After months of beta testing, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now getting the last and final beta version of the new One UI. For the uninitiated, One UI is the revamped version of the company's own Samsung Experience UI and is based on Android 9 Pie.
For the Galaxy Note 9, an updated software roadmap revealed that Samsung plans to release the final version of Android 9 Pie for the Note 9 in February 2019, but the beta rollout today suggests it could arrive as early as next month.
The update weighs in at 331 MB and includes a number of bug fixes. Along with that, it also includes elements from the January security patch. This is very interesting considering that Google's devices are usually the first ones to receive security updates.
In terms of other fixes, the update makes improvements to the Samsung Notes app, which had an issue where it would just cease to function.
It also fixes a problem where users were unable to unlock the screen and turn off the screen at the same time.
In addition to that, it fixed an issue where the search function did not appear in the Dialer and Contact windows. It also addresses a ‘Screen Touch is restricted’ issue and other system UI crashes that popped up.
There is also an improvement to the front/back switch in the camera preview, which some users found sluggish. Also, the changelog says that the update does have a known issue where the home button force touch function does not work if gestures are enabled.
