Samsung’s annual developers’ conference kicks off tomorrow in San Francisco, California. The company has now revealed that it will be showcasing its Android 9 Pie beta at the event. It’s about time that the company revealed information about the next major Android update for its devices. Some of its rivals are already done with their beta programs and have even released the update.
Samsung has updated the calendar in its Samsung Developer Conference 2018 to confirm that it will be introducing the new Galaxy UX with the Android 9.0 Pie beta at the conference. It won’t really be our first look at the new software as leaked Pie builds for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 have already been floating on the web since the past couple of weeks.
The leaked builds have revealed that Samsung is going to make significant user interface changes to its new Galaxy UX. It has even added a system-wide dark mode which will certainly be appreciated by a lot of users. It was also reported recently that Samsung will launch its Android 9 beta program in the near future.
We may get more information about the beta program’s launch dates and markets tomorrow. Given that the beta is starting this late, it would likely not be possible for Samsung to start rolling out the Pie update to the public before next year.
