Samsung has started to send a new software update to the Galaxy Note 9 devices. With the latest update, the 2018’s Note flagship is receiving the February 2021 security patch which brings fixes for 32 high and 4 critical levels of CVEs.
Bearing a build number N960FXXS8FUB1, this software update is currently rolling out in Germany. Since it’s an initial rollout, so the newer security update may take some time to cross the boundaries of Europe to become available for every Note 9 user.
Aside from the latest security patch, Galaxy Note 9’s software update also enhances the system functions, improves the stability of the system, and brings fixes for some unknown issues for a better user experience.
It’s not good news but as per Samsung’s revised Android update policy, the Galaxy Note 9 is no longer eligible to receive one more Android upgrade. It means these devices will not get the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 features. And, the One UI 2.5 is the last major feature software update for the Galaxy Note 9 handsets.
On the other hand, the Korean tech giant is still sending monthly security updates and will continuously provide regular security updates to this older flagship for two more years. For now, you can check for the February 2021 security update by following the steps given below.
Here’s how to check for updates:
- Open device’s Settings
