After months of continuous testing, Samsung finally rolled out Android Pie update to Galaxy S9 and Note 9 users. However, the rollout was staged, which meant that not every country got the update at the same time.
That said, Samsung is adding more countries to make sure everyone gets the update as soon as possible. The company has added two more countries to the list of countries that have gotten the Pie update. Both India and South Korea are now getting the update but for the Indian users, the update is currently rolling out to those who signed up for Pie beta. Samsung will roll out the full update for Oreo users soon. According to the rollout in other countries, users can expect either 150 MB update package or 1.6 GB update package. As you might have guessed, the 150 MB package is for Pie beta users while the 1.6 GB package for Oreo users. To download the update over the air on your Note 9, S9, or S9+, open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then select Download updates manually.
With the update rollout in India and South Korea, Samsung has now made the update available in a total of 16 countries. Samsung is still working on making the update available in all the other countries.
