Breaking: Samsung to reveal Android Pie, foldable display UX at SDC!

Samsung just made two important revelations through the Samsung Developers Conference 2018 app. The company’s schedule for SDC 2018 will include a dedicated session where it will reveal its new Android 9.0 Pie beta program and tell us how its new foldable displays will make new user experiences possible.

Samsung’s foldable displays are the future

The Galaxy S9 Pie beta program was expected to start during SDC, and while Samsung may only give us a glimpse at the new Android Pie user interface at the conference, there is no reason the company won’t kick things off at the same time or in the next few days. But the more important part here is that Samsung has given us further confirmation that it will show off how its foldable device will shape the company’s future.

Samsung has already dropped hints about this, and the SDC app confirms that we should at least be able to see conceptual images of the first foldable Galaxy phone and its user interface later this week. The Korean giant will also reveal more about the Galaxy Home, its Bixby-powered AI speaker, and many other services and apps. We will have boots on the ground at the developer conference on November 7 and 8, so be sure to tune in to see what Samsung has in store for everyone!

I think one of the biggest problems is that of public perception. We all make the mistake of thinking of Samsung’s release being Android 9.0 when in reality Samsung’s implementation adds features that are a release ahead of the underlying Android platform. The Note 9 has Samsung’s 9.5 UX on it which may be based on Android 8.1 but already has most of the features that Android 9 introduced. The fact is Samsung users aren’t really missing out on anything as a result and actually get a better overall package in most cases than vanilla Android.

Very very late with the 9.0 beta, other brands have had a full, stable, 9.0 released some time ago and we’re still waiting for the beta? What a joke.

Definitely the most ridiculous sheepsung outcoming. Samsung’s software is the worst thing about samsung devices LOL, we all know that. Even where it’s rather good it could/should just be so much better

But they’ve gone and changed their profile pics on social media BACK to normal. Why not keep the folded one?

Maybe they use it to surprise and remove it then on the d-day they’ll use it again.

Every month the Android OS distribution figures are release and Samsung are the main reason it looks so terrible. I’d love to see someone release that chart showing how it would look if the last 2 Samsung flagships were running Pie.

Actually this is bad from Googles part. How can it be that 1 manufacturer run the charts?

Google needs to address this problem….

I’m only making an educated guess that Samsung has that big an impact but either way Google can’t do much to address it, they’ve tried with Project Treble.
