Samsung's Android 9.0 Pie update beta for Galaxy S9 starts rolling out, new One UI in tow
promised, has started rolling out a beta version of its Android 9.0 Pie update with the One UI to its latest flagships. The first news came from Korea, but the US, Germany, UK and some other countries are also in line to get it in the next few days. The update comes a bit heavy at 1.7GB but that's nor our of the ordinary for Android version changes, even those in a beta state.
We asked you not long ago if the One UI approach is indeed the best one for today's big screens and the eventual foldable phones, as Samsung claims, and the attitude seems to be overwhelmingly positive, so you can sign up for the beta through the Members app (Samsung+ in the US) and wait patiently for the notification to turn up in your status bar. Overall, it seems that Samsung is finally on the right track in its mobile interface effort and that was the only big missing piece of its Galaxy puzzle.
