Samsung S8 Pie Update?

Answered
Does anybody know the roadmap for the release of Android Pie for the Samsung SM-G950F?

Is there a beta site for this or is there a non-Telstra copy I can use for testing reasons for app development?

Thank you.

Re: Samsung S8 Pie Update?

According to Samsung, it is due to be released around March 2019 for the S8 globally.

You would have to contact Samsung about whether there is the ability for developers to get a copy as they develop all the firmware. Telstra only test it for network compliance just prior to release.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I don't know the road map, but I can assure that the unlocked versions of your phone here in Sydney already have it pushed to their phone as of late last month...my brother has an unlocked phone and has shown me his phone is at Pie 9 ... very jealous... so it would all depend on Telstra testing and releasing the update...I know for the note 8 that it shows nothing on the Telstra website yet it had been released to note 8's in some parts of Europe
If you think you can or you think you can't, then you are probably right!

While most of the world got it, we Australian who paid the highest price for s8 compared to rest of the world (thx to taxes that are humping us) still waiting for update. I have a unlocked and still samsung want to push updates same time as carriers. Great going

Optus has indicated they're rolling the Pie update out now (some Optus users have confirmed today that they're getting the update now).
Vodafone has indicated today that they're testing the Pie update now.
Telstra? No word of anything related to the Galaxy S8 since a security patch from July 2018, even though we're currently on the January security patch... Bit of a joke.

Just be thankful you're not in Canada. The s8/s9/s10 are wayyyyy more expensive there.
