Samsung is constantly updating its 2018 flagship smartphones to the latest versions of Android Pie. The smartphones in the list include Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and the Galaxy Note9. At this time, the rollouts are available in 16 countries around the Globe. A recent update is now hitting the Galaxy S9 and Note9 in India and South Korea.
That’s not all! There is a catch as right now the Indian users that are part of the beta program are receiving the updates. With that said, there is nothing to worry about, as we’ve seen a similar pattern in Germany. The update will get a wider availability short after. On the flip-side, the users in South Korea will receive the update regardless of the user being on official Android Oreo or Beta Android Pie.
Once a person updates the handset with an official build of Android Pie, the software on the Galaxy S9/S9+ will bump up to G96xNKSU1CRLL or G96xNKSU1CRLN. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note9 owners should get on N960NKSU2CSA1 in South Korea.
For the Indian users, the Galaxy S9 duo must get on the software version G96xFXXU2CRLO. The Galaxy Note9 users must get on firmware version N960FXXU2CSA2.
Depending on your region the updates may weigh of different sizes. The Galaxy Note9 in India is getting around 134MB patch, the one in South Korea weighs 1.6GB. The latter being a complete update from the Android Orea, the patch is for the OTA update.
