Surprise! Samsung is delivering the latest Android OS goodness to owners of Galaxy S9 and S9+. Spotted by SamMobile, the rollout of stable Android Pie update has begun today.
It means that Android Pie is finally out of beta for these devices. The update carries version name G960FXXU2CRLI for Galaxy S9 and G960FXXU2CRLI for Galaxy S9+.
Android Pie for Galaxy S9 features the OneUI which Samsung showcased last month. It’s an approach to UI which Samsung believes it more natural and convenient. OneUI is tailored around giving users access to important menus where they can easily reach one-handed. Android Pie also brings gesture navigation, providing a more fluid experience.
The rollout is for the international versions of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that carry model number G960F and G965F, respectively. Unfortunately, we do not know when carrier-locked and US-unlocked variants will receive it, but it shouldn’t be long now.
It’s was a surprise rollout if you know how painfully slow Samsung’s update schedule is even for the flagship devices. Compared to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, this is much faster. Galaxy Note 9 is also currently in beta and we can expect the final version to drop in January.
