Galaxy Note 9 Android 9 Pie firmware now available

One UI download

Samsung began its beta testing for One UI based on Android Pie towards the end of last year and the company has now begun the rollout of the stable Pie update for the Galaxy S9/S9+ as well as the Galaxy Note 9; however, up until now the Android 9 firmware for the Galaxy Note 9 wasn’t available and users had to wait for the OTA update to get the update on their devices.

That changes today. Now, you can simply install one firmware file on your Note 9 to upgrade from Oreo to Android Pie — so this is now indeed as easy as Pie. No more the hassle of installing one particular Oreo firmware first, and then installing a series of Pie OTA updates to reach final stable build. One firmware flash would do now.


Well, Note 9 users can now rejoice since the Android 9 Pie firmware for the Galaxy Note 9 is now available and ready for users to download and install on their devices. The new update version is N960FXXU2CSA2 and is only for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (SM-N960F) model.

This update also brings along the January security patch and comes with all the new features introduced with One UI. So if you’ve been waiting for the update for a long time, then you could simply download the Android Pie firmware for your Galaxy Note 9 from the link below.

Note: Keep in mind that this firmware is only for the Exynos variant Galaxy Note 9 and isn’t for the Snapdragon models (U/U1/W). So, DO NOT try to install the firmware on Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy Note 9.
