samsung galaxy s9 one ui review apps

It looks like the Android Pie update may now be rolling out to the carrier-unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9 in the U.S. The update has been spotted on Redditat PhoneArena, and via a tip from one of our readers (we couldn’t verify the claim, but the evidence is mounting).

The update has been for the S9 standard as well as the Galaxy S9 Plus, with the latter update coming in at more than 1.7GB. It includes the January 2019 security patches and updates the OS to the latest version of Samsung’s Android skin, One UI. You can find out more about what exactly that offers in our hands-on coverage here.

Sometimes these updates roll out to a small set of users before a wider rollout begins a while later, so treat this with caution until we learn more. If it is the real deal, however, it would bring a close to the major U.S. Pie rollouts for these devices, with T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint having also deployed the update recently.
