T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 getting its Android Pie update today
One week after the Galaxy S8 and S8+ got their Android Pie update, it’s the Galaxy Note 8’s turn to get a taste of Pie.
T-Mobile today announced that it’s updating its Galaxy Note 8 to Android 9.0 Pie. T-Mo’s support documents show that the update will be released today, April 5th, and that it’ll be version N950USQU5DSC1. The update is 1709.8MB.
Included with the update to Android Pie is Samsung’s new One UI, which brings with its new features like a night mode and tweaked user interface that moves interactive elements closer to the bottom of the screen. This should make one-handed use easier, especially on the Galaxy Note 8 and its 6.3-inch display.
Also included in the Galaxy Note 8’s update are “various bug fixes and system improvements”.
I haven’t seen any reports of Galaxy Note 8 owners actually receiving this Pie update yet, but if you’ve got a Note 8 you should keep an eye out for it. If you’d like to check for it manually, you can do so by jumping into your Settings app and selecting “Software update” followed by “Download updates manually”.
Galaxy Note 8 owners, let us know when your Android Pie update arrives!
UPDATE: The Galaxy Note 8’s Android Pie update has officially begun hitting devices, and TmoNews readers Russ and Dorian have already installed it.
Thanks, Russ and Dorian!
