Expect These Galaxy Devices to Get Android Pie
The most prominent question we're currently getting from Galaxy owners is: "Will my device get the Android Pie update?" We're not Samsung so we can't give you a definitive answer, but here's what we think will probably happen.
Samsung typically stops updating Galaxy devices with major Android releases after two updates. This isn't public policy, but it's a protocol the company's followed for several years now.
As for Android Pie, devices from 2017 and 2018 should be in the clear. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will get Android Pie, so will the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. Mid-rangers from 2017 and 2018 should get the upgrade to Android Pie as well.
If you own an older device there's a good chance you'll have to root in order to get Android Pie features running on your Galaxy phone or tablet.
