Get Category in save_post Hook


in a class I have a function for save_post action. In this function I send an email. All this works except for querying the categories for that post:

class _new_notifications
    public function __construct()
        add_action( 'save_post', array( $this, 'send_new_post_notifications' ) );


    public function send_new_post_notifications( $post_id ){
        $send_notify = get_field('send_notifications', 'option');
        if ( !$send_notify || wp_is_post_revision( $post_id ) ) {

        $categorie = get_the_category( $post_id );
        $cat = $categorie[0]->name;

//doing other stuff...

I already tried everything possible (several hours 🙂
but I just do not get the category for that post ID.

Maybe someone can. help?
Many Thanks!!
