The latest Android Pie 9.0 update has been launched worldwide in recent months in the form of beta updates. Samsung has been very busy recently with the launch of various devices such as the Galaxy Note 9 Flagship and the Galaxy A8 Star. The Samsung Galaxy Android 9.0 update release list below mentions all of the handsets that will most certainly receive this update in due course and those that won’t be upgraded to Android P.

Samsung also provided regular security patches for the Note, S, A, and C series and was at its peak when it came to monthly fixes. So, with this track record, you’ll get something similar and for big OS updates, if Project Treble is implemented, we can see Samsung delivering updates much faster. However, note that devices launched before 2017 and 2016 have very little chance of reaching Pie Android portions.

In addition, talking about lower-level Samsung devices, they have very little chance to see Android Pie, because none of the last years has been updated. And some leaks in the Galaxy J series suggest devices running on Android Nougat. Even though it’s launched with Oreo, Samsung is not renowned for updating its entry-level and budget devices.

Apart from that, do not expect to update Android Pie soon, except at the end of 2018 and early 2019. There is not even 10% of devices running on Android Oreo 8.0, and even less 8.1. However, all new high-end Samsung devices launched in 2018 will ship with Android Oreo 8.0 with the experience of Samsung 9.0. So, no product can be bundled with Android Pie, unless it’s called the pixel name.
