Samsung has finally started rolling out the much-awaited Android 8.0 Oreo update for the mid-range Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro smartphone. At the time when other companies are working on the Android Pie update, Samsung is still providing the Oreo update to few of its smartphones.
Most Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro users had given up till now and thought that they will never be receiving the update. However, Samsung did keep up to its promise and the Galaxy C9 Pro finally got its second major software update, first being Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The phone was launched back in February 2017 and it ran on Android 6.0.1 Marshmellow out of the box.
Also, it is worth mentioning that even after keeping the customers wait for so long, the company has provided the Android 8.0 Oreo instead of the Android 8.1. Notably, this is the last major software update for the Galaxy C9 Pro as it has completed its two-year cycle. So, we cannot expect Android Pie to arrive for the device. However, there might be custom ROMs available down the line.
The new update, weighing in at around 1.2GB, brings all the changes that Google has introduced with the Android 8.0 Oreo. These changes include Autofill, Picture-in-Picture mode, a new set of emojis and much more. Apart from these changes, the update also brings Samsung Experience 9.0 which is a UI update from the company.
Some of the notable changes also include the introduction of Dual Messenger which allows using two accounts of the same application. It also brings the latest August 1, 2018 security patch from Google.
