Samsung Galaxy S9, S8, Note 8, and Note 7 Fan Edition with Android Pie spotted online

14 November 2018 4

Samsung has a reputation for releasing great flagships but it is also notoriously well-known for its not-so-good software support. It is known for being too slow when it comes to upgrading devices to newer Android versions. But this is exactly what Samsung seems to be working on changing as a bunch of flagships running Android Pie have been spotted online.

These flagships include the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 8, and even Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition. All of these devices were spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website which showed each of them's model number and Android Pie as the software.


This suggests that Samsung has either just started testing Android Pie for its flagships or it is close to releasing the same for everyone to use. The most interesting name in the list is obviously the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition which was launched last year. It was an improved version of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 with a few changes here and there. It received its Android Oreo upgrade earlier this year and with an upgrade to Pie, it is likely to be the end of upgrades for the phablet.

As for the Wi-Fi Alliance listing, this is pretty much what it reveals for now. It is hard to say when exactly Android Pie upgrade will be released but it is good to see Samsung making efforts for a quick release. It recently unveiled a new One UI aimed at improving the overall user experience and making it faster. It seems like the software side of things are finally going to see significant improvements from Samsung's end.
