One of the best things about using a Samsung smartphone is the fact that you will always receive the biggest software updates that Google releases ahead of everyone else. Samsung is the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer and this is why its smartphones receive such a high priority when it comes to Android updates. Carrier locked Galaxy S9 was the latest smartphone to receive Android 9.0 Pie, but now, Samsung has decided that unlocked Galaxy S9 should receive the same treatment.
Unlocked Galaxy S9 Gets Android 9.0 Pie
Samsung knows that there are people who don’t like the idea of having their smartphones locked to a network carrier and this is why it announced that starting today, unlocked Galaxy S9 units will start receiving Android 9.0 Pie. This is Google’s latest operating system update and it comes with a plethora of cool features and important software tweaks.
How to Trigger the Update
The major operating system is being rolled out OTA (over the air). However, Galaxy S9 users who don’t like to wait should be pleased to know that Android 9.0 Pie can also be manually triggered. To make things even better, the only thing that Galaxy S9 users need to do is to head over to the “Software & Updates” panel in Settings and then tap on the latest update available.
Since we are talking about Galaxy S9, let’s check out some of the smartphone’s highlight specs so that we refresh our memories on what kind of performances Samsung’s flagship for 2018 has to offer.
Samsung has equipped Galaxy S9 with a 5.8-inches display that uses Super AMOLED technology. The display offers a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2960 and a pixel density of 570 ppi. Leaving the massive display aside, Galaxy S9 impresses us with an Exynos 9810 octa-core CPU that clocks at 2.7GHz. Moreover, the CPU is paired to a Mali-G72 MP18 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
