Android 10 was released in September, but so far, it's only been available on Google's own Pixel devices. Usually, it takes other manufacturers some months to catch up, however, as promised, Samsung has released a beta of its Android 10-based One UI 2.0 for Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e devices. The program is now rolling out in South Korea, Germany, and the US, according to SamMobile.

The One UI 2.0 OS features a blend of Samsung's features like smaller notifications and "enhanced Dark Mode" that adjusts the brightness of images and text at night, along with Android 10 perks like the new Focus Mode.

The app is supposedly available for folks with an unlocked phone or a contract with Sprint or T-Mobile. To find out if you have access, head to the Samsung Members app and check for notifications. If you manage to get it, you'll be far ahead of Galaxy S9 owners who wanted Android 9 "Pie" last year. That app didn't hit beta on Samsung devices until November 2018, four months after it was released.
