Samsung UK now says Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta is ‘coming soon’

Samsung UK has updated its website about the One UI Galaxy S9 beta to say that it is “coming soon.” The same website had earlier said that the beta program would launch in the UK on November 20th. Now, we can’t say for certain if this means the date provided initially was incorrect or that you could see the beta program pop up at any moment now. Samsung does say that we should keep an eye on the Samsung Members app, but it would be best to not be too hopeful.

From a concrete date to coming soon

samsung uk android pie beta delay

Some Samsung UK support representatives are telling people that the beta program did begin on November 20, but it would take time to reach everyone because it’s rolled out in phases. But a phased rollout wasn’t employed for the beta in the phase one countries, so this could be another case of Samsung’s support representatives having no clue about things. And not a single Galaxy S9 or S9+ user in the UK seems to have gotten access to the beta yet. That’s a good sign that the beta is yet to reach the country.

It also makes sense that the UK isn’t getting beta access so soon. The UK is supposed to be in the second phase of the Android Pie beta program. And the possibility of phase two kicking off less than a week after phase one seems highly unlikely. That said, we’ll be keeping a close eye on things over the next few days just in case Samsung is going to expand availability of the beta so quickly. In the meantime, be sure to check out our One UI feature focus series to see what’s new with Android Pie and One UI.

Do tell us if you get access to the beta in the UK or any of the other phase two countries by leaving a comment. For those wondering, the phase two countries include China, Poland, Spain, France and India.

Abhijeet is right. There isn’t one from what I heard. Only the S9 will be beta tested. The finished version will come to Note9 and S9 in January……that’s according to my friend at Samsung Turkey.. We will see

I haven’t seen anythng in PL @ my XEO S9+ so far.. in my humble opinion Samsung should focus on their users more carefully cause China mobiles are getting better from year to year….

I can see Trump screaming here FAKE NEWS cuz this is happening here. Yesterday I asked them what is happening…They even don’t know about the update. Don’t wanna offend anybody but the source should be checked before posting such news. Samsung support seems pretty bad source.

haha – great start – SERIOUSLY – cant Samsung get it RIGHT once?
The software is really their biggest weakness – and should start learning from Apple on that front
I am sure we will see this in December
I wonder why they didnt include UK in the first wave like last years – but included USA instead

They probably put Germany instead of UK into the first wave because of Brexit
