BREAKING: Samsung kickstarts Galaxy S9/S9+ One UI 2.0 (Android 10) beta program
Android 10 has been out for several weeks now and many OEMs are actively testing out their skinned versions of the new system. Samsung for one, has been actively testing out its One UI 2 skin that is based on Android 10. This is in line with their set timelines for rolling out Android 10. Most of their current and recent flagships should get Android 10 in Q1 of 2020.
The Korean tech giant already has closed the beta recruitment for Galaxy S10 and Note 10 users. This could be seen as a move to wind up the testing phase in preparation of official roll out of Android 10. If the most recent update is anything to go by, One UI 2.0 is as good as ready.
After the S10 and the Note 10, the Note 9 and the S9 family are next in line for Android 10-based One UI 2.0. In fact, Galaxy Note 9 users already picked a couple of beta builds.
Well, Samsung has opened up the Android 10 beta program to Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus owners as well. Currently, Korean and Indian models are eligible for the update.
In the Official release notes translated from Korean, the Beta Operations Manager has the following to say;
