After leaking out a couple of times in recent months, Samsung’s One UI 2.0 will finally be going into public beta testing soon.
Samsung has confirmed that its One UI 2.0 beta test is starting “soon”, announcing the news in its official online community today (via SamMobile, @Jtinseoul). The update will be based on Android 10, and initially it’ll be offered on the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e.
There’s no word yet on exactly which regions the beta will be offered, but it’s likely that it’ll start in South Korea. Samsung offered a One UI 1.0 beta test in the U.S. and some other parts of the globe, so we’ll likely see a similar rollout for the One UI 2.0 beta test.
To enroll in the beta test, you’ll need to register through the Samsung Members app. The beta test will likely be limited, so you’ll need to be fast once registration opens up.
Past leaks have suggested that Samsung has several changes in store for its One UI 2.0 update. Those include the new gesture navigation system that Google added to Android 10, like swiping from the left or right edge to go back and swipe up from the bottom to go home. Also expected to be included with One UI 2.0 are updated Quick Settings tiles, moving the large clock and date found in One UI 1.0 to make room for more Quick Settings tiles, and some Note 10 features that are coming to the S10, like native screen recording.
