Samsung to kick off Galaxy S9 and Note 9 Android 10 beta soon
Although it's one of the biggest smartphone makers in the world, Samsung hasn't yet upgraded its flagships to Android 10. Fortunately, it won't be long until at least two phones, the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, will receive the highly-anticipated Android 10 update.

Now, if you own a slightly older Samsung flagship, like the Galaxy S9 or Note 9, you'll be happy to know that these phones are next in line to receive Android 10 updates. SamMobile reports Samsung Korea confirmed to a customer that the Galaxy Note 9 beta program will start later this week.

Also, the South Korean handset maker will kick off the Galaxy S9 beta program sometime next week. Although these beta builds will first be released in South Korea, we expect the program to expand in other countries, including in the United States.

Once Samsung is ready to start testing Android 10 for either of the two flagships, it will open registrations of the beta program. If you're willing to become a tester for Samsung, we'll let you know when the beta program arrives in the US, so stay tuned.

Already running it on my Note 10+, and it's been buttery smooth, except for a folder I made not opening sometimes. Very solid beta so far.

One of the very few perks of a factory unlocked phone. Beta on the wife's s10 is smooth so far, no glitching that effects her use of it. Hoping the same for my g965u1.

That didn't even make sense. It's a beta for testng software, that isn't official yet.

To each their own. When was the last time Apple allowed you to test unreleased software? Much less take your feedback (with many others) and make suggested changes? Lol. I'm sure many iOS users are still waiting on features that Samsung added through consumer feedback. If the limited iOS works for you, good to know. But, many Android (Samsung specifically) users have features and wares that Apple has yet to allow. 5s was my last iOS device, and it was just to water downed to what a Galaxy offered.
