Samsung may include Note 9 in the Android Pie update beta, mum's the word on the Verizon or AT&T models
If you have been wondering whether Samsung has any plans of bringing its new One UI interface that comes with the Android 9.0 Pie update, to your Note 9 on Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile, you'll have to still wonder, but there are hints you might get the bets at least. 

The folks from Galaxyclub have unearthed firmware postings for the Android 9.0 Pie beta that refer to the European and Korean Note 9 models.

For instance, the Galaxy S9's One UI beta that is already rolling out has a Z inside the firmware number (as in G960FXXU2ZRKA), while there are now N960FXXU2ZRKE and N960NKSU2ZRKF versions for the foreign Note 9 models floating around. 

Thus, there might only be a matter of time before firmware with "US" in it pops up (as in G960USQU3ZRKG for the S9). The beta rollout has just started and there will be at least a few more updates before we hit official release, so Samsung still has time to include the Note 9 in the festivities as well.

Samsung needs to treat its loyal Galaxy Note customers a little better. I should have the option to beta test the One UI like my fellow Galaxy S line users! After all the Note is a flagship device too.
