Original coverage, March 2, 07:57 a.m. ET: Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Android update hub. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest Galaxy Note 9 updates, including its current version, and when future updates are likely to arrive.

Galaxy Note 9 update

  • Current stable version: Android Pie
  • When will the Galaxy Note 9 get Android Q? March – April 2020 (estimated)

The Galaxy Note 9 arrived with Android Oreo on August 24. It started to receive Android Pie, the latest version of Android, in February. Android Q is expected to be the last major software update it receives.

Based on Samsung’s recent updates, the phones should receive Android Q within seven to eight months of Google releasing the final version (Google is expected to release Android Q around this August). This would represent roughly the same timescales as we saw with the Galaxy Note 8, which launched with Android Nougat, receiving the Android Pie update. We’ll let you know when we learn more.
