Galaxy Note 9 gets new One UI 2.0 beta update
Packing a Snapdragon 845 and up to 8GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note 9 remains a powerful and relevant device nearly one and a half years after its August 2018 launch. In our review, we noted the Note 9's exceptional battery life and S-Pen productivity features.
At launch, the phone ran on Android 8.1 Oreo and subsequently received an update to Android 9 Pie. Samsung recently released the fifth One UI 2.0 beta update for the phone in South Korea. While a stable release isn't available yet, the One UI 2.0 beta brings Android 10 to Samsung's 2018 Note flagship.
The fifth beta update is very small, fixing just two outstanding bugs. The previous update was smaller yet, fixing just a single bug. This suggests that a stable Android 10 update will be ready soon, almost a year since the first One UI 2.0 update released.
Earlier versions of the One UI 2.0 beta rolled out in India, UK, Germany, and other geographies. While the 5th update is currently exclusive to South Korea, it will likely be available elsewhere soon.
