also is packed with functionalities for super-long displays that became a trend in the recent years. The update also includes Gestures controls and Android Pie’s new gesture pill. You should also see Samsung’s vision of Digital Wellbeing and Adaptive Battery with this new update.
