With improvements made by Google, Android Pie on the S9 is also bringing Samsung’s One UI, a new user experience which is made to make apps easier to use on larger phones, amongst other improvements.

As you know this latest update came to the Samsung smartphones very faster than the previous versions of Android did, and the South Korean smartphone makers are still way behind different companies such as Nokia, OnePlus, and even HTC with its update schedule.

In past, it was attempted by Google to increase the speed of the adoption of new Android versions with Project Treble, but even with the program’s introduction in early 2017 only 21.5 % of Android devices were running Android Oreo or later as of late October this year.

Samsung is getting faster at resolving this issue of releasing the update lates. You might be surprised to know that, Galaxy S8 owners had to wait seven months after Android 8 release before it was available for their devices, while Android Nougat took at least five months to arrive on the Galaxy S7.

It was said by Samsung at Annual Developer’s conference that they are expected to roll out Android 9 Pie in January 2019, which is when we should expect the full global rollout of the new software.
