The world's first quad-camera phone is getting Android Pie earlier than expected
Samsung is quite stingy with details about Android updates, especially when it comes to mid-tier phones. However, that doesn't mean that we don't get inside info on what's to come from the South Korean company.

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), the world's first quad-camera smartphone, has been tipped to receive the promised Android 9 Pie update in April, but it looks like Samsung has decided to kick off the rollout a month earlier, SamMobile reports.

For the time being, the update is only available in Poland, which suggests a wider deployment will start in April. Until then, we expect the update to be released in other European countries where the Galaxy A9 (2018) was officially introduced.

The Galaxy A9 (2018) is one of Samsung's few smartphones that can be considered a flop. Due to an unrealistically high price and a faulty camera, the Galaxy A9 (2018) seems more like a rushed product rather than a well-thought device.

To learn more about the quad-camera phone and why it's so bad, we strongly recommend reading our in-depth Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) review.
