Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ finally receiving Android 10 update

Samsung’s 2018 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, are finally receiving their long-awaited Android 10 updates.

The two members of the Galaxy S9 family are receiving the update after Samsung updated the current flagship, the Galaxy S10 (and S10+), the Galaxy Note 10 (and Note 10+) and the Galaxy Note 9.

Like the other devices that have received their final stable Android 10 build before it, the Galaxy S9 was also part of the beta programme that Samsung has had for its devices to help test the software before rolling it out to everyone.

Interestingly, the company has gone ahead to release the update to the devices that were not enrolled in the beta. Those are set to receive the stable build soon.

Android 10 on Samsung devices is wrapped by the company’s flashy and colourful overlay, One UI 2.0.

One UI 2.0 brings with it several features to Samsung devices, many building upon what has already been there since the first version, a few new ones and others building on what Google has introduced to Android with version 10.

The update has reportedly hit some units in Kenya so it is worth keeping an eye for over the next few days and weeks as the staggered rollout gains steam.

The update takes about 1.8 – 1.9 gigabytes.
