Android Pie update rolling out for Galaxy J4, Galaxy J4+ and Galaxy J6+

Samsung is racing to the finish line with the Android Pie update. The company has added two more budget phones, the Galaxy J4+ and Galaxy J6+, to the list of Galaxy devices that have been updated to Pie. The Galaxy J4+ is receiving the update in Vietnam, Thailand and Ukraine, while the Galaxy J6+ is being updated in Germany, Iraq, and India.

Android Pie for Galaxy smartphones brings a new look and feel for Galaxy phones thanks to Samsung’s new One UI interface, which puts important information front and center and makes it easier to access with one hand. There’s also plenty of new functionality and minor improvements included in One UI, many of which we have covered in detail in our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series. The April 2019 security patch is included in the updates for both devices as well.

Something to be noted here is that it’s not often that Samsung pushes a major update for a smartphone to multiple markets in the initial release. Perhaps this is a one-time thing, but it’d be great if it becomes a norm. And going by the improvements Samsung has been making to its software update game, we wouldn’t be surprised if this starts happening more often in the coming months.

Download Android Pie over the air or use our firmware database

Galaxy J4+ and J6+ owners in the countries mentioned above should open the phone’s settings, navigate to Software update, then tap the Download updates manually option to grab the Android Pie update over the air. Updates are rolled out in stages, so don’t worry if it doesn’t immediately show up and simply try again after some time. For the impatient folks, we have the full Android Pie firmware available in our firmware database so they can upgrade right away.

Update: The Galaxy J4 is also receiving the Pie update; it’s currently available in Panama.

Because the support of android on samsung is only 2 years, so.. the j5 prime launched with android 6, and updated to 7 and 8, so its finished the updates for this phone. And he launched on 2015, and the galaxy j4 launched with oreo in 2018.

When will the Galaxy A6 recieve the pie update?
I feel like every other samsung phone under the sun has recieved it already.

the normal A6 should have received the update a month ago at least according to the news circulating on the web and based on the roadmap released by samsung

Key word… SHOULD, but didn’t. Even plasticky J6 have an update, and lower tier J4’s. As far as I know, A6 should be the 1st mid end phone, that should get Pie update, but probably it’d be last 😛

I don’t think that the A6 will receive only an important update when several A and J of past years have always received two according to me, they will receive android Q both A6 and A6 + less likely to receive them J because this line no longer exists for samsung
