Samsung released the November security patch earlier today for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in selected countries. In addition to these two smartphones, Galaxy Note 9 is also getting the update for users in Germany. While the update is available for Note 9 carrying Exynos, owners of other models and chipset should receive the update in the coming days.
In an official blog post Samsung noted the fixes accompanying the latest update. According to the company, the patch addresses nine critical Android OS vulnerabilities as well as few other vulnerabilities. One of these fixes included a critical vulnerability that was discovered back in September. Although the smartphone wasn’t listed in the affected devices, the latest patch addresses the vulnerability.
If you were looking for new features, you will be disappointed to know that the latest Note 9 update doesn’t include any new features. If you own Galaxy Note 9, you will need to wait until the release of Android 10 and One UI 2.0 update in the coming months to receive any meaningful feature update.
In order to install the latest update, you will need to open the Settings app on your smartphone and head to Software update. From there, you will need to select Download and Install. You can also manually install the update by downloading latest firmware using Windows PC.
