Samsung has started rolling out the Android 9 Pie update for their Galaxy A8 Star. This comes up few days after an update for the Galaxy A9 Star (its Chinese version) was released. The firmware G885FOLM2BSF8 brings Samsung’s new One UI as well as the May security patch.
Currently the Samsung Galaxy A8 Star owners in Vietnam have reported getting the update, and more countries are expected to follow the rollout soon.
One UI significantly improves the look and feel of the phone with larger icons, a dark mode and a more refined design. Samsung has been updating mid-rangers left and right since the beginning of the year – Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10, Galaxy J7 and J7 Pro, Galaxy A8s just to name a few.
