Over the past month or so, carriers outside of the US have slowly begun releasing the finalized One UI update. And now, Xfinity Mobile is the first US carrier to release the update for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, as reported by Droid Life.

According to a Samsung representative, we can expect the One UI update to "roll out to other carrier providers in the coming days and weeks." According to Samsung, the Note 9 will also begin receiving the update within that same timeframe.
