Back in May last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy A6+ smartphone along with the likes of the Galaxy J6, Galaxy J8, and the Galaxy A6. At the time of launch, the smartphone ran Android Oreo out-of-the-box. But now, Samsung has reportedly started rolling out Android Pie update to the users.

Samsung Galaxy A6+ users in Poland have reportedly started receiving the Pie update. This means that the update should be rolling out to other markets sooner than later, SamMobile reports. The update being rolled out comes with firmware version A605FNXXU3BSC6, and is 1.2GB in size. Apart from bringing Pie, the update also includes the March 2019 Android security patch.

As mentioned, the update has started rolling out in Poland, and should soon be reaching other users as well. Users should have received a notification for the update. Alternatively, they can head over to Settings -> Software Update -> Download updates manually.
