According to my Samsung Members app it states that the Android Pie OS release will come for the Note 9/8 in February, the S9/S9+ in January and the S8/S8+ in March.

Wonder why Telus does not post any OS Update Schedule? 

Telus did in the past, but it created expectations of those releases being on time, and Telus took the heat for delays caused by manufacturers or other issues, and spent time responding to inquiries about delays. It became sensible for them to move to providing info once updates are released, so folks can confirm, rather than anticipate.

Yeah I think that is when Samsung is going to release One UI to the Carriers... not necessarily when the Carriers will push the OTA to the consumers 🐧

Unfortunately once a Samsung device is 2 generations old, they typically abandon it. I'm in the same boat with my S7.

problem is it took them 1.5 years to get the phone sorted out to the point it stopped dropping calls and hollowness sounds like your in a tunnel when talking, only to find out it may have been my sim card. i have no issues with the phone now and i refuse to give it up even though i have a brand new iphone 7 plus and a s9+ sitting in their respective boxes.. not sure if it is the size of the phone or not but the s7 edge is the right size and weight for me and what i di. i refuse to sign a new 2 year contract as in a couple month i think i am giving up my phone as i don't use it much

Looks like Rogers is scheduled to release the OTA on February 7th now(Pushed Back from the 4th) Hopefully that means Telus will release it soon.

Rogers already started pushing out updates for the S9+. Guys at my work manually checked for updates and there it was...still no news from Telus. Which is very disappointing

If you really can't wait, you can always flash the Rogers version with Odin. With Samsung, it's the same hardware Canada wide, and all their software is multiCSC, so it will work on any carriers device. It just detects your CSC on first boot, and installs the appropriate carriers bloat.

I have done it many times in the past. Sammobile, etc will have the downloads and instructions.

No I was testing to see how long it would take the device to automatically download and it did not so I forced a manual update.
