Samsung has finally released Android 9 Pie beta for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in select markets. With the Pie update, the Korean giant is ditching the Samsung Experience UI in favor of One UI, a new minimal user interface that will become standard on devices like the Galaxy S10 and foldable smartphone next year.

The One UI-based Android Pie update brings a number of new features with system-wide dark interface being the most promising feature. One neat feature coming to your Galaxy smartphone with this update can be seen inside the Gallery application. After updating to Android Pie, the Galaxy S9 users will have an option to trash an image instead of permanently deleting them.

Samsung is bringing a recycle bin option to its Galaxy flagship after the Android Pie update. It works similar to the bin in Google Photos or recently deleted option on Huawei‘s flagship devices. Now, when you delete an image from your smartphone, it won’t be deleted permanently and instead stay in the trash or bin for 15 days. Samsung says this trash will be automatically emptied after 15 days.

Most other services automatically delete images after 30 days. While Samsung is storing images for much less period, it is good to see that the company is finally embracing a feature that has been there on rival platforms for far too long. The feature gives a peace of mind that your accidentally deleted image is still available to be restored in the trash bin.

In the new gallery app, the trash bin can be accessed by tapping the three-dot button in the Pictures tab. It is not accessible from any of the other tabs of the tab, Sammobile reports. There is a possibility that Samsung is still testing this app and make trash can accessible from other places as well when the final software is released in January.

The gallery app will suggest you to turn on the trash option when you try to delete something for the first time. It can also be enabled by heading to the Gallery app’s settings menu. To recall, the trash feature is already available on Android Oreo but it is only limited to images synced to Samsung Cloud. Considering the limited storage capacity of Samsung Cloud, the feature did not mean a lot to users.
