Samsung’s official Android Pie release timeline shows when devices will be updated


Following the early release of the Android Pie update for the Samsung Galaxy S9 in Germany, Samsung has shared its official Android Pie update roadmap which gives us a general timeline for when we can expect the new version of Android to hit specific devices. The list of the devices and the corresponding dates was shared through the official Samsung Members app. 

Samsung’s official Android Pie rollout timeline covers most of the devices which have been released in the past two years. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7+ didn’t make the cut, but that’s because both those devices have officially received two major updates already. The Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8 will be getting their respective updates in March with mid-range devices scheduled to be updated to Android Pie all the way through October of 2019. Keep in mind that devices sold by service providers will likely be updated later than indicated below since service providers do their own testing on the updates before they are released. This can typically add 2-6 weeks to the software update cycle. 

Take a look at the list below to see when Samsung is planning to release Android Pie for specific devices in its lineup.
