Head into the Samsung+ app and open up the Notices sub-menu. If you manage to get a spot in the beta program, you should get the update any time now.
What’s the big deal about this update? Samsung is re-designing its user interface to make it more efficient with the new foldable design that we are expecting to see, as well as more ergonomic of the super-long displays that have been trendy over the past couple of years. It also incorporates the new gesture-based controls, which come with Android 9 Pie and its new gesture pill.
