Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ One UI beta registrations are now open

We knew it was only a matter of time before it happened and now it has. Samsung has opened up registrations for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ One UI beta program. It was bound to happen after the company started rolling out the One UI beta firmware for the Galaxy Note 8 yesterday.

The notice for the Galaxy S8 One UI beta went live in the Samsung Members app in India first. The Note 8 beta has also been released in other markets such as South Korea and the United Kingdom. You can expect the same for these handsets as well.

Samsung opens up the Galaxy S8 One UI beta program

There was a good chance that Samsung would open up its Android 9 Pie One UI beta to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8. Test beta builds for these devices were spotted on Samsung’s servers not too long ago. When Samsung expanded the program to the Galaxy Note 9 it gave another solid indication that the company was no longer limiting the beta to the most recent Galaxy S flagship as it has in the past.

Registrations for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ One UI beta program are now open through the Samsung Members app. Those who are interested can now apply to get a place in the program. The beta firmware versions are G950FXXU4ZSA5 for the Galaxy S8 and G955FXXU4ZSA5 for the Galaxy S8+.

The Galaxy S8 One UI beta brings Android 9 Pie. Google’s latest iteration of its mobile OS brings several new features. Samsung has also introduced One UI with this update which is a major change for how the interface on its devices looks and feels.

It’s will take time before the stable version of Pie for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ arrives. Going by the company’s Android Pie roadmap, these devices won’t get the update before March 2019.

Pie installed manually via ODIN on my S8 TMS phone (CSC changed to XEU) w/o enrolling in the beta program as its not available in Slovakia and it looks very stable. I almost would say that Samsung is hoding off the roll out on some purpose.

Ah okay. Found it but I can’t install because I I had already updated to the newer version of oreo and it’s not compatible with the beta.

Glad I’m not the only one, just wish someone was able to explain why some have had the update and others haven’t.

kaiserking

Yes, me too. Still no update, and the registration notice seems to have disappeared from the Members app too. Guess the beta registration is now over and I assume we didn’t get it? Which is odd since I applied on the same day it was available, as soon as I saw it. Wth Samsung

Is this for BTU only? I have XEU and am showing no updates despite being registered on the beta program.
Unsure whether to participate anyhow, as probably Android Auto and Android pay won’t be working, and I use both frequently.

No me deja registrar cuando quiero aceptar el registro me sale un mensaje que dice “Tu tarjeta SIM no coincide con el software del proveedor de servicios en el teléfono. Esto suele ocurrir cuando se cambia de proveedor de servicios o si el teléfono y la SIM son de países distintos.”
Cuando voy a la información de software de mi teléfono tengo la versión de software XEU/XEU/PEO.

In the UK, downloading now! I’ll let you all know if it’s buggy!!

realsupermario

So, everything went smoothly and everything seems to work so far – GPS, radios, camera etc… Battery drain seems normal so far. I’ve tested some software, but not extensively. In comparison the initial Oreo BETA beta was very buggy and didn’t stabilise until the 3rd or 4th BETA, so I’m happy so far.

I’m in the UK. Received the registration this morning around 9 a.m. I registered and then rebooted my phone, the OTA became available instantly after the reboot . Official beta installed and it’s running smoothly. I was on the December Security patch CRL3 XEU/XEU/H3G

Sadly I’m in the UK and don’t have the option to register for it, I’ve tried reinstalling the app restarting the phone etc to no avail shame as I really want to try it and the new dark mode

Me apareció el aviso del programa veta en Samsung Members, pero al darle en registrar me aparece este mensaje ” Tu tarjeta SIM no coincide con el software del proveedor de servicios en el teléfono. Esto suele ocurrir cuando se cambia de proveedor de servicios o si el teléfono y la tarjeta SIM son de países distintos.” Aclaro que mi telefono es libre y le instale la rom de Alemania DBT. Hay alguna solución a este problema.
PD: no tengo problemas de señal en el movil.

ponerle una SIM de una operadora alemana y posiblemente estar conectado a una red alemana.

Alternativamente, esperar a la version definitiva de PIE alemana y actualizar a ella, dentro de un mes aprox.
