Samsung’s Galaxy S and Note flagships are still waiting on Samsung’s special version of Android 9.0, and given the current state of the developer builds, they’ll likely be waiting for a long time.

Right now, only the just-released Google Pixel 3, the Huawei Mate 20 series, and the Samsung Galaxy A will ship with Pie out of the box.

The OnePlus 6T — with its 6.4-inch AMOLED screen, in-screen fingerprint scanner, and 3,700mAh battery — is rumored to have a slightly higher price than its predecessor’s $546: about $20 to $30 across the board.
