After beginning the rollout of their Android Pie update for the Galaxy Note 9 in Germany earlier this month, it appears the update may be delayed in other markets.

The reports have surfaced thanks to revised date estimates on Samsung’s wholly owned Turkish portal Guncelmiyiz, which shows an the update due to rollout from February 1st.

The planned rollout for the Android Pie update, which also includes the newly announced OneUI was originally planned to begin rolling out to users from January 15th.

The dates outlined on Guncelmiyiz are specific for Turkey, however appear to be indicative of Samsung’s global update strategy. The local carriers here in Australia show no Android 9.0 (Pie) update listed as in testing for the Galaxy Note 9, with a December security patch the most recently approved update.

Galaxy Note 9 in Germany have already received the full Android Pie update over the past couple of weeks which has apparently gone well as no major issues have been reported. There’s likely some reason for the delay, but it doesn’t seem to be a prolonged one. We will keep an eye out any further updates as they come to hand.

I checked yesterday morning at work & pie update was available, wanted to wait till I got home so I could download over WiFi. When I got home however, the update was no longer available. They must have pulled the update sometime yesterday.




It’s rolling out wider than Germany with unbranded devices in Australia.
I think you need to do more research and update your article.


More info: In my Samsung Members app under notices, it says that Pie will be coming in Feb. Can anyone here who has received Pie confirm whether their Notices state the same?

No matter how many times I check for an update, I’m left wanting.
