Now here’s a nice little Christmas gift from Samsung for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners. The stable Android Pie update is apparently rolling out to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in Germany. Yes, Samsung had said the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie release would be in January, but there’s no reason the update couldn’t come out earlier. And, surprisingly, the update seems to have been released for those on Android Oreo and not just beta testers.
Fastest rollout of a major Android upgrade from Samsung
The software version for the final update is G960FXXU2CRLI and G965FXXU2CRLI for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ respectively.
We don’t currently have screenshots for the update and We have confirmation from just one of our forum members that the update is available, but the new software version can be seen on Samsung servers for both the S9 and S9+. We’re doing our best to get more details and to find out whether the Galaxy Note 9 is receiving the update as well.
In the meantime, if you’re a Galaxy S9 or S9+ user in Germany, do check for the update from the Settings » Software update menu by tapping the Download updates manually option (Download and install for those on the Android Pie beta). Do tell us if the update is available for you by leaving a comment.
Update: The Android Pie update now seems to be available for both Oreo and Android Pie beta users. We also have the complete firmware available for download from our database.
