After the release of Android 9 by Google, now it is the turn of the other manufacturers to adopt the update to their models. Samsung is one of these and, judging by the screenshots filtered, is already immersed in the development of Samsung Experience 10 with Android 9 Pie for the Galaxy S9. An update that promises, at least at first glance, a big change in the graphical interface.
Project Treble has significantly accelerated the updating of smartphones. In fact, at this point brands like Sony, OnePlus or Nokia have already launched updates based on Android 9. Now, according to the tracks that come from XDA, we know that Samsung is one of the brands that is immersed in the process of adopting the new version of Android to one of its flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Android 9 Pie in a Galaxy S9
These tasks initiated by the software department of the manufacturer have not gone unnoticed. So much so, that there is already evidence of the first test on a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, although referred to the version with Snapdragon processor and not Samsung Exynos. In fact, from XDA they promise an installation guide very soon.
However, the most succulent information today is in charge of a series of filtered screenshots that show in great detail the aesthetic changes that will be applied to the Samsung Experience 10 interface with Android 9 Foot on the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Broadly speaking, the common factor is the adaptation of the interface to the new style imposed by Google in Android 9. In each and every one of the screenshots that have appeared on the Net, you can see how all the corners appear rounded, with much softer contours. We repeat, a clear influence of the design of the interface printed by Google on their smartphones and the version of Android 9 Pie itself.
With regard to novelties and aesthetic changes, Samsung Experience 10 lets you see news such as a redesigned section for quick adjustments, with rounded icons that now occupy the entire screen.
The notifications and the lock screen itself show renewals, such as the relocation of the clock or the font style. Similarly, icons for quick access to camera and phone apps have been replaced by colors. Multitasking also varies ostensibly, both in design and functionality since apps are now listed on a side carousel.
Dark mode, the night theme for the Galaxy S9
Another of the great innovations that can be seen in the new version of the graphics interface, Samsung Experience 10, is the introduction of a night mode. Actually, based on the explanations collected by the XDA guys, it seems to indicate that it is a theme called Night that darkens all the backgrounds with the color black. Another novelty properly related to the dark mode for the Samsung Galaxy S9 is the possibility of adjusting its programmed activation – at a predefined time – or automatic activation depending on the time of day.
Adaptations in the most important apps
Not only do we see differences in the system interface, but Samsung Experience 10 based on Android 9 Pie will offer us an update and adaptation of the design of apps like Contacts, Messages, the Bixby assistant, Email, file manager, Samsung Internet, camera app and gallery.
In all these, we appreciate the renewal of the interface to adapt it to the system, in addition to other developments in what the camera software is concerned.
Android 9 Pie will be the version responsible for introducing touch gestures in the Google system, although Samsung plans to include their own. So we can see it as an advance in an animated gif, where you can see the operation of these on the home screen, as well as the section from the settings menu from which you can activate and configure.
The Bixby Home app also got a new UI. It is very similar to other applications that use Samsung’s new design language. It has curved borders and night themes, and Bixby Home updates don’t have any new features, but these features will be available soon.
Samsung Mail, Gallery, My Files, Samsung Internet, and Camera App
Samsung Mail, Gallery and Camera apps have been updated. The email application updated the same fillet. This seems to be one of the few applications that don’t support nighttime themes. This update did not add any new features.
Availability of the update
The leaked event does not reveal information that allows us to know Samsung’s plans for the update schedule for their reference models. However, the filtering of screenshots of Samsung Experience 10 makes clear that the development of the firmware is underway and its official launch will be conditioned to the results of the tasks facing the team of engineers from Samsung.
