How to Install the Galaxy S9 Android Pie Update Right Now

How to install Galaxy S9's Android Pie Update Right Now is an article from Adam Mills of AndroidNews.Us.

The update of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Android Pie is probably in weeks, but there is a way to install the new operating system of Google on the flagship product provided you have the time, patience and skills .

Samsung would be testing Android 9.0 Pie on the Galaxy S9 +, but that does not mean that a beta or official release is imminent.

The Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update was tested at the same time last year, but we did not see a beta before November. The official release date did not occur until the beginning of 2018.

Owners of Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + are eagerly awaiting, but those who do not want to wait for Samsung have a choice.

There is now a way to get Android Pie running on a Galaxy S9 right now. Unfortunately, the process is quite involved and not without problems.

Unlike a previous leak, this is the official update of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Android Pie. The update is in its infancy, which could cause major problems on your phone.

That said, the unfinished software works with the Galaxy S9 and gives you the opportunity to give Android Pie a chance long before Samsung publishes the real deal.

How to install Android Pie Galaxy S9 update

If you own a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 +, you can install Android Pie now. It's far from perfect, but it's the best way to access the software before launch.

The update is currently limited to the Galaxy S9 + model powered by Snapdragon (SM-G965U) in the United States. If you do not know which model of Galaxy S9 you have, you can use an application like CPU-Z to quickly determine which model and processor you have integrated.

Before proceeding to the process, you must ensure that all your data is backed up because there is always a chance that something gets lost in the mix. You can do it via Samsung Smart Switch or Samsung Cloud.

Once you have all been backed up, you want to access these instructions on SamMobile and follow them to the letter. If the instructions do not make sense or if you do not feel comfortable, avoid installing this software. It could be more difficult than it is worth it.

There are several known issues with the software. The front camera does not work and AR-emoji will crash. You can also expect a variety of performance issues.

If you're about to move quickly to Android Pie, here are some reasons why you should or should not install this version on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 +:

Who should install Android Pie right now

  • Galaxy S9 impatient users who do not want to wait for months for the official Android version of Samsung Pie. Remember, it could take months to reach your device.
  • Those who feel comfortable installing leaky software.

Who should not install Android Pie Right Now

  • Those who feel uncomfortable with some or all of the manual installation instructions.
  • Those who hate dealing with problems.
  • Those who do not know how to move to Oreo. The developer says that decommissioning will be difficult.

As Samsung is making progress behind the scenes, we should see a more stable version of the Android Pie leak for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +.

For now, most users of the Galaxy S9 must stay on the official Android Oreo software.

This is not onboard Galaxy S8 / Galaxy Note 8 / Galaxy S7 Android Oreo updates, but Google's Treble Project, one of Oreo's key ingredients, is on board Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +. This is great news.

In summary, the goal of Project Treble is to help reduce the time companies need to publish major Android software updates. This is obviously a big problem with Samsung and its Galaxy smartphones.

Android Oreo began deploying its Pixel and Nexus devices in August 2017. Samsung's first Android Oreo update was released in early 2018.

According to Google, "Project Treble separates the vendor implementation (device-specific lower-level software written by the silicon vendors) from the Android OS framework through a new vendor interface." An official provider interface does not exist in earlier versions of Android.

What does Project Treble mean for Galaxy devices such as the Galaxy S9 that comes with Project Treble? This means that Samsung will be able to release Android updates without having to wait for its chip makers (Qualcomm) to send an update. And this could result in a much faster Android Pie upgrade for the Galaxy S9 and other Galaxy devices.

Qualcomm also promised "a rapid commercial availability of the next version of Android". The company says that by "having early access to Android P, Qualcomm Technologies has optimized its software on Snapdragon 845, 660 and 636 mobile platforms to ensure OEM availability to switch to Android P at launch time." The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + both use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip.

We'll believe it when we see it, but the days when Android is updated months after the Nexus and Pixel devices finish with Android 9.0 Pie.
