It has been a few months since Google released the latest iteration of Android, Android 9.0 Pie. As usual, Samsung is late to the party as none of the Samsung devices has received the update yet. Samsung is set to reveal their version of the new operating system at the Samsung Developer’s Conference that is set to be held on November 7.
At the conference, the South Korean giant is set to reveal changes that they are bringing to Samsung Experience UI with the latest operating system. Also, Samsung will introduce a beta program for Android 9.0 Pie where users with compatible devices can test out an early build of the software and help Samsung to make it better.
Samsung Developer’s Conference will take place for two days, November 7 and 8. Alongside the beta program, the company will also talk about the foldable smartphone. We have heard enough leaks and rumours about the foldable phone and it would be finally in front of the world within a couple of hours.
As for Android 9 Pie, we have already witnessed some early leaked builds for the Samsung Galaxy S9. The new Samsung UX brings changes to the interface and introduces dark mode and full-screen gesture navigation support. First party apps have also been updated to get along with the latest update.
The beta program is most likely to be available for Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy S9 users. It will later be made available for older flagships like the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8+ and the Galaxy S8. Samsung Galaxy S7 and older flagships will not be receiving the update as their update cycle is complete. Mid-range devices like Galaxy A9 and Galaxy A7 (2018) should receive the update soon after flagships receive it.
