If you own a Galaxy Note 9 and you've been envious of your S9-touting friends who have been running the Samsung One UI beta, then today's your day; Note 9 users in Germany, India, and the United States can start downloading the beta today.
To receive the firmware update, you'll need to have registered for the beta program through the Samsung+ app on an unlocked Galaxy Note 9. Registering doesn't guarantee you an immediate download, but should you receive the update, it'll come as part of the firmware build N960FXXU2ZRKQ.
Along with the redesigned One UI that's slated to officially roll out sometime in January, you'll receive Android 9 Pie and the November 2018 security patch.
In case you're not up to speed on what all One UI brings to the table, we have a comprehensive guide breaking down all of the most important changes. It's a pretty significant change from the Samsung Experience we're used to, and one we're excited to spend more time with once it rolls out officially.
