Android Pie update for Samsung S8 bought from USA

I was hoping to get Android Pie update today on the S8, I got it on one phone that was bought from Canada but not on the other one which I had bought from USA. Both phone are Unlocked.

 

Any idea when I can expect the update on the phone bought from USA.

Hello Dsmalhan,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Unfortunately, I do not believe the Canadian providers will push out an OTA update for a non-Canadian version of the phone. You may be able to update the OS via Samsung's Smart Switch. If not, you'll need to manually download and install the update yourself. There are sources, such as here, which provide instructions on the method. Note that you will need to find the appropriate firmware for your particular version of Galaxy S8. If you are not familiar with installing firmwares, you might consider further research into the procedure. Alternatively, there may be some cellular phone repair shops which may provide the service.

 

 

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
