Galaxy S8 and Note 8 Get Android Pie with One UI - How to Nab It Early
According to the blog SamMobile, the beta program for Samsung’s flavor of Android Pie is now open for registration through the Samsung Members app. The rollout has started in India but it is expected to reach other countries in the coming days, the blog says.
Users of the unlocked version of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ only have to open the app and apply. According to Samsung’s note, some features are not working at this point. It’s not a stable version, so if you want to give this a try, remember to backup your data first.
Looking at what you are getting, though, it may be worth the risk. One UI has a strikingly clean look that fixes a lot of the clutter from Samsung’s previous Android skins, while automatically adapting to your current task and making things easier to do one-handed.
Or you can wait until March 2019. That’s when Samsung expects to have a final version of One UI for the S8, S8+ and Note 8.
