Samsung Electronics, a week earlier released the release schedule of Android 9 Pie for their smartphones, in the new year chose to make some adjustments to it. This drew the attention of journalists SamMobile. The company has shifted releases for some devices of 2018 and 2017 model years, appointing the release of updates at an earlier date. Thus, the Koreans confirmed that they have no problems with the efficiency of the update and are ready to present it to the world.
The changes affected two smartphones: Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9. According to the new schedule of updates, the phablet of the current generation will receive Android 9 Pie in January, not in February, as originally reported, while the previous generation device will be updated not in March, but in February. Thus, the time gap between the releases of updates for devices of different years will be only a month, which is somewhat atypical for Samsung, which is used to postpone the update to the last.
