The latest Samsung device is getting the brand new Android OS update. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, together with T-Mobile are getting the Android Pie update rollout.
We have heard that the update did not come alone – we get to meet the RCS Universal Profile 1.0, too. This is the best thing that could happen for the One UI overhaul that comes with the Android Pie update.
What is RCS in a nutshell?
RCS is basically the answer to iMessage for all the Android devices because it lets you send and receive larger media files and stickers. You are also able to have group chats and get typing notifications, too. It has been stative for quite a while, and it is expected to do much more once the Android Q makes its appearance on all of the devices in the next months.
The version numbers and how much it weights
The update for Galaxy S9 has for the version number, and Galaxy S9+ has G965USQU3CSAB. Each update will have 1.9GB in size.
If you get a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S9, you should be able to get Android Pie. If you know you are a subscriber, you should see if you can get it manually.
It does not work with anything else besides T-Mobile
Keep in mind that this thing will work only for with the T-Mobile network, mainly because of how T-Mobile has put into practice the RCS thing outside the Google Jibe hub. This means that you cannot get it for other carriers, even if they support the profile through the Jibe hub.
Perhaps, by the end of 2019, some of the carriers will have tried to interconnect their services.
