Samsung revises Android Pie update schedule for Galaxy S8, also adding Galaxy M20 and M10
But things seem to be progressing surprisingly quickly, with stable Pie-flavored goodies already available worldwide for the Galaxy Note 9 in addition to the Galaxy S9 and S9+, and public beta tests underway on the Galaxy Note 8, S8, and S8+.
There’s reason to believe those beta programs are also making solid advancements of their own, based on a newly revised Android Pie OS update schedule. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are now expected to receive official updates by the end of next month, as is the Note 8.
Previously, the Galaxy Note 8 was slated for a February switch from Oreo to Pie, with the S8 and S8+ projected to follow suit in March. Similar changes have been made for several other devices, including the Galaxy Tab S4, Galaxy A6, A6+, A7, A8+, A9, J4+, J6, J8, and Galaxy Tab A (2017), all of which should score their next big OS promotion earlier than initially anticipated.
But perhaps most intriguingly, the unreleased Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 are today making their debut on Samsung’s Pie OS update roadmap, targeting August UI makeovers. That’s... far from ideal, considering the visual flair of these two impending mid-rangers.
This also confirms the notched Galaxy M series will hit stores with an outdated Android build pre-installed around six months after Google first distributed Pies for its in-house Pixel devices.
Of course, you’ll have to keep in mind software updating plans are in a constant state of flux, especially for an always busy device manufacturer like Samsung. But if the current aim is to release Android 9.0 for the Galaxy M20 and M10 in August, it’s probably wise not to expect any movement on that front before July at the earliest.
