Sprint rolling out Android Pie for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8

The Android Pie update for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 has finally arrived for carrier-locked users in the US. Sprint is the first mobile carrier to roll out the update in the country. T-Mobile could follow Sprint soon as it has begun testing Android Pie for all three devices.

Update contains March 2019 security patch

Galaxy S8, S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 users in the US are finally getting the taste of Samsung’s new One UI, thanks to Sprint rolling out the Android Pie update. The update, along with the One UI features, also brings the March 2019 security patch. The latest security patch for Samsung devices contains fixes for several bugs, including eight critical vulnerabilities found in the Android OS.

The Android Pie update for the Galaxy S8 is rolling out with build version G950USQU5DSC1 and weighs 1628.37 MB. The update size for the Galaxy S8+ and the Note 8 should also be somewhat similar. To update your device, head over to the Software update section of the Settings app and tap on Download updates manually. If the update is not yet available for you, please be patient as the rollout happens in stages.

I like the update so far, I wish the message app would allow you to change the background but, the Pie version does not. We’ll all have to use the theme store now. The gesture features are awesome, especially the 3 buttons on the home screen. you can now swipe them to get the results you need without seeing them.

I received my update this morning about 6:35 am Eastern and I am still playing around with it to see if I like it. It’s sleek but, seems to have more of a old school feel. I will update what I think about it in a few days. As of right now, it’s okay.

These comments are funny. Everyone knows the US update cycle starts with Sprint/T-mobile, then moves on to the smaller ones like US Cellular. AT&T/Verizon bring up the rear. Finally, after all the major carriers are done, Samsung updates the Unlocked US models.

When is Sprint ever first at anything? Usually they’re 3rd, just in front of Verizon. I’ve been with Sprint for about 17 years, way too long.
