Samsung’s One UI has been in news ever since it got unveiled by the company in November last year. Earlier this month reports surfaced online which claimed that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 One UI beta program could go live soon. We should mention that beta One UI builds for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone had already been spotted on the company’s servers at the time when these reports emerged. And now, the company has confirmed that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be getting the Android Pie beta.
It is worth noticing that this also improves the chances of Galaxy S8 to get the One UI based Android Pie beta. Beta builds from Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have also been spotted on the company’s servers. If our guess is right, the smartphone giant will roll out the beta launch to those two smartphones too.
Coming back to Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it is a pleasant surprise for users to know that their smartphone will be getting the Android Pie beta build. When Android Pie beta builds were rolled out to Samsung Galaxy Note 9, users were very happy to get an opportunity to experience the new One UI software. And then, the company went a step ahead and opened up the One UI based Android Pie beta for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 too.
This is the first time that the company is rolling out its beta programs to previous generation smartphones. Prior to this, it has limited beta programs only to its current flagship models.
Samsung has posted a notice on its Samsung Members app about the Galaxy Note 8 One UI beta program which says that the users of the smartphone will get to experience Android Pie based One UI earlier than others.
If you are a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 user, you should know that the registrations for the program have opened. Till now, the update has only started rolling out in India and South Korea, but it is expected to make its way to other markets too. By signing up for the beta program, you will be able to experience One UI before its stable update rolls out to masses.
