[List] Official Galaxy S9 Android Pie update available in these countries


Last updated: January 16th, 2019 at 15:17 UTC+01:00

The stable and official worldwide release of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ Android Pie update kicked off earlier today. Samsung chose Germany as the starting point, but the update is now beginning to show up in other markets as well. As with all major upgrades, Pie will be released in stages and the list of countries where the update is rolling out will grow bigger and bigger in the coming days.

To make it easy for you to see if Android Pie is available in your country, we’ve put together that list below and will be constantly updating it as and when we learn about another country getting the update. You can help out by telling us in the comments if you have the update in a country not on the list so we can add it in. And remember, this list is for countries where the update has been released for all Galaxy S9 and S9+ owners, not just those in the Android Pie beta program.
