    Keen not to be left out, Sprint has started rolling out Android 9.0 Pie for the Galaxy Tab S4 in the US. The move comes a mere matter of hours after a near-identical release began arriving on the T-Mobile-branded model of the slate, and a week after it was released for the standard Wi-Fi variant.

    To be more specific, the Android 9.0 Pie upgrade that's making the rounds is skinned with Samsung's One UI interface and bundles a slew of new features, including a Night mode that's easier on the eyes in the evening and can be triggered to extend battery life when you're running low on juice.

    The update also bundles improvements for Bixby and support for HEIF images, as well as a new Adaptive Battery optimization tool and improved notification management. For a more detailed overview of what One UI brings to the table, be sure to check out our One UI Feature Focus series.

    Sprint, like T-Mobile, is pushing out the update, in stages. To see if it’s available for your device, head into Settings, navigate to Software update, then hit Download updates manually. Alternatively, you can always download the firmware from our database to flash it on to your unit manually.
