(Pocket-lint) - When Samsung launches its Android 9 Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 smartphones next year, it will also overhaul its Samsung Experience user interface.

Leaked screens show Samsung Experience 10 - taken from a beta build - which will be pushed to phones at the same time as the OS update.


They come from an anonymous user, who sent them to Android Police after managing to download the beta to his or her Samsung Galaxy S9+.

They show a smarter design with a completely new font throughout. As the Android-centric website points out, it looks like Google's own Product Sans typeface and is rounder and more friendly.

Everything looks cleaner, including the quick settings panel, and more reminiscent of straight Android 9 on the Pixel phones.

There's no actual date for the Android 9 beta yet, but it is thought to be coming to supporting Samsung devices in early 2019: "Android 9 Pie update is expected to roll out to Samsung Galaxy phones early next year," the company confirmed earlier this week.
