The rollout of the Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie update is beginning to pick up steam, with the update released in Germany and the UAE (and some neighboring markets) in the last few days. The update was initially available over the air, but we now have the first Galaxy Note 9 Pie firmware available in the SamMobile database. The firmware is for the UAE (software version N960FXXU2CSA2), and you can expect to see firmware for other markets in the coming days.
The Note 9 Android Pie update has taken some time to arrive compared to the Galaxy S9 update, and it is also more limited in availability at the moment. While Samsung had set January as the target for the official Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, the schedule may spill over into February in some countries, especially for the Note 9. It may not necessarily be a bad thing if folks have to wait, though, since Samsung seems to have left a number of features out of the update in an attempt to push it out as quickly as possible.
In any case, you can now download the Android Pie Note 9 firmware from our database. We’ll keep updating this post as and when the update arrives in other countries; in the meantime, check out what you can expect from Android Pie on your Galaxy device and also see how it compares visually to Android Oreo.
