Samsung has now rolled out stable One UI with Android Pie to the Galaxy S8/S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 on all major US carriers and unlocked models

One UI is the newest version of Samsung Experience, the company’s own take on the Android mobile operating system. It has a huge amount of changes that focus on creating a great user experience for those using bezel-less devices. All of the non-interactable UI elements like headers and other text are relegated to the top of the display, while functional aspects are lower and easier to reach. This type of layout accommodates one-handed usage so that users don’t feel that bigger displays are harder to use. An update to One UI also means an update to Android Pie. We saw the company roll out a beta for unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 devices in the US, but now it’s rolling out for devices on the stable channel too on all major US carriers.

An update to One UI doesn’t just mean that you get all of the new One UI features and designs, but that you also get Android Pie’s improvements too. That includes Adaptive Battery amongst other features, so device owners will notice a huge difference after upgrading in both visible and under-the-hood changes. You can check out a timeline of releases for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 across carriers below.

All of these updates are rolling out to devices now across the US, and have been since the dates of their release. The update comes with the March 1st 2019 security patch, which means that your device is protected from all of the latest exploits as well. If you haven’t gotten the update yet, be aware that companies roll them out on a staged rollout basis so that if there are issues, it can be canceled and the damage caused can be minimized. Let us know if you got the update!
