BREAKING: Stable Galaxy S8 Android Pie update released in Germany

Samsung is now rolling out the official Android Pie update to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The rollout has begun for users on Android Oreo in Germany it seems, but we can expect it to be available for those who are part of the Pie beta on their S8 and S8+ as well. Just how soon Samsung will bring the update for Oreo users to other regions remains to be seen. Many markets are expected to get Pie on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in March, so it’s likely to be a slower process compared to the Note 8’s update.

The Galaxy S8 Pie update is available over the air and is a 1.6GB download. The software version is getting bumped to G950FXXU4DSBA and G955FXXU4DSBA for the S8 and S8+ respectively. The Galaxy S8’s stable update comes with the February 2019 security patch, like the Note 8’s. Those who are on the Pie beta are already aware of the changes and new features that are part and parcel of Android Pie, and those who are going to be upgrading from Oreo can find out what’s in store in our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series.

To download the update over the air, open the Settings app on your phone, go into the Software update menu, and tap Download updates manually. We also have the Android Pie firmware for the two devices in our firmware database in case the OTA isn’t available for you. Do tell us if you’re seeing the update in a country other than Germany (or getting a smaller update that moves you to the final Pie release from the beta).

Thanks for the tip, Subas!

Who promised this? S8 and Note8 don’t have compatible hardware for Dual LTE. Software cannot change this. I doubt somebody from Samsung promised this.

For the people that don’t know, you can simply download the firmware and install it with Odin. Currently using it on my galaxy S8+.

Regards from the Netherlands 🙂

No OTA for people on the official beta program in the UK. 😂

Let us test the beta and be guinea pigs, and when the official release is out, we won’t even be the first to get it, what a joke!
