Razer Phone 2 will get Android Pie starting February 27

January 4, 2019 — Final Android Pie update rolling out to the Galaxy Note 9 in Germany

Well, that was fast.

Just two days after Samsung revealed that it was pushing the Note 9’s Pie update up by a month, a user in Germany is reporting that they’re already receiving the update as of today.

The update for this particular user weighed in at just 95MB, but that’s because they were already part of the Android Pie beta. If you’re not on the beta, you can expect a much larger file size.

It’ll likely take a while for everyone in Germany to receive the update, and then even longer for the update to make its way to everyone around the globe. When you do get the update, however, it will have the firmware version of N960FXXU2CRLT and should come with the January 2019 security patch.

January 2, 2019 — Samsung pushes up its Android Pie update for the Note 9, Note 8, and others by a month

Samsung’s One UI/Android Pie update is already available for the Galaxy S9 series, and if you have a Note 9, Note 8, or another Samsung-made device, you can expect Pie to arrive a month earlier than expected.

SamMobile recently came across an update roadmap highlighting Samsung’s Pie plans for its other devices, and per the roadmap, Pie is now coming to the Note 9 in January rather than February and to the Note 8 in February instead of March.

Along with those two phones, Samsung’s also moved up the Pie update by a month for the Galaxy J4, J6+, J7 Duo, A8 Star, and Tab S3 9.7.

November 27, 2018 — Android 9 Pie now rolling out to the Nokia 7.1

The Nokia 7.1 is one of the best mid-range phones on the market right now, and believe it or not, it’s about to get even better.

Today, Juho Sarvikas (the Chief Product Officer of Nokia’s parent company, HMD Global) announced on Twitter that Android 9 Pie is now rolling out to Nokia 7.1 handsets around the globe.

Sarvikas notes that this is a “phased rollout”, and that “some markets with longer technical approval cycles will follow as soon as possible.”

November 18, 2018 — Motorola One and One Power receive Android Pie update in some markets

The Motorola One and One Power have been out in most markets for months — and the Motorola One arrived in the US earlier this month — and Motorola promised that these phones would not only see Android Pie but Android Q. Over 3 months after the release of Android Pie, the latest Android version is beginning to arrive on both models.

Mmmmmmm pie

Mmmmmmm pie

The update for the Motorola One Power started rolling out in India on Friday, and while its changelog isn’t very long, it does include the upgrade to Android Pie, the November security update, some improvements to the camera and a new “Dual VoLTE” feature. The Android Pie update has also started hitting the regular Motorola One for some users in Mexico today, but an official change log hasn’t been posted yet.

While these the Motorola One and One Power do have some minute regional build differences, the beauty of Android One and its rules about minimal changes to the system mean that the update for the rest of the world shouldn’t be far behind these initial rollouts.
