Snapdragon variants of Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus also gain official TWRP support

Galaxy S9 TWRP G960U G965U

We usually see the Exynos variants of the popular Samsung phones get more custom love than the US variant powered by Snapdragon chipset. Same was the case with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus too, a marginal yet well thought of upgrade over the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus with the Snapdragon chipset did not have official TWRP support till now, but this changes today. TWRP team has now added dedicated downloads page for both the S9 and S9+ today. The Exynos variant has already had official support from the TWRP team for a long time.

This means that S9 and S9 Plus owners in the US, China, and a few other regions can now install an official version of the TWRP recovery on their devices. Even though the S9 devices have been out for roughly a year now, we still gladly welcome the official TWRP support.

The model no. of Snapdragon variants of the S9 and S9+ are:

  • SM-G960U
  • SM-G960U1
  • SM-G965U
  • SM-G965U1
  • And some Chinese variants ending with 0/0/5
