Although many of the American carrier variants of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 have already received the upgrade to Android 9 Pie, users with unlocked variants have been left out in the cold. That is, so far: it seems that Android 9 Pie is now being rolled out to unlocked devices in the US (via 9to5Google).
The update brings with it the usual Android 9 Pie upgrades, the new One UI from Samsung, as well as the Android security patch from March 2019.
Users on various Samsung-related subreddits were the first to report the new implementation, with a number of screen shots of the 1.5GB update notifications. View them below:
While it is certainly exciting that those of you who keep the unlocked versions of Samsung & # 39; s flagship 2017 will get a sweet taste from Pie, it might be wise to postpone an upgrade, at least for a short time. The reason for this is that some users of network variants encountered certain LTE problems when their upgrades were implemented. If this update has the same issues, it might be a good idea to wait and see.
If you have received this Android 9 Pie update and have problems (or everything goes smoothly), let us know in the comments!
