Samsung’s new and intuitive interface design called One UI; a minimal design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen – making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use. The experience was re-engineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone.
Android 9.0 One UI Beta will start later this month in the United States, Germany, and South Korea. More countries in Europe and Asia including China, India, France, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom will also get the open beta program in the second phase. While undergoing final testing, beta software may include errors or bugs, and may not include the same features as commercially available software, added the company.
To become a beta tester, users need to download the Samsung Members application from Galaxy Apps or the Google Play Store. After logging in, go to Notices and select “One UI Beta Program Registration” to submit an application. Once signed up, go to Settings and then Update Software to
select the Download Updates Manually option. This will allow the software to update and load the beta version.
Samsung also said that it will use the feedback from the beta testers before the firmware’s official release for the public in January 2019.
