After months of waiting, Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is finally receiving the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, more than a year since the OS was first released.
The OS is now rolling out to Galaxy C9 Pro users in India and as you’d expect, the update adds the new Samsung Experience 8.5 skin, replacing the old TouchWiz that came with Android Marshmallow. Other than the integration of Samsung Cloud and a revamped Device Manager, there’s really nothing much you get from the new Experience 8.5 skin. Still, you’ll notice that it’s a bit faster than the previous installation.
This update is rolling out over the air. As usual with OTA updates, the latest version will be rolling out in phases. This means that if the OS has just started rolling out, it could take days or maybe a week before all Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro users in India receive the OTA notification to download and install Nougat. If you can’t wait for the OTA notification, you can also do a manual update through Settings>About device>Download updates manually.
Since this is a major update, the file size is huge at close to 1.5GB, which means you’ll need a stable Wi-Fi connection in order to install the new OS. If you are using the Galaxy C9 Pro outside India, you can also try the manual update, otherwise, sit back and wait for the OTA notification, which shouldn’t take long to hit your phone.
