Android 10 edges nearer for the Samsung Galaxy S9 as One UI 2.0 enters its third beta
The Galaxy S9 is getting a new beta build of Android 10 before the year is it, and its second this month. The new build, called FXXU7ZSL9, is a 365 MB download and has already started hitting devices in India. GSMArena expects Samsung to push the update to other regions soon, citing the swiftness with which Samsung released the last beta globally as evidence. The changelog for FXXU7ZSL9 is as follows:
- Samsung Pass fingerprint bounces on the Internet
- Fixed mic position feature to support screen recording
- Fixed the blur issue when split-mode
- Updated Samsung apps
The third One UI 2.0 beta for the Galaxy S9 also includes the January 1, 2020, Android security patch. Incidentally, this could well be the last beta build for the Galaxy S9, as it is due to start receiving stable builds of Android 10 next month. If the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are anything to go by, then this will likely be the last major OS upgrade the Galaxy S9 receives too.
The new beta should arrive as an OTA. Please keep in mind that the build is unlikely to be Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) certified either, so Google services like Google Pay will not work. Moreover, while this new beta should contain fewer bugs than the last one, it will likely not run as smoothly as the stable version of One UI 2.0 will.
