Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Android 9 Pie + One UI Update!

by birtanpublished on May 15, 2021

Over the past two years no toners have been forced to watch with envy as galaxy s phones have gotten early access to Android updates to Samsung's beta program no people who were so samsung's most enthusiastic fans had to wait months more for the official release of Android new Tenorio to drop but no more this year note line owners in a handful of countries can get an early look at Samsung's biggest software update in years so here it is Android 9 Pi and Samsung's 1 UI running on the galaxy note 9 let's dive in the first thing to get to grips with in this beta is that the note line is on roughly the same

Software track now as the Galaxy S 9 with updates rolling around every few weeks so that means just as the galaxy s 91 UI update is being finalized in many countries we're seeing very close to final beta software here on the notes don't expect too many drastic changes anytime soon that said a few things have changed since we first saw one UI in beta form on the s9 plus for example all Samsung's apps now conform to your Lite mode settings so if you're using the lighter system theme the gallery app will be light not always dark like it was before same deal with pretty much

Every single built in Samsung app test switching has grown this predictive app area down below similar to the Google pixel 3 and certain minor cosmetic bugs being cleared up like the blur effect from the notification shade sometimes not being shown correctly you get the idea everything is a lot more polished and closer to final 1 UI on the note has the same major UI pillars that we saw back on the s9 plus the main thing it adds is easier one-handed navigation for larger phones and that's a big help on Samsung's largest flagship phone ever

For a phone like the note that feels so much bigger even than the s-line plus having the stuff you're supposed to interact with clustered at the bottom of the screen and the stuff that you're supposed to look at up at the top makes a lot more sense and this over scroll animation that brings the top part of menu items into easier reach continues to be one of my favorite features in one UI there are a few areas where this falls down though like the folder view in the launcher which is still pretty terrible for one-handed use the in general to be honest it's mostly

Unchanged with the same backgrounds in wallpapers only the weather widget has undergone any kind of real overhaul here the new gesture navigation system is here too and with a screen as big as the note lines it's great to be able to dedicate the entire thing to your apps and content if you want to the new gesture hints feature at the bottom of the screen is a neat halfway house if you want to make those swipe targets a little easier to hit of course there is also a significant change to the way the UI looks compared to the old Samsung experience with fewer drop shadows and

Wireframe icons one UI has its own brighter color palette that focuses on brown buttons and icons and big chunky easy to identify shapes what hasn't changed is the way the s-pen works and feels you've got the same drawing and writing and pointing functionalities you had back on Oreo only now it's some different looking UI elements you can use the s-pen with a new gesture controls as well by the way but doing so feels a little bit weird kind of seems like there should be some sort of secondary navigation setup that you can use when the s-pen is out general

Performance seems snappier on the new version of Android which also benefit from all the little tweaks and improvements that Google has baked into Android 9 pie check out our pie review video for more on what's new at the OS level and of course we also shouldn't forget Bixby including Bixby home which now conforms to the new one UI design language and is a lot snappier as well finally there are some subtle changes to the camera UI though this is less sweeping than what we've seen on the S time Plus and actually as far as the functionality

Goes it's pretty much the same as the note camera that we already know and love the main changes are to the zoom toggle which now works with a swipe and the AI scene detection which you can turn off at any time by tapping this icon so there's a lot to look forward to here in one UI and Android 9pi on the Galaxy Note line and Samsung's schedule has the update rolling out from January 2019 that's it for now check out our 1 UI video on the s 9 plus for more detail on the minutiae of Samsung's latest software and subscribe so you don't miss the upcoming Android goodness in 2019
