While still not officially confirmed, there is growing evidence that the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Galaxy Note8 will be getting Samsung’s Android Pie-based One UI soon. Especially after the three handsets just passed the WiFi Alliance’s certification process.
Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8
The screenshots above are taken straight from the WiFi Alliance website and list handsets with model numbers SM-G9500, SM-G9550 and SM-N9500 which are all Chinese variants of the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Galaxy Note8, respectively.
Unfortunately, the listings don’t reveal anything out of the ordinary – it just states that these smartphones are running Android 9.0 Pie and are WiFi-certified.
We still don’t know when the final version of the software will be released, but we aassume it’s going to be sometime after January since the Galaxy S9-series and the Note9 will be getting the Pie that month and as usual, new flagships are a priority when it comes to firmware updates.
