Samsung has a Christmas surprise for Germany and a few European countries with its early stable Android Pie update for Galaxy S9 and S9+ phones. The smartphone maker has the planned release of Android version 9 in January 2019.
Samsung has beaten itself on how fast it has released the new Android OS update with the Android Pie. Google has released Android 9 Pie in August of this year.
The South Korean phone maker has taken seven months to release Android Oreo for its Galaxy S8 smartphones. However, Samsung is still behind companies like Nokia, Sony, OnePlus, and HTC for the Pie update.
Among the benefits of the new update will be longer talk time or phone use, thanks to the Adaptive Battery feature which restricts unused apps from draining your phone battery. Furthermore, the new update will add several enhancements in the screen display, privacy, security, as well as system usability.
Galaxy S9 update will include Samsung’s One UI software feature which increases the user experience for large screen smartphones like S9 and Note 9.
