Samsung announced One UI at the Samsung Developers Conference earlier this month where they introduced One UI to the world, however, thanks to the folks over at XDA we got to check out leaked Android 9 Pie builds for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 before the Samsung made the One UI name official.
At the Developers Conference, Samsung stated the rollout for the beta version of One UI would begin from November 15. Keeping to their word, the company has started seeding the beta update via OTA to registered beta testers.

Currently, the One UI Beta version is only available in a handful of countries. For starters, the update is available in the US with Sprint and T-Mobile Galaxy S9/S9+ devices and the update is also available for beta testers in South Korea and Germany, the latest to join the party.
If you aren’t from any of these regions, then there’s no reason to be disappointed since the One UI Beta update is most likely to be available in other countries as well before the end of the month.

Samsung has confirmed the global release for One UI for the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note 9 would be in January 2019. What’s also great is that Galaxy S8/S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 users would be receiving the One UI update as well albeit a fair bit later than the S9 lineup of devices.
