For the past couple of years, we have complained about Samsung not updating its flagship devices fast enough. However, this year, the Korean Giant promised to roll out Android Pie (v9.0) update on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus in January next year. That itself was a good thing, but to our surprise, Samsung has already started rolling out the Android Pie update to the two smartphones.

Users from various countries and regions have reported receiving the latest from Google. So, it could be only a matter of time before the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus users from Nepal get to experience Android Pie on the devices.

With this update, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will also feature One UI as Android Pie has ditched the company’s Experience UI for a faster and user-friendly UI.

The update file is itself a pretty large measuring at 1744.24 MB. The Android Pie upgrade also brings in various updates to the system and applications residing on the device.

Apart from One UI and Android Pie features, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will also come with a wide range of other improvements. They will now need just an HDMI cable for DeX while Bixby has some of the latest features. Likewise, the Camera will intelligently detect the scenario to apply the perfect settings. There are also other new and improved features which you can view in the changelog below.

The new update makes Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus the first smartphones from Samsung to receive Android v9.0 Pie update. Its second flagship of 2018, the Galaxy Note 9, is still running Pie’s beta version, and will probably receive the new software next month. Samsung recently earned praise for updating even the older phones to Android Oreo.
