T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active gets Android Pie in the latest update


Feb 22, 2016
Google may have officially released Android 10, but there are still many devices that are waiting for the year-old Android Pie update. The T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active was one of them until yesterday. Thankfully, the long wait has finally come to an end as the rugged version of the 2017 flagship has started receiving the Android Pie update on the United States’ third-largest carrier.

The T-Mobile variant is getting the update two weeks after the Sprint version and nearly two months after the AT&T model received the same update. The delay looks even worse when you consider the fact that the Android Pie rollout for the Galaxy S8 duo started back in February itself. The Galaxy S8 Active is merely a rugged version of the regular S8 with nearly identical specs, but customers had to wait much longer for the update.

The T-Mobile update, which weighs 1687 MB and carries the version number G892USQU5CSG7, brings Android Pie and One UI 1.1 to the device. It also includes the July security patch, even as Samsung starts rolling out the September security patch to its other devices. This is the second and most probably the last Android version update for the Galaxy S8 Active. You can read our One UI Feature Focus series to learn about all the new features the latest release brings to the table.

T-Mobile customers who haven’t received the update notification yet can manually check for it by tapping the Download updates manually option under Software Update in the Settings app. If that doesn’t work and you are impatient to wait any longer, you can consider downloading the latest Galaxy S8 Active firmware from our database and manually flashing it.
