Samsung confirms Android Pie update roadmap for Galaxy S8/S8+, Note 9, other phones
Samsung has just kicked off the roll-out of Android Pie for Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, although the update is only available in several countries. However, if you have another Samsung smartphone that you think it qualifies for an Android Pie update here is the company's roadmap as published earlier today.

Spotted by SamMobile, the timeframes for these updates are mentioned by the South Korean company in the Samsung Members app, but there's no word on which region will get it first.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is scheduled to receive the update in February 2019, not in January as we originally thought. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come next in March, along with the Note 8, while the Galaxy A8/A8+, A7 2018, A9 2018 and Galaxy Tab S4 10.5 will get the update in April.

In May, Samsung plans to release Android Pie updates for the Galaxy J4/J4+, J6/J6+, and A8 Star. Then, Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 and Galaxy J7 Duo will be updated to Android Pie in July and August, respectively.

Three Samsung devices will get the update in September: Galaxy Xcover4, Galaxy J3 2017, and Galaxy Tab S3 9.7-inch. Finally, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2017, Galaxy Tab Active2, and Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inch are the last to receive the update in October 2019.

Even though these are official timeframes, the dates can change at any time if Samsung feels that the update is not ready for release. Some updates may even be canceled, so don't get too excited if you don't own a flagship smartphone.
