The Galaxy S8 Android Pie update has been released in a few more European markets, following its debut in Germany earlier this week. Samsung isn’t rolling out the Galaxy S8 update as quickly as it has released the update for the Galaxy Note 8, and the reason is perhaps the fact that the company currently targets March as the release time frame for the Galaxy S8 Pie update in many markets. That’s not to say everyone will have to wait until March. Samsung has shown that it can release the stable Pie update for devices ahead of schedule, although the worldwide rollout is likely to take a few weeks to complete.
For now, those in the Netherlands and the Nordic countries should be able to download Pie over the air from the Software update menu of the Settings app on the Galaxy S8 or S8+. The software version is G950FXXU4DSBA and G955FXXU4DSBA for the S8 and S8+ respectively, and the update includes the February 2019 security patch. The download size is around 1.6GB. Android Pie firmware for the S8 and S8+ are also available in our database for those who would like to manually upgrade.
