Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series were launched in 2018 and are one of the company’s best-selling smartphones. At release, these devices come equipped with high-profile hardware and the latest software combination, making them true flagships.
Android 8 is the common thread between the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, if we talk specifically about their software system. Due to Samsung’s last year update policy, these devices have reached Android version 10 with One UI 2.5 and are no longer compatible with any major software upgrades, including Android 11.
Android 11 Features
Recently, we’ve reported that Google has started optimizing an Android 11 feature for billions of devices running Android 6, Android 7, Android 8, Android 9, and Android 10. As the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 running the One UI 2.5 on top of Android 10, the new feature will come to you as well.
Permissions auto reset
With the introduction of Android 11, Google revealed a new feature called Permissions auto‑reset. When enabled, if you haven’t used an app in a while, you may not want it to keep accessing your data. So Android will reset permissions for your unused apps.
Google has confirmed via its blog post that starting December, it will gradually roll out the Permission auto-reset function on devices that run Google Play Services between Android 6.0 and Android 10.
On the other side, Android 11’s Permission auto-reset function will be extended to all smartphones running between Android 6.0 and Android 10. However, it is too early to confirm the exact arrival of your Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, and we can assure it will arrive in the first quarter of 2022.
