Samsung may launch Android Pie beta program for Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8
Samsung has decided to allow those who bought its 2017 flagships to test Android 9 Pie before the update is released to everyone. The beta program that Samsung launched for the Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note 9 is likely to be extended to three other top-tier smartphones: Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8.

Thanks to the folks at SamMobile, we now know that Samsung is preparing Android Pie beta builds for the Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 and that these updates have already uploaded on the company's servers ready to be pushed out.

According to the latest report on the matter, Samsung plans to release the final version of Android 9 Pie for the Galaxy Note 8 in February, while the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will receive the update no earlier than March.

The Android Pie beta program for Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 is not yet available, but we believe it's just a matter of time until owners of these smartphones will be able to test the update before it's officially released.

As far as availability goes, there's no reason for Samsung not to launch the beta program in the same countries where the S9 and Note 9 betas were made available, so expect these updates to arrive in South Korea, Germany, India, United States, and the UK.
