Samsung began rolling out the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 Beta to S10 devices in October. The software update is an iterative update that brings with it Android 10’s gesture navigation and a few improvements to Samsung’s One UI adaptation of the OS. The beta rollout slowly expanded to more regions and devices, including the Note10, S9, and Note9. Now, Samsung’s S9 and Note9 owners in India and South Korea enrolled in the beta program have also begun receiving the One UI 2.0 beta update.
The update comes in at 1.8GB in size and can be downloaded by heading to Settings > Software update > Download and install section if you are already enrolled in the One UI Beta Program. For users that haven’t enrolled, you can do so by heading to the Samsung Members app, clicking on the bell icon at the top right, selecting the “Registrations for One UI Beta Program” option under ‘Notices’ and clicking on the image to register.
While it was expected to see Samsung roll out the official One UI 2.0 update to this year’s flagships before the end of this year, considering the early and rapid release of beta builds, a recent roadmap listing on the Samsung Members app from Israel suggests that the release might not be officially pushed until January 2020 for the S10, Note10, and Note9 devices. Additionally, the S9 is listed as receiving the update in April 2020, which is odd, considering that beta builds have begun rolling out already and the testing timeframe seems long.
It is possible that the update roadmap could be specific to that country or could have been posted by error, so it is best to wait till more information is shared by the company on the schedules for other markets.
