Official Android 9 Pie update could roll out for the Galaxy Note 9 as early as January 15
While Samsung isn’t exactly known for its blazing fast software updates, the stable Android 9 Pie rollout for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ has kicked off a little earlier than expected, at least in a few select markets around the world.

There are no prizes for guessing which of the company’s recent high-end phones is next in line for an official Pie-flavored One UI makeover, but even though Galaxy Note 9 users were told to expect the update in February 2019 just a few days ago, a different timeline might still be on the table.

According to some freshly discovered information on a website officially linked to Samsung’s Turkish arm, the Galaxy Note 9 could follow the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on the stable Android 9 bandwagon as early as January 15.


The OS revision is still in the testing stage, so the rollout date might be subject to change, but we haven’t heard much in terms of Pie-derived bugs and glitches on the S9 and S9 Plus, which is certainly good news for Note 9 owners.

Obviously, even if the January 15 deadline holds up, a few more weeks will be needed for the stable Android P goodies to expand worldwide. Then, on February 15, the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, and S8+ could simultaneously receive their own over-the-air 9.0 software packages, at least in Turkey and a handful of other regions. 

That’s definitely an ambitious Android Pie release schedule, with devices like the Galaxy A8, A8+, A7, and A9 (2018) expected to follow suit in March or April 2019.
