After the update, the software version on the Galaxy S9 Plus will change to G965FXXU2CRLI, whereas for the Galaxy S9, it will change to G960FXXU2CRLI. The update should be available all over the globe by January 2019. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ will come next in March, along with the Note 8, while the Galaxy A8/A8+, A7 2018, A9 2018 and Galaxy Tab S4 10.5 will get the update in April. Once the flagship smartphones are updated, Samsung will start pushing the update for its mid-range devices. However, Galaxy Tab S3 9.7, Galaxy Tab A 2017, Galaxy Tab Active2 and Galaxy Tab A 10.5 owners will have to wait until October 2019.
