Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Android 9 Pie update was supposed to begin today. However, refreshed listing of the Galaxy Note 9 on Samsung-affiliated Turkish Guncelmiyiz website reveals that the South Korean company has delayed the Pie update to February 1.
At the end of December 2018, the Turkish site had previously mentioned January 15 as the Android 9 Pie update release date for Galaxy Note 9 users. The Note 9 owners in Germany have already started receiving the latest version of Android.
However, the updated listing of the Note 9 on the same website reveals that the Android 9 Pie update rollout will begin on February 1. It is not clear whether the date is Turkey-specific or wider markets in Europe. The listing states that the Android 9 Pie update is at the testing stage for Note 9.
Samsung will be releasing its new One UI with Android 9 Pie update for the Note 9 users. The smartphone was announced in August 2018 and it came preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo OS. The Android 9 Pie will be arriving as the first major software update for the Note 9. The smartphone features a 6.4-inch S-AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, Exynos 9810 / Snapdragon 845 chipset, up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. It has dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, 8-megapixel selfie snapper and 4,000 mAh battery.
The Pie upgrade for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ has already been released recently. Users of S9 and S9+ who installed the Android 9 Pie update have experienced battery draining and Bixby assistant related issues. Hopefully, Samsung will be ironing out such problems before making the update available to Note 9 and other smartphones. Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to receive the update on Februray 15 whereas the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are also expected to receive Android 9 Pie from the same date.
