Firmware

Worldwide rollout of Galaxy S9 Android Pie update has begun!

It has begun, folks. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are now getting the official Android Pie update in quite a few markets, suggesting that the worldwide rollout has started in earnest. The update is out in various regions at this point, and it should only be a matter of time before the rollout completes for most countries.

As always, carried-locked devices may have to wait longer than unlocked units, and some markets will see the update come out in February for unlocked models as well. The best way to check when your country is expected to get Android Pie is to open the Samsung Members app on your S9 or S9+ and check the notices section for the Android Pie upgrade schedule. You’ll see the expected time frames for most devices eligible for the Pie update here, not just the Galaxy S9.

To check if Pie is available for your S9 or S9+, open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then select the Download updates manually option. An alternate way to upgrade is by downloading the Android Pie firmware for your country from our firmware section (Galaxy S9 | S9+). You can also use Samsung Smart Switch on a Windows or Mac PC.

Android Pie for Galaxy devices brings a new user interface that’s designed to make one-handed usage easier and allow you to focus on the task at hand. There are plenty of new features included in Pie, and you can find out more by checking out our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series of articles.

Serbia 01.02 ,unlocked SM-G965F still no update.Samsung also removed notice about Pie update from Members app.

This article is inaccurate.

Today is January 22nd and the update still hasn’t reached KSA.

Absolutely discouraging by Samsung considering the update has been very slowly rolling out over the last 3 weeks but nothing here in KSA especially with the fierce efforts lately by Chinese manufacturers to establish a presence and overcome Samsung’s share in the largest middle eastern mobile market.

Bueno, tengo un S9 de jazztel libre y mi operador es simyo y a fecha de hoy no me ha saltado la actualización a 9.0. Al ser libre me debería haber saltado la actualización ?. Me descargado la versión PHE desde sanmobile para España en el momento en que funcionó la aplicación Samsung Pay. Que me aconsejais que haga? Gracias

World launch? or maybe you wanted to say “Launch only for the SM-G960F version”

To this day, I have not seen an update to “Android 9” for the SM-G9600 model in any region, or am I wrong?

If it were a global launch it would be for all the models, in that case if it can be said that it is a global launch

They only make users excited to have One UI for their false information.

More simple than that…

ONLY the Exynos series devices are getting their updates. ALL the Snapdragon users are sitting here being ignored. And not just a little ignored but a lot ignored. Canada is now 2 months out on security updates and the US is a month+ now…

So THE largest market (US/Can)… Nothing… Thanks Samsung…

Serbia 🇷🇸 joines the club!
What they have excluded from PIE and it DOES bother me:
– no phone maintenance from edge panel!
– no call stickers
That’s all!
Happy using!

Ouch I use that maintanence panel a lot. Are you sure it is not only disabled by default and can be re-enabled later? Thanks for the heads up! btw no update to this date in Slovakia for my S9 plus. btw It is pretty clear that Samsung will loose to Huawei with almost 100% certainty acting like this no matter how good the S10 will be. Yes, you can use German ROM from Christmas update but it is more a matter of principle. You payed a lot of money to be the last in the line………
