Samsung has begun to send security patches for June 2021 to various Galaxy devices. Initially, this update was released for the Galaxy S21 series, and later the company expanded it to Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy A50, the older Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A71 phones.
In a recent development, Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy Note 9 three years ago, becoming the latest smartphone to receive the latest security patches. We can now confirm that the company has begun to release the June 2021 security patch update for some Galaxy Note 9 models in certain European countries.
Identification by firmware version: N960FXXS8FUE5, Galaxy Note June 9, 2021 security patch update is currently being launched in Germany. However, this software update will arrive in other regions and countries/regions in the next few days/weeks. This is a phased distribution.
However, the South Korean technology giant has not yet released a security bulletin for June 2021, but it is expected to be released within a few days. At present, we cannot confirm the specific fixes and revisions accompanying this new security patch, but we have confirmed that it also brings fixes to multiple CVEs of Samsung and Google.
As a reminder, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 9 with Android 8 in August 2018. After that, this flagship has undergone two major Android upgrades, and the rest of the time will be spent on One UI 2.5 based on Android 10. However, it is still eligible for monthly security updates for a period of time.
