I think we could literally start betting here what comes out first - The s10 range for which the date is 8th March or Pie for Note 9 and S9 range. Based on what we are seeing I say the S10 range

I have never actually met a kid that did this in my life, until my sons best friend did it in the car on the way back from an event. A 40 minute drive that she asked, I kid you not, 11 times.

 

My patience was pretty thin by the time we dropped her off (which was better than the pushed her out of a still moving vehicle that my ID wanted to do) :)

I see the release has slipped to March in Members.

Click to see full size

Come on Samsung, you're not charging by the hour here. If I wanted to see slipping release dates, I would go to work.

@landcruiserguy, no we are not.

What really &$#@s me off about this is that everyone knows it's already been released all over the world on the same hardware. This isn't about "testing" or "running smoothly".

What is actually going on here? Does anyone have any ideas?

Linux: It's not been released all over the world far from it

 

 

 

According to Sammobile:

 

Countries where Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie update is rolling out

 

  • India
  • South Korea
  • Germany
  • Thailand
  • UAE
  • Australia
  • Poland
  • Kenya
  • Egypt
  • Israel
  • Nepal
  • Spain
  • Taiwan
  • Sri Lanka
  • Iran
  • Turkey
  • France
  • Ghana
  • South Africa
  • Belgium / Luxembourg
  • Thailand
  • Philippines
  • Bangladesh
  • Nigeria
  • Iraq
  • Austria
  • Netherlands
  • Switzerland
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Pakistan
  • Baltic
  • Serbia
  • Senegal
  • Morocco
  • Ireland (3)
  • Poland (Play)
  • Serbia (Telenor)
  • Slovenia (Mobitel)
  • Czech Republic
  • Czech Republic (O2)
  • Myanmar
  • Libya
  • Uzbekistan
  • Ukraine
  • Tunisia
  • Indonesia
  • Kazakhstan
  • Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • United Kingdom & Ireland
  • Austria (3 Hutchinson)
  • Vietnam
  • Afghanistan
  • Thailand
  • Nordic
  • Russia
  • Hungary (Vodafone)
  • Croatia (VIP)
  • Romania (Vodafone)
  • Netherlands (Vodafone)
  • Germany (Vodafone)

I'm not even sure this list is up to date. 

 

That seems to represent a good slice of the major telecoms markets.

 

Also, they have released the Aus firmware that installs and runs on our devices and seems to be fully compatible with our carrier networks. 

 

First world problem, yes, but not cool. Even some of the markets that have already had Pie roll out have got more than one security update since November. There are multiple security bulletins that have been issued since then, some of which have exploits in the wild.

 

 

 

This is not OK.

At this stage it may make things worse. I had a go on the s10 with one UI, it wasnt instantly impressive at all. Nothing but a skin change that at this stage could be debatable on its overall effectiveness compared to the former UI. Really no need to have the itch to update, you may find your itch gets worse when it does arrive. So whats the point.

The point is SECURITY, not a new UI. As y.ggdrasil pointed out - there are exploits in the wild that have been patched in updates we have't got. Samsung NZ has not released Dec, Jan, or Feb security patches for Note 9 in spite of the fact that said security patches are available and have been released to Note 9s in many other parts of the world, both for those still on Oreo and Pie. The only way Note 9 in NZ can move off November the 1st security patch is by getting Pie.

Except three months of security patches, a major OS version bump and a band new UI.

The only reason we're still waiting is because New Zealand carriers are dragging their arses so they can inject garbage bloatware and hideous startup logos.

No One UI or February security update either. 2degrees do take a light touch with carrier customizations, which is definitely appreciated, but the other carriers are still awful.

That aside, my point is it's the carriers who are holding up the NZ release, not Samsung.
