Just over three months after the beta program for the unlocked U.S. Galaxy Note9 kicked off, the non-carrier variant of Samsung's 2018 flagship device is now receiving Android 9.0 Pie in the country. The same major software update is also rolling out to the Galaxy Note9 offered by Verizon.
The firmware version for the unlocked model is N960U1UEUCSB3 and N960USQU1CSB3 for the Verizon model. The over-the-air update comes in at 1.67GB for the unlocked version while the size for the carrier's update has not been disclosed. It also includes Samsung's One UI and the February 1 Android security patch.
As you would expect, the update brings with it features introduced by the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, such as gesture navigation, Adaptive Battery, and Adaptive Brightness, among others. Keep in mind that this is a phased rollout, so it may take a while before the update becomes available for everyone.
The new release comes a month after AT&T and Sprint rolled out Android Pie to the Galaxy Note9, with T-Mobile having followed suit a week ago. To check if your device is ready for the update, head over to the Settings app and open the software update section.
