Verizon Galaxy S9 now being updated to Android 10

  • Verizon is pushing the Android 10 update for the Galaxy S9 on its networks.
  • This update brings features like gesture navigation along with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 upgrade.
  • Verizon has been relatively slow with the Galaxy S9 Android 10 update as some rival carriers have offered the update in January.
  • This is likely to be the last major update for the Verizon Galaxy S9.

Verizon is now sending out the Android 10 update for the Samsung Galaxy S9 running on its networks. This comes a few months after Verizon sent out the update to the Galaxy S10. However, users of the Galaxy S9 on its networks will be grateful to the carrier for finally sending out the update.

As expected, the update also brings Samsung’s One UI 2.0, which introduces a whole new world of features particularly in terms of the user interface. Google-specific features like systemwide dark-mode as well as gesture navigation are included with this update. It also includes a native screen recorder app, saving you the trouble of downloading third-party apps for the purpose.

It’s worth pointing out that the Galaxy S9 launched with Android 10, and it’s unlikely to see another update in its lifetime. However, Samsung may surprise everyone and issue the Android 11 update for the smartphone sometime next year.

If you’re a Galaxy S9 user on Verizon, be on the lookout for an update notification. Alternatively, you can also try downloading the update manually by heading over to Settings.

Samsung has been fairly quick with its update rollout, although carriers tend to take their own time with these major updates. AT&T, by contrast, sent out the Android 10 update to the Galaxy S9 in January.
