Galaxy Note 9 owners on Oreo can now update to Android Pie in Germany


Last updated: January 13th, 2019 at 09:03 UTC+02:00

Samsung finally released the Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie update for users on Android Oreo (those who didn’t take part in the Pie beta program), starting with the UAE and some neighboring countries. While it’s unclear if this will be the beginning of a wider rollout, Samsung has just extended availability of the update to non-beta users in Germany. The update is now available for download over the air.

Worldwide rollout incoming?

Germany was the first market where Samsung released the Note 9 Pie update, but until today, it was only for beta participants. Again, it remains to be seen if the worldwide rollout will be here soon. Samsung Turkey, for example, is now saying the Note 9 will get Pie on February 1 while it had earlier said the update would be out by January 15. We never expected Samsung to release the update everywhere before the end of January, but it would be disappointing if some countries have to wait until February or March even for unlocked units.

If you own a Galaxy Note 9, open the Settings app, tap Software update, then tap the Download updates manually option. The update is almost 1.6GB in size (with software version N960FXXU2CSA2), so make sure to use a Wi-Fi network or a data plan with enough bandwidth before starting the download. We’ll update our readers once the Android Pie firmware start showing up on our firmware database.

Have you received the stable Pie update on your Note 9? If yes, do tell us which country you’re in, and don’t forget to check out everything that’s new with the Android Pie and One UI update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9!

P.S.: This update does not bring Pro mode video recording or a schedule option for Night mode, if you’re wondering.
