Samsung Galaxy S9 One UI 2.0 (Android 10) update might be delayed, as January patch arrives on Pie

Google came out with its latest OS for the year 2019, Android 10 back in September. As soon as it went live, smartphone OEMs got on to the bandwagon of delivering the Android 10 updates to their compatible devices.

Light skinned OEMs like OnePlus and Essential were able to deliver the update within a few days of the Android 10 release. On the other hand, OEMs that use heavy skins like One UI (Samsung), MIUI (Xiaomi), etc fell way behind.

In fact, Samsung has still not been able to push out a stable Android 10 updates for the majority of its phones. However, it has rolled out quite a few beta updates in the recent past.
