Samsung Android Pie update schedule for China revealed

The stable Android Pie release for the Galaxy S9/S9+ came as an early Christmas present from Samsung. The company had previously said that it would begin rolling out Pie to the public in January. The carrier locked variants will most likely be getting the update this month.

The update roadmap was sent out by Samsung through its Members app last month. It won’t be applicable to China though. A separate Samsung Android Pie update schedule has now been released for the People’s Republic.

Samsung Android Pie update schedule

Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note 9 owners in China can expect to receive the Android Pie update starting next month. The Galaxy A9 Star will get it in March. Samsung will then release Pie for the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8 in April. The Galaxy A9 Star 4G+ and the Galaxy A9 2019 will get it in that month as well.

As per this Samsung Android Pie update schedule, the update will be sent out for the Galaxy A9 Star Lite and Galaxy Tab S4 in May this year. The premium SM-W2019 flip phone gets it in August while the Galaxy A6s and Galaxy S Light Luxury both get updated to Pie in September. That’s also when the update is released for the Galaxy Tab S3 and the SM-W2019 flip phone. The Galaxy J3 and Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018) will finally get a taste of Pie in October 2019.

Based on the Samsung Android Pie update schedule released for other markets, it appears that users in China will get the update a month later for the same devices compared to users in other countries.

I need someone to solve a question please, the variant China (CHC) and Hong Kong (TGY) are compatible with the Mexico variant (MXO) or do they have any change that prevents their installation on my device?

“it appears that users in China will have to wait for about a month before those same devices get updated in the People’s Republic.”

What is People’s Republic ?

I think China and People’s republic are the same.
