One UI Beta program support added to Samsung Members app

A new update is now available for the Samsung Members app. It adds support for the One UI Beta program. Samsung recently confirmed that it will launch the beta later this month. Don’t let the name confuse you. This is the Android 9.0 Pie beta that many of you have been waiting for. One UI is what Samsung is now calling its custom skin for Android.

The company hasn’t provided a confirmed date for the beta’s release right now. It did say during SDC 2018 last week that the beta program will be launched for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ later this month.

Samsung Members app updated with One UI Beta program support

It was reported a couple of days back that the beta might go live on November 15, at least in Germany. That’s one of the markets where the program will go live in the first phase. Others include the United States and South Korea. Samsung will then expand the beta to India, China, Poland, France, Spain and the United Kingdom in the second phase.

It’s a good sign that the Samsung Members app has been updated with support for the One UI beta program. The program will accept registrations through the app. This update shows that the wheels are indeed in motion and that it may not be long before the beta goes live. Version 2.4.70.11 of the Samsung Members app is now available for download from our APK page.

Samsung will hopefully confirm the official launch date for its Android 9 Pie beta program in the near future. The beta program will only be for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Galaxy Note 9 owners will not be able to take part in it. Samsung has already confirmed that Android 9 Pie will be released for the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9/S9+ in January 2019.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S7 updated to Android 9 and one ui?
But I do not know if Samsung would do this because if it does, then there will not be much sales and losses for other flagships. It’s really shameful for Samsung to do it with this mess that’s done. Apple’s list of phones to update to ios 12 To find out that Samsung will never come across Apple’s big company because it has updated iphone 5s to ios 12, but Samsung did not do it with the Galaxy S7 and will not upgrade to Android 9.

Apple in that regard is really ahead and for now no android phone maker is even close to them, not even google (2 years major updates promise + 1 more only security updates). That’s half of the apple support (or even less as they will support fully 5s till 2019 around September).

On the other hand their products are overpriced and quite limited, you have on one side the beast A12 SOC, but on the other – you don’t have even a basic multitasking to use that power. 😀

Some Web pages says that Samsung will include Note 9 in beta program.
Are you sure that there is no beta program for Note 9?

On Samsung’s One UI beta program website is no mention of the Note 9, so it won’t be included.

They don’t do beta tests on the Notes, but who knows this time ^^

There is leaked note 9 firmware/ROM, but I doubt there will be any beta program. It’s not needed to test the new firmware on XX phone, two are more than enough. Especially if they really do a beta test before major release, not creating an excuse to delay the update for most. January is just two months from now + they really push the firmware/ROM development for all the phones, including note 8/s8/s8+ are in works already.
