Last updated: March 20th, 2019 at 14:16 UTC+02:00

Samsung is expanding its Android Pie rollout for the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) to more countries. After Russia and India, the update has now hit the European continent. Germany and The Netherlands are the two new markets where the Galaxy A8 is receiving the Android Pie update.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) was Samsung’s first mid-range phone to receive the Android Pie update. The update brings Samsung’s One UI interface, which comes with tons of new features, though not all of them will be available for the A8 and other mid-range phones.

The update weighs around 1400 MB and is available over the air. The software version is A530FXXU4CSC6 (it may vary from market to market). The update in Europe also packs the March 2019 security patch. In Russia and India, the update came with the February 2019 security patch.

To download the Android Pie (One UI) update for your Galaxy A8 (2018), go to the settings on your phone, tap Software update, and then tap Download updates manually. We’ll update this article once we have the firmware for the update available in our database.
