First carrier-locked Galaxy S9 Android Pie update rolling out in the US

The Galaxy S9 Android Pie update seems to be finally rolling out to carrier-locked devices in the US. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ on Comcast’s Xfinity network are getting the Pie update as we write this, and we should see more carriers in the US – especially the big four – start releasing the update in the coming days. It’s worth mentioning that the unlocked Galaxy S9 and S9+ don’t seem to be getting Pie just yet, but that shouldn’t be the case for long, either.

You can check if the update is available for your device from the Software update menu in the phone’s Settings app. The update will show up on its own at some point, but that can take some time so it’s best to manually check. If the update isn’t available over the air, we have the Android Pie firmware for the Comcast-branded Galaxy S9 and S9+ in our firmware database (S9 | S9+) that you can flash using a Windows PC to get on Pie right now.

The update brings with it the January 2019 security patch. For details on what features and changes Android Pie brings to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, check out our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series.

What type of info are you looking for? If it’s just the anticipated upgrade date, I doubt anyone knows, and I was truly surprised to see the update on my S9 ahead of other carriers. If you’re looking for info about how Pie is faring on Xfinity, it is doing well for me so far, including night mode, navigation gestures, and everything except for the icons I’ll eventually replace.

My opinion on this topic, I think that samsung I must update all their phones and leave the operators aside, since the operators are the last ones to update the high-end phones, and so the users stop spending both time and time. operators that are not transparent with customers

Samsung need to cut the cord with the carriers, that’s the reason why us here in the states have NOT seen the update its not purely because of samsung, SAMUNG NEEDS TO PUT ITS FOOT DOWN AND BYPASS CARRIERS, we payed for this devices the same amount of money that those outside of the states, we have to deal with carrier bloat and even with that we still are always left behind with updates year after year due to this mess, samsung is the biggest Android manufacturer and should be able to do something about it, there is literally NO… Read more »

US Unlocked phones would be the last to get the updates. I think Samsung just uses these unlocked phones for beta testing. Don’t worry they will someday send the updates when they please or are done with S10 release may be.
