Here is good news for the U.S. unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 users. Samsung has finally launched the One UI beta for the unlocked Galaxy Note 9 in the US. The One UI beta program is already available for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in France, Germany, Korea, the United States, and other regions.
Thus far, we have seen that both Sprint and Verizon users running the U1 firmware were able to sign up for the beta program. It is possible that other carriers will be supported soon, but for now, only the unlocked firmware seems to be able to sign up.
XDA member Nochlab1 managed to share screenshots of the sign-up page of the One UI beta from the latest Samsung APK+. Samsung is now letting U.S. unlocked Galaxy Note 9 users sign up for the One UI beta. If you have a U.S. unlocked Galaxy Note 9 (SM-N960U1) or are willing to flash to that firmware, you may be able to sign up for yourself.
