Early 2019 release for Samsung’s Pie update suggested once again

We first heard a possible time frame for Samsung’s Pie update from the company’s French Samsung Members community. In a post about possible changes to expect from Pie, a community moderator had suggested that we would have to wait until January 2019 before the Pie features and changes would reach users. That time frame has now been reiterated in a post on the Samsung+ app.

Samsung Galaxy Pie update isn’t coming before 2019

Early 2019 release for Samsung Galaxy Pie update suggested once again

The Samsung+ post talks about some of the general Android Pie features, such as Adaptive Battery, new emojis, and Actions and Slices, instead of what we can expect from Samsung’s customizations and additions. But it mentions a similar time frame for when we can expect the update to roll out to Galaxy phones. Well, “early next year” could mean anytime from January to March, but January will hopefully see at least some markets get the update. We know Project Treble might not be of much help, but that doesn’t mean Samsung shouldn’t be trying its best to release Android Pie as quickly as possible.

The Samsung+ post doesn’t mention a specific device, but the Galaxy S9 is sure to be updated first. Samsung will kick off a Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta program in the near future, allowing us to test the new Samsung Experience 10 UX. Samsung Experience 10 will bring a new dark theme for the entire OS, along with features such as Scene Optimizer in the camera app and an updated Always On Display look. You can see an early Android Pie build running on the Galaxy Note 9 in the video below to see the kind of changes to expect from the next major version of Android on Galaxy devices.

There will be bo android 9 updates before galaxy 10 will be released.
That’s one of the factors to push the sell up.
Some months after s10 release they will start updates other phones.
Same every year

Not really. The S8 got the update to Oreo before the S9 came out and the year before, the S7 got the update to Nougat before the S8 came out.

Waiting for the update from long time. Where is 8.1 for s9+ we should take samsung to court why they skip 8.1. Did we not pay to get 8.1? If 2 year upgrade is covered why to skip minor upgrades??? This week j7 got 8.1 and s9 and s9+ on 8.0!!!!! And we have to wait till next year for 9.0. Then they will skip 9.1 coz 9.1 fixes some bugs and improvement and i m sure samsung will skip it.

8.1 is not really important at all and the fixes of 8.1 is already present on 8.0 on Samsung phones

Project Treble is just a big BS!

Project Treble BS

I don’t mind waiting as long as I know I’m getting features I’ll see in Android Q.

I’m tired of Samsung. This is unbelievable, such a big company and they just can’t update their flagships the same year Google release a new android update. My S9+ is the last phone from Samsung. I’ll buy the Pixel 4 next year or the Oneplus 7. Bye bye, Samsung.

So, for you it’s fine, but not for me and for many people out there. For you, it’s OK, that Samsung, which is the leader in the global smartphone market, just can’t be one of the first to update their flagship devices, no man, they are always the last on this regard. And now, that you mentioned it, even Oneplus, which is a small company just updated the Oneplus 6 to android Pie. Project treble, what’s that?

Yikes! Releasing timely android version upgrade has always and will always be the problem for samsung.
And yet, you still have the latest S series phone.
That tells me, you’ll still get the S10… S11… and so on…

If there’s one thing that’s BS, it’s google’s android version upgrade. They call it upgrade with just a couple improvements with new UI looks for every version.

No. I’ll buy the Pixel 4 or the Oneplus 7 next year. This is my last Samsung device.

I really don’t get people like you.
Samsung already has most of the features and more that exist in Android PIE. Also, Samsung’s UI is much more feature rich and more intuitive than Google’s vanilla Android so what’s the rush. If you don’t agree then switch to Pixel or get a phone from a different OEM and you’ll quickly realize how much more advanced Samsung’s Android is.

So, you’re saying that it’s OK to wait so long cuz Samsung don’t care about updating their phones quickly because they has all the features? At least with a Pixel I know I’m getting new android updates first and don’t have to wait until Samsung finally wants to update thir devices. Man, every year it’s the same with this company and it’s a shame this keeps happening and people don’t even care. I like Samsung, but I’m done with this.

Who said that Samsung doesn’t care! Who said that Samsung doesn’t want!
Samsung is working too hard in its ux but it takes too long. We all wants it first but it’s not that easy
