From the look of the things, the South Korean giant is now pushing hardware to roll out the latest Android Pie update for their older mid-range phones. As per the latest report, the company is now rolling the Android Pie update for the Galaxy A8+ 2018 owners in Russia. The update is being rolled out for the A8+ 2018 even ahead of Galaxy A7 2018. Those who are unaware the company was running Android Pie beta program for the A7 but the company rolled out Pie initially for the A8+.
At the moment it is still in the dark whether the update will be initially rolled out for the Russian users only or the company will roll out an update for the other regions in coming weeks. Another important aspect is whether the update will be rolled out for the standard Galaxy A8 or not. As being an OTA update it won't be rolled out to everyone on the very first day instead it will take a few days before reaching out to everyone.
The latest update also brings the February 2019 security patch. If you don't receive an update notification in the next few days, you can checkout manually as well by going into Settings menu >> Software update >> Download update manually.
