After initially leaking back in September, Samsung has confirmed via the Samsung Developers Conference 2018 app that its official Android 9 Pie update is just around the corner and will be unveiled at the company’s event this week.

The overall look of the software is set to get a big refresh that includes an updated lock screen complete with modified fonts, revamped app icons, and new on-screen navigations buttons that are much more simplistic. All of this will also be accompanied by a new Dark Mode which has been a highly-requested feature for quite some time now.

The beta version of Samsung Experience 10 will be available to Galaxy S9 and S9+ users shortly after its unveiling this week. However, in order to gain access to it, these users must reside in the US, UK, or South Korea.

Alongside the regular Android 9 Pie update, the South Korean giant has also confirmed that it will be announcing a new user experience designed specifically for its foldable smartphone. The device, which is set to be called the Galaxy F, will reportedly go on sale in early 2019 and is set to sport a large 7.3-inch display. Additionally, it’s expected to launch in Silver and may also include 512GB of internal storage.
