Samsung confirms it will announce Android Pie Beta program as soon as this week

Samsung teased its foldable phone earlier today by switching its profile photo on Facebook to a Samsung logo in a folded shape. We imagine this might be in anticipation of an imminent announcement, believed to take place during Samsung’s 2018 Developer’s Conference scheduled to take place on November 7-8.

On the same note, Samsung’s official Developer’s Conference app reveals notes about a “New Galaxy UX” that is coming with Samsung’s Android 9.0 Pie Beta Program. This comes just over a week after new screenshots of the allegedly leaked build of Android Pie running on the Samsung Galaxy S9.

Samsung has held Beta Programs on other Samsung devices in the past but usually kept it closed to a limited number of participants. So if you’re looking to join the Beta, make sure you check the news throughout Samsung’s Developer Conference. Normally, Samsung holds Beta Programs in South Korea, the United States, and the UK at the very least. Of course, rules and eligibility for participating will vary by region.

Alleged changes to the Samsung UX include a new overall look in the Settings and menus, a brand new dark mode, updated interfaces for first party apps like dialer, messages, clock, and calendar, as well as new full-screen gesture navigation support.
