After months of development and beta testing, the South Korean tech giant is ready to serve S9 owners a taste of the Pie. Both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are getting the major OS update in several key markets. Expect the rest of the world to receive the same. And in the near future, more Galaxy phones will be upgraded as well. The update is initially for the unlocked units so those who purchased from the carriers will have to wait a bit.
