It has been a few months since Google released the source code for Android 9.0 Pie but even now not many phones have been updated to the latest Android version. The Android Pie update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 timing was leaked just the other day and now it seems to be arriving for some users.
When we saw that the Android 9.0 update for the Galaxy Note 9 was expected to arrive in January of this year most of us expected it to be late January, if we were lucky. For Samsung though it seems January just means January and have today begun rolling out Android Pie to the Galaxy Note 9.
At this stage the update is rolling out in Germany, and not just to those in the Android Pie beta program. The new update, in Germany, has the software version of N960FXXU2CRLT so we expect that to be similar here in Australia but most likely with localised baseband etc numbers/letters. When Pie is cooked for Australians head into the software update section of your Note 9 and “Download and install” the update.
The new update not only brings the Android 9.0 Pie goodness under the hood but also a new UI, One UI, from Samsung. Samsung are looking to the future with their One UI, bringing easier single handed use as well as a few other handy bits and pieces.
At this stage it is unknown when users outside of Germany will see the update. We will be reaching out to Samsung Australia over the weekend to find out when users here should expect to see it arriving on their devices and will let you know more as soon as we hear anything. If you see it arriving on your Galaxy Note 9 hit us up and tell us all about it.
