The Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note 9 will not receive Android Pie this year
Android Pie has been available to the public for months now. The current iteration of the Android OS has failed to reach any notable percentage of the Android userbase since then, though, and it would seem that will go on for a while longer. Samsung is the biggest smartphone company in the world, and its Galaxy S and Note flagships are usually some of the best-selling smartphones around. The company has confirmed that the devices will receive the Pie update, but not until January next year.
This isn’t much of a surprise, in any case, as Samsung is usually one of the slower OEMs in terms of OS updates. It’s also important to note that the update in question here is the stable Pie update; the beta Pie update will be sent out this month—with some sources claiming a November 15 date for the opening of the Pie beta program.
The update to Android Pie also isn’t a regular one, as it’s one that will grant users access to One UI, Samsung’s brand new user interface.
