The listing on the website shows these three models running on the Android Pie. It’s possible that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphones may get the OS update along with the Galaxy S9 series and Galaxy Note 9 in January. But these ninth generation of Galaxy smartphones will get Samsung's new One UI later this month. Samsung’s One UI will be based on Android 9 Pie. The new UI will also come to older flagship Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy S8 family of smartphones.

Samsung is currently accepting beta sign-ups for the One UI. The beta will be available in China, France, Germany, India, Poland, South Korea, Spain, UK, and USA. With the introduction of One UI, Samsung is looking to make single handed operations on its devices a lot easier. Users will see common operations that rested on the top of the display at the bottom and will be able to reach critical actions.
