Samsung is now rolling out the Android 9 Pie firmware update for the Galaxy A8 Star, a few days after it updated the Galaxy A9 Star - its Chinese version.
The firmware G885FOLM2BSF8 brings Samsung's new One UI as well as the May security patch.
Currently Galaxy A8 Star owners in Vietnam have reported getting the update and more countries are expected to follow the rollout soon.
One UI significantly improves the look and feel of the phone with larger icons, a dark mode and a more refined design. Samsung has been updating midrangers left and right since the beginning of the year - Galaxy M20 and M10, Galaxy J7 and J7 Pro, Galaxy A8s just to name a few.
