Android L

There's plenty of indication that the next version of Android, dubbed project L for now, will actually be called "Lemon Meringue Pie". Google introduced the Android L framework with the new Material Design language, and now we are waiting on a retail build to hit the shelves, most likely debuted on an HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet first, with a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor, and allegedly 4 GB of RAM.

Meanwhile, a Lemon Meringue Pie Android build, codenamed LRW50D, has been noticed in the Chromium issue tracker. Ever since Android Cupcake, Android builds have carried such short internal titles, which follow their development chronologically. "L" here stands for the Lemon Meringue Pie in question, "R" is for the code branch that the build originates from, "W" indicates the third quarter of the year, and, finally, the number 50 are the days going into the quarter, which would peg the LRW50 release happening on August 19th, while "D" is the fourth edition for that same day.


The Build was runiing on the "New Nexus 7" which refers to the current Nexus (2013) from ASUS. Will this be the final Name for Android L ? Let's wait and see...

As is to be expected from the beta versions of any OS, the version of Android 9 Pie running on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ also have their fair share of bugs. To Samsung's credit, they have been pretty quick in rolling out hotfixes and major updates to fix the issues, as encountered by users. While the last beta version of the OS released a few days ago was supposed to be much less problematic than the one before it, a major bug was preventing a lot of users from using their mobile data connection, alongside causing a lot of other problems such as poor reception, invisible options in night mode, malfunctioning lift-to-wake functionality, app update errors and of course, frequent crashes.

Most of the problems have since been taken care of by firmware version G960NXXU2ZRLA (S9) and G965NXXU2ZRLA (S9+), which contain hotfixes for most, if not all of the problems that were being experienced by the users since the last beta release. Unfortunately, the updates have only been rolled out in South Korea so far, so you may have to wait a few days before it comes to other regions as well.


While updates are released throughout the year, no other update is as exciting or as anticipated as the yearly OS upgrade. In case you own a Galaxy S8/S8+/Note 8/Note 9, that day of rejoice might not be very far away now.

According to a post by guncelmiyiz (official Samsung blog in Turkey), the Galaxy Note 9 would be among the first devices to receive the OS upgrade to Android 9 Pie on January 15. The source also reveals that the Galaxy S8. S8+ and Note 8 will start receiving the same update, exactly a month later on February 15. As is to be expected, the updates will come equipped with Samsung's One UI on top.

In case you are wondering why the S9 and S9+ were not mentioned by the source, then that's because of the fact that stable versions of the One UI, powered by Android 9 Pie OS had already started circulating to non-beta users in Germany less than a week ago. What this means is that the S9 and S9+ users will be the first to experience finished versions of Samsung's One UI and Android 9 Pie on their respective smartphones.

While the only Note 9 users who were able to get a piece Google's latest Android pie were so far the beta testers, that time is now over as Samsung just started to roll out a stable Android Pie update to the Galaxy Note 9. As per a report by SamMobile, the update was first seen going live in Germany merely hours ago, but it is quite possible that the same update is also being rolled out to neighboring nations in Europe as well by now.

If you are a beta tester, the file will only be a 95.26MB download as you already have pretty much everything that the update has to offer, except of course, better stability. According to the report, you should see firmware version N960FXXU2CRLT making its way onto your Note 9, provided you are in Germany or it has started rolling out in your region as well. In any case, we expect every region to have the update by the third week of the month.
