Galaxy Note 9 One UI (Pie) beta has been released


Last updated: December 4th, 2018 at 11:00 UTC+02:00

Samsung prematurely opened up registrations for the Galaxy Note 9 One UI (Android Pie) beta in the United States last week. The update never came but it confirmed that Samsung would launch the beta program for the Galaxy Note 9 as well. It has now started rolling out the Android 9 Pie beta for the Galaxy Note 9.

We can confirm that the beta is being rolled out now in Germany and India. We have been able to install it on our devices. Registrations are now open through the Samsung Members app. Do hurry if you intend to reserve a spot because they tend to get taken quickly.

Galaxy Note 9 One UI beta finally released

Samsung is straying a bit from tradition here as it doesn’t normally offer a beta program for the Galaxy Note series. The Galaxy Note 8 wasn’t a part of the Oreo beta program launched last year. Not that we mind.

We did report two weeks ago that the Galaxy Note 9 One UI beta could be launched in South Korea and Germany. Seeing as how it’s out for India as well, clearly, Samsung is bringing it to all beta markets. The One UI beta markets include the United States, South Korea, Germany, Poland, Spain, China, France, India and the United Kingdom.

Samsung is rolling out firmware version N960FXXU2ZRKQ for the Galaxy Note 9. It features the November 2018 security patch but that’s not what people have been waiting for. This firmware update brings Android 9.0 Pie in addition to Samsung’s One UI. All of the features that are part and parcel of Android 9 Pie are included in this firmware. We have already detailed quite a few of them in our One UI feature focus series.

You can now try registering for the beta through the Samsung Members app in Germany and India. Galaxy Note 9 owners in other markets can try their luck through the app as well. It may only be a matter of time before the beta goes live there.
