Samsung posts Android Pie update roadmap in Members app

Samsung sent out an early Christmas present today by rolling out the stable Galaxy S9/S9+ Android Pie update ahead of schedule. The company has now posted a notice in the Samsung Members app to highlight the Samsung Android Pie update roadmap. It’s going to be a long road ahead for many Samsung device owners. The rollout of Android Pie for the company’s devices will go well into the coming year.

Samsung Android Pie update roadmap

We have already discussed the devices that are set to receive Android Pie in our first, cautious preview of Samsung’s Android Pie roadmap. The notice posted today mentions many of the same devices with the expected launch timeframes. It still mentions that the Galaxy S9 will receive Android 9 Pie in January 2019. That will most likely be true for the carrier-locked variants of this handset.

Going by this Samsung Android Pie update roadmap, it seems that the Galaxy Note 9 may not receive Android 9 Pie before February. Samsung had initially promised to release the update in January next year. However, it’s possible that the unlocked variant might receive it next month. The carrier variants may get it in February 2019.¬†Devices due to receive Android Pie include the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9, Galaxy J4, Galaxy Tab S4 and others.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are not on this list. The sole reason being that the devices have already received two major OS updates.  Android Oreo was the last major platform update for these devices. Samsung is gradually rolling out Pie for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in markets across Europe today. The update is also being sent over-the-air to those who were on the latest beta firmware. The firmware files are available for download from our database as well.

I’ve opened my Samsung Member app and my Note FE is there (Indonesia pie update roadmap), planned to be updated on March 2019.

I did some research online and saw the most recent roadmap, if all goes well the J7 2017 (duo and mono SIM) and also the mono SIM, should receive the update in July 2019. While for the J7 2017 Pro, not therefore, at the moment there are two solutions: the update is planned but at a later time, or the map is incomplete. Second solution, there is no update but I have many doubts about it, considering that many versions of the same J7, will receive the update. At the moment it is a maybe, I will let you know… Read more »

Will Samsung j5 2017 get the pie update please somebody tell me?????? In uk

I read the last roadmap given by samsung in the app samsung members, it is unfortunately not the J5 in the list maybe because even if released with Android nougat 7.0, and then it is updated to android oreo 8.0, also received a minor update android oreo 8.1, perhaps for the samsung a slightly increased version of the previous version (8.0), and as a great update. The J3 in the last one, not only the J7 appears … an advice? the J2 will receive it in April 2019, if you will not get anything for that month or maximum, the… Read more »

J5(2017) owner here, J5 2017 didn’t get 8.0. It got 8.1.0 directly.

I read some sites, and even on the samsung site confirm, the J5 2017 will not receive android 9 pie. Having already received an “important update”, as mentioned before android oreo 8.1.0. I’m sorry if you have doubts, or questions ask as well

I asked the samsung support for information about the android 9 pie update for galaxy A6 +, they confirmed to me that they will receive the update in Q2 2019, they do not know if they will also receive the One UI. The same speech I believe is also valid for A6. However, both should also receive Android Q, at least in my opinion since they were marketed, with Android hours out of the box. So even if they do not appear on this list, those who own one of these two devices can feel comfortable. As a holder of… Read more »

Interesting the Indonesian roadmap, because in addition to including the Galaxy J5 2017, evidenced that the Galaxy J3 2017 and the Galaxy J7 2017 of the German roadmap are (or may be) really the SM-J330 and SM-J730 respectively (I was betting that it was SM-J327 and SM-J727, which maybe will be contemplated, too).

Also note the presence of the A6, A6 + and J8, which did not occur in the German roadmap (something that could not understand).

There shall be an update for NoteFE too which shall then easily ported to Galaxy S7/S7 Edge.

My phone works. It makes calls, it sends messages. I’m in no rush to get Pie. My Note 8 is stable. Why the rush?

Ok, I talk to a Samsung rep in Germany. He said that he believes Note9 pie will come in very early January or maybe even just before New Years day. I have Pie on my S9 plus. It is great . I switched it to night mode and it looks so good. I hope you Note9 people and other devices get it soon! Good luck..

Andrei603

I didn’t get it… S9+ from Romania… Hope it comes here soon

How about the Note FE?

utvic99
utvic99

I think they’ve given up on it, and there are two reasons for that:
1. there are only 300k units of it
2. many people complained about S7 not getting Pie when Note FE would get it

They didn’t want to risk breaking their own update policy to their own disadvantage. What company would ever do that if there was no pressure from customers (such as, massively boycotting Samsung phones in favor of other Androids/iPhone)? It wouldn’t make them any profit, in fact they would lose some money because people would choose to keep their still good S7 for another year or two.

VIRGIN KLM

…and because of the big internet uproar with Note FE receiving Pie but not S7/S7E, Samsung decided to pull the plug on Note FE update as a whole. I’m laughing, so cheeky! I got confirmed.

S8 in March just when the S10 comes out.

If only I could’ve upgraded to the Note 9 this year. I wouldn’t have to wait till March to even have a chance to see Android Pie on the Note 8.

Yes. I just checked again this morning and it’s not there. I don’t want to say it’s fake but it may be for another region like Canada or the US. Or maybe the notice hasn’t reached us yet. Hopefully we’ll have it sooner, I’m guessing mid January at the latest for unlocked phones. With carrier phones you never know as they can be very slow.

Let me get this straight J3 2017 and j7 2017 are eligible for Android Pie but j5 2017 isn’t? If samsung are doing this because j5 2017 has android 8.1.0 oreo samsung thinks it’s okay to leave it on 8.1.0 oreo as it is newer version of it but the other two devices have 8.0.0 oreo which makes it eligible for android pie how is that fair?

meyemmabasso
meyemmabasso

Same thing here with A5 17. It says it isn’t eligible, but I received tons Time Zone Updates. I think it might be elegible but I don’t know in what time I would I get Pie.

fcaroll
fcaroll

May this list be incomplete? It would be interesting to know if Pie is in the works for the NoteFE given that it received the wifi certification a little while ago along with the newer flagships (of course Pie for the NoteFE would also mean easier porting to the S7)

AGalaxy7
AGalaxy7

The A6 and A6 + are missing in that list, and if they update until the Xcover4 and J3 2017 they also have to add to the J5 2017 that shares much of the J7 2017

A6 and A6 + will receive the update in Q2 2019 the others do not know
