Samsung is still to formally confirm the rollout of Android Pie for its 2017 Galaxy S8 flagship models as effectively as the Galaxy Note 8 but there are indications the tech giant will push Android Pie upgrade based on the fresh One UI early. This a lot was revealed via the WiFi Alliance certification pages for the three handsets.
The screenshots grabbed in the WiFi Alliance web reveals the handsets come with model numbers SM-G9500, SM-G9550 and SM-N9500. The model numbers are those of the Chinese versions of the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8, respectively. The listing was supposed to show just the WiFI certification but together arrives the discovery that the models that were tried are operating Android 9.0 Pie OS.
The Galaxy S8, S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 were released operating Android Nougat and later on Android Oreo update was pushed about Spring last year. Samsung is yet to disclose after Android Pie will hit the models however it could not be this year. An update is going to happen sometime after January since the Galaxy S9-series and Note 9 will be having Android Pie in January. As typical, fresh flagships always take the front row seats whenever it comes to firmware updates.
