We've been waiting for the latest Android Pie update for the current Samsung flagship like Galaxy S9 and Note 9 for some time, but Samsung is running the schedule in the US. Fortunately, it seems that One UI has finally started rolling out for some lucky S9 owners.
On January 29, Reddit users confirmed that the update was available to the Galaxy S9 at Xfinity Mobile, Comcast's MVNO. This was followed by news that the update hit the Verizon-branded Galaxy S9s on January 30. On February 1, AT & T and Sprint finally went to the party and left T-Mobile as the only major operator that has not yet issued the update. [1

As for the unlocked model (SM-G960U1), we have some bad news. While this unit would first get the single user interface, it will be the last to get the stable version. As Samsung has explained in the past, the update must be approved by all major US carriers before they will print it to the unlocked variant. This is done to ensure that the phone can work no matter what SIM card you use, but that means you have to wait for T-Mobile to run the update before you get it.
To see If a user interface has rolled out for your phone, open the Settings app and select "Software Update". From there, tap "Search for updates" and if available, just click "Download and install" to manually download the OTA. Due to the nature of staged excerpts, be sure to check back often if it didn't come up for the first time.
There is much to be happy with this new update. Samsung has updated the look of the software, added a brand new night theme, and much more. To see all the remarkable features, check out our collection of One UI articles on the link below.
