Against expectations, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is previously to Android Pie update than the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The Samsung phablet will be updated in February while the S-devices are due a month later.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie update earlier than expected
Just before the end of 2018, Samsung announced when the Galaxy phones are updated to Android 9.0 (Pie). In the original version of this roadmap, it was indicated that the Note 8, S8 and S8 Plus will be updated in February 2019. Samsung has now adjusted this.
Owners of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus have to wait a month longer. Their phones will be updated in March of this year. There is nothing wrong with Note 8 owners: the Pie update is ‘just’ released in February. The news is striking because Samsung normally first updates flagships from the S-line before the Note-series is next.
This is in an updated version of the Samsung Android Pie roadmap, which appeared in the Members app just before Christmas. It is, therefore, possible that the appearance dates vary from country to country. For example, the Note 8, S8 and S8 Plus in Turkey are still on the nomination to be updated for February. In addition, the release date can change at any time.
Do you have another Samsung Galaxy?
Apart from the previous release for the Note 8, the planning of Samsung has not changed. This means that the Galaxy Note 9 will be updated in February. After the S8 and S8 Plus in March, the Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A7 (2018) and Galaxy A9 will follow in April this year. Wondering if your Samsung is being updated, and when?
