[Poll Results!] Android 9.0 Pie is official: Any bets on when Samsung will first release the update?

Android 9.0 is Pie, as Google has now made official. Android Pie is set to roll out to Pixel devices today, just around two days before Samsung will take the stage in New York to unveil the Galaxy Note 9. It’s as we feared: The Galaxy Note 9 will be launched after Android 9.0 has been released, though it’s not like this isn’t something we expect every year when a new Note flagship arrives. And Android Pie isn’t a huge upgrade like Oreo was, so it’s not as exciting, either.

Android 9.0 Pie: When is Samsung bringing it to Galaxy devices?

But that doesn’t mean Samsung can rest easy. The Galaxy S9 is likely to be the first phone to get updated to Pie, with possibly a beta program for various countries before the official update is released. Whether Samsung will take as long as it usually does or bring this year’s major Android upgrade sooner remains to be seen (we’re hoping for the former thanks to Project Treble). But, just for kicks, we here at SamMobile thought we should ask our readers to place their bets on when they think Samsung will release the Pie update for any of its devices.

Of course, we can’t actually start betting here, but that’s where this poll comes in. So go ahead and vote, then tell us your thoughts in the comments. And do check out if your current Galaxy devices is eligible for the Android 9.0 Pie update (this list isn’t final, but we have taken a guess based on Samsung’s history with major updates).

Results: 33 percent of voters think Android 9.0 Pie for Galaxy devices will come sometime between January and March next year. 31 percent think it will come after March 2019, and we have an inkling that some of these voters are those who know Samsung won’t release the update in all markets immediately even if the rollout begins before March. 5 percent of voters say the update could come out in September, which is wishful thinking. 5 percent voters don’t want to guess, while 4 percent say they don’t really care. The rest believe the update could come out sometime in the last three months.

Place your bets: When will Samsung release the Android 9.0 Pie update?

Samsung already has everything this garbage, poorly named update is trying to offer. Even Huawei has these features.

What a joke.

The better question when it will reach every variant. Samsung have one of the biggest fragmentation with their CSC over 9000 variants. For me they will soft release it around feb-march, but will be only for a small variants of their s9/s9+ and who knows when they will release it for all of their s9/s9+ phones (not to start for note 9 and s8/s8+).

Usually new Android OS updates rolls out between Feb – May for flagship smartphones, followed by mid & low end devices after May.

I’m sure it’s going to be late as usual, we haven’t even got 8.1 Oreo update for the S9+ yet here in Canada, if we even get it at all.

Samsung doesn’t release the x.1 updates for flagships, only x.0

We’re in August – I can’t remember when Oreo landed last year but it must be quicker than last year’s

Without doubt, March 2019. Beta will be available to S9 and S9+ by December 2018. Note 8 should expect it around May to June 2018.

So far Project Treble has not proven to be of any help, in fact, some S9 units haven’t even properly received all monthly security updates since their release like they were supposed to. I really really doubt S9’s going to get Android P this year. My best guess is February 2019 (and that’s optimistic considering that S8 first got Oreo in March this year, and not February)

Project Treble only streamlines a part of the process, which is to enable Qualcomm, Samsung itself and other electronics companies to keep the drivers up to date.
Making Android (as well as monthly patches) reach the handsets still remains Samsung’s work.

I would like to say that I don’t really care, but the battery drain on my S8 has been so incredibly bad since the Oreo update. I hope that the P will help. (not holding my breath though)

Sounds like you need to do a factory reset. My battery is just fine with galaxy s8. I get 30 hours battery life from my s8.

Does Project Treble mean anything about as since monthly updates ain’t even on time. Not moaning though.
Just remember:
TRY NOT TO BE TO OPTIMISTIC, THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL MAY BE AN ON COMING TRAIN. 😀

I don’t really care. My S9+ is working perfectly fine with Oreo.
