Will the beta only work with BTU or XEU versions of the phones software? Tried looking and cannot find anything on this? Tia

According to online info the Beta us due later in November and in certain countries. 

 

A recent thread here > Galaxy-S9-S9/How-to-apply-for-pie-beta.

 

The link supplied by Samsung in the above thread > how-do-i-participate-in-beta-programme  

 

Is for the UK so a person would need to check their own countries Samsung Help pages for participation.

I've heard that it'll be available from the 15th for applicants but the 20th for the download. I took part in the S7 beta but my phone had to be BTU.

Thanks. So I guess that even if you have the BTU, H3G, or even XEU CSC versions of the phones then it doesn't matter. Took part in the S7 beta a couple of years ago and you had to have BTU for it to work but there's no mention of it this time round.

This is what I've found out about the beta testing programme.... please do not troll me I'm sharing this info I got from tech support at Samsung. 
I hope this helps... Enjoy ..... 
45One UI is the unique user interface for Galaxy phones, reflecting the signature look and style of the Galaxy brand. The One UI Beta Programme is owned, managed and operated by Samsung independently in order to provide better experience and reliable software based on user feedback. To join the beta testing you will need to download the “Samsung Members” app from the Galaxy Apps or Play Store. Then submit the “Galaxy Beta Program” application form through “Registration of One UI Beta Program” in the notice. As long as customers meet all the participation criteria, the registration process will be completed.
20:40:35I would like to note that the Android Pie Beta Programme is currently being release in the United Kingdom and the device able to participate is Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. The release would be on 20th of November 2018.
20:41:51The notice is not in the app I've checked and checked again?
20:43:16I take it the notice will just appear in the notice section and I have to check on the 20th ?
20:44:22That is correct, S. After registering for the Beta programme, you can update your software through the settings menu on their Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus. The programme is free to all Galaxy S9 users. However, it is recommended that customers download and update software when connected to Wi-Fi. It would best to wait until 20th of November to do the update since its still not being release.
20:47:05So let me confirm the Beta testing for Android Pie will include the new One UI together and the notice / invitation to join the beta testing programme will appear in the notice section of the members app I'm taking to you through now ?
20:48:26I then fill the application in and then wait for the OTA download through software updates on my handset ?
20:48:46And it's defiantly on 20th November?
20:50:12I am very greatful for your honesty as rumours are flying it's the 15th November???
20:50:16That is correct You can see all our information on our website which is https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-do-i-participate-in-beta-programme/ . I could not access the website you have provided earlier
20:51:13Thank you very much for your valued time and honesty
