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.
Users on Reddit have confirmed that the major update is available for the Galaxy S9 on Xfinity Mobile. Comcast's MVNO is not a major US operator, but the fact that the update is available to at least one Snapdragon variant of Samsung's 2018 flagship is a good sign for other US users. So far, only the Exynos models of the Galaxy S9 have received the official, non-beta update.
There is no word when the update comes to be available to those who have AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon variants of the Galaxy S9, but today's news is a good indication that we can be cautiously optimistic about a February release timetable for these devices.
To have a One-user interface unrolled 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 the rollout, be sure to check back often if it did not arrive 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.
