Google released Android 9 Pie in early August but at the time of launch only Pixel and Pixel 2 got the updated OS while other smartphone manufacturers offered beta version available for their customers except Samsung. Korean smartphone Giant usually takes months to roll the update but this time, we have good news for Samsung consumers. The Good news is that Samsung have uploaded a new FAQ section, terms and condition page for Andriod’s Pie which will be launched by the end of this instance.
The not so good news is that only current flagship models for Galaxy series is going to have the updates. That mean only Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will have the Android 9 Pie. These phones will run the beta version initially with necessary security patches and you have to wait little longer for full version. Despite of having official help pages, we are unsure about the release date for the update. We can only assume that it will be somewhere in Dec or early 2019. XDA suggest that there will be six updates in total over the span of two weeks and only after that final release is out.
Samsung Experience 10
The beta version will have all the Google Android 9 Pie’s tricks as well as Samsung Experience 10 user interface that was leaked a few days ago. Samsung Experience 10 comes has a fully redesigned UI with black backgrounds and white cards with rounded corners. This is redesigned Samsung Experience especially made for Android Pie release for Samsung latest flagship smartphones S9 and S9+. The icons have been redesigned completely to match their new design language. The early builds are usually unstable and has problems. These beta versions will help users to use the real software while submitting the suggestions and bug reports before the general release. It will also have a forum for Samsung users to discuss any problems they face with the Android Pie. Samsung tech teach try their best to reply each user’s comment.
