The new Android 9 Pie beta update for the Samsung Galaxy S9 comes with a slightly heavy size and weighs 1.7GB in total. Even though this is a Beta update it is heavier than the usual stable Android updates.

After downloading the app the users will be able to enroll for the Android Pie beta program by pressing the 'enroll this device in the beta program button'. From there, the users will need to visit the settings of their device and head to software updates and select download updates manually. Once all the steps are completed the users will be able to run Android 9 Pie beta update on their respective smartphone.


To recall, the flagship Samsung Galaxy S9 sports a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top for added screen protection. The device makes use of an octa-core Exynos 9810 processor which is paired with Adreno 630GPU. The device is available in 4GB of RAM with two storage variants including 64GB/256GB. The onboard storage is further expandable up to 400GB via microSD card.
