Displaying a far quicker schedule in bringing the software version updates this year; Samsung says it is rolling out the upgrades to the Android 10 OS on its Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices released in early 2018. The upgrades are slated to be sent OTA in February and therefore can happen anytime soon. The rollout will not be universal. The first territory to be taken up for the software upgrade is Germany. In the US, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ customers of Xfinity Mobile alone are getting the upgrades now.
An Improved Software Version Update Program from Samsung
It has been consistently reported that there has been a far better system adopted by both Google and smartphone manufacturers in updating the software version from Android Pie to Android 10. Google had made the beta version of the new OS available to device manufacturers to help them build their respective user interfaces. Samsung has been able to have its One UI 2.0 up and active much before the normal time taken for such upgrades. It, therefore, gives satisfaction to see the 2018 phones getting their second software upgrade to the Android 10 OS.
It’s a Large File; Keep the Space in Your Device
The update will see the One UI 2.0 and the Android 10 software being sent directly to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices. The size of the update file ranges between of 1.8GB to 1.9GB. Ensure your onboard storage has sufficient space. You may want to clean up your mobile by deleting unwanted files and even apps that you have not used for a long duration. Try and keep the device connected to Wi-Fi and also make sure there is enough charge left in the device’s battery. Once the update file is downloaded and installed, you can check the status manually and enjoy all the new features in the OS. These updates include gestural navigation and better privacy controls.
One point to be noted here is that users of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ who had received the update to One UI 2.0 earlier will not be receiving this Android 10 update now. They may have to wait a little longer.
Once these updates reach all phones of these models, Samsung would have practically updated all devices in the Galaxy S9 series and Galaxy Note 9 series, leaving just the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It can be expected that the foldable phone will also receive the update soon.
