Who does not love refresher? Samsung's upcoming One interface makes it easier to use your device with one hand and adds a fresh touch to the formal "Samsung Experience" case. While you're probably looking forward to installing One UI on your phone, not all Galaxies are equivalent – your device may be one of the first to receive the update, or it will never show One UI.
To be clear, a UI is not yet officially available on a Galaxy device. Samsung devices are known to be slow to receive Android updates, so even Oreo runs on the latest Galaxy phones, unlike the Android Pie update that drives One UI. Of course, if you get impatient, you can download the Android 9 beta. The open beta version is not quite there yet, so you'll need to add a little more elbow lubricant for your S9 or S9 + Pie to run.

Carrier versions issue their own updates instead of Samsung taking over. Unlocked devices are not delivered to any particular carrier, so they are usually updated first.
Galaxy S9 / S9 +
If you opted for the Galaxy S9 or S9 + over the 9 mark, do not set that. Do not worry – these devices will receive the update at exactly the same time as Note 9. Unlocked Devices will receive the update in January, with the support variants following it.
It pays to be up to date Even though the grade 9 is newer than the S9 units. Galaxy Note 8
Galaxy Note 8 owners are not as happy as 2018 flagship users. While Grade 8 will not be available until 2017, Samsung has no official One UI release date for last year's Phablet.
That being said, we can guess that Grade 8 will get a One UI shortly after S9, S9 + and Grade 9. Based on Samsung's track record with updates, the possible owners of Note 8 will be launching a UI in the second quarter of 2019 ,
Galaxy S8, S8 + and S8 Active. While Android Oreo is running on all three devices, Samsung has no official date on which One UI will use these phones. However, as with Note 8, it is expected that the update will follow soon after the 2018 series of Galaxy devices, possibly the 2nd quarter.
Other Galaxy Phones
Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to upgrade a phone every one or two years as older phones work today into old age. The downside, however, is that after a few years, OEMs like Samsung stop updating their phones. Therefore, we do not expect the following Galaxy phones to receive a One-UI, although we have the option to:
- Galaxy S7
- Galaxy S7 Edge
- Galaxy S7 Active
- Galaxy Note 7 is no longer supported)
- Galaxy S6
- Galaxy S6 Edge
- Galaxy S6 Edge +
- Galaxy S6 Active
- Galaxy Note 6
As for midrange phones used in the past two or two Two years ago, we are sorry to say you will probably never see a UI. The cost of these devices is so low that Samsung can not justify that a software development team updates the firmware.
