Samsung is yet to officially confirm the rollout of Android Pie for its 2017 Galaxy S8 flagship models as well as the Galaxy Note 8 but there are indications the tech giant will push Android Pie upgrade based on the new One UI soon. This much was revealed via the WiFi Alliance certification pages for the three handsets.
The screenshots grabbed from the WiFi Alliance website shows the handsets come with model numbers SM-G9500, SM-G9550 and SM-N9500. The model numbers are those of the Chinese variants of the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8, respectively. The listing was supposed to show just the WiFI certification but alongside comes the discovery that the models that were tested are running Android 9.0 Pie OS.
The Galaxy S8, S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 were launched running Android Nougat and later on Android Oreo update was pushed around Spring last year. Samsung is yet to disclose when Android Pie will hit the models but it may not be this year. An update is likely to happen sometime after January since the Galaxy S9-series and Note 9 will be getting Android Pie in January. As usual, new flagships usually take the front row seats when it comes to firmware updates.
