Samsung has already started testing Android 10 on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The brand is trying to deploy a stable version as soon as possible. The Android 10 beta with One UI 2.0 will be available in the next few days but will start with the S10 and Note 10 series.
Samsung is working to deploy Android 10 early on its update-compatible smartphones. According to SamMobile, the OS beta with One UI 2.0 should be available in early October on the Galaxy S10, or even on Note 10. Samsung’s latest flagships are indeed in the front row to receive Android 10, most likely before the end of the year as in 2018 with Android 9.0 Pie on the Samsung S9. Those who still own this model should be delighted to learn that Samsung is testing the new version of Android.
Android 10: Samsung optimizes One UI 2.0 for Galaxy S9 and S9+
The information comes from GalaxyClub, a Dutch site which is always on the lookout for Samsung-related scoops. The site confirms that Android 10 is already being tested internally on Galaxy S9 and S9+ with firmware versions named G960FXXU7DSI3 and G965FXXU7DSI3 respectively. The fact that Samsung is testing the OS so early on these one-generation models is an exciting sign.
Last year, the first signs of Android 9.0 development for S8 and S8+ were identified much later during the year. There is, therefore, a reason to believe that the Galaxy S9 will receive Android 10 reasonably soon. However, nobody knows if a beta will be opened in the next few days for this model. This was the case last year for the S8 series, but well after the Galaxy S9. Finally, Samsung has not yet released a schedule for its smartphones, nor confirmed which models will receive the update.
