Samsung’s Android Pie ‘One UI’ will be available for Galaxy S9 and Note 9 in January, Beta coming this month

Samsung, today at its developer conference in San Francisco, introduces a new and intuitive interface design called One UI. Its clean and minimal design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen – making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use.

The experience was re-engineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone.

Well, you don’t need to wait for it. The Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note 9 will be updated with Android Pie and Samsung One UI starting in January of 2019. Samsung will open a beta test for One UI based on Android 9 Pie on S9 and S9+ starting this month.

At the event, Samsung stated that the beta will be initially limited to the US, Germany, and South Korea, but the official website for the One UI beta also shows China, France, India, Poland, Spain, and the UK.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ owners who wish to apply for the beta can do from the Samsung Members app. Android Pie will arrive on some older Samsung devices sometime after they arrive on the Galaxy S9 and Note 9.
