Android 9 Pie along with Samsung’s latest One UI user interface is now available for Galaxy Note 8 users in Malaysia. The One UI interface was developed for the Galaxy S10 and is now available for Note 8 users too.

If you’re a Note 8 user, make sure you download the new firmware as this will be the most significant update you can get for your device. It’s is such a major update that the interface on your Note 8 will look and feel completely brand new.

In addition to One UI, the Android Pie update brings a few other goodies as well like Adaptive Battery which is a feature that learns your usage patterns and adapts the device’s power usage and battery management accordingly. One UI also comes with the option to set a systems-wide night mode where the background and most design elements of the interface are presented in a dark colour to further save battery.
