Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 9 in August 2018 and it’s the company’s most popular and older note phone. This smartphone comes with Samsung Experience UX on Google’s Android 8 Oreo operating system, and has further received two Android upgrades and completed its main update life cycle.
The One UI version 2.5 based on Android 10 released last year is the main major software update for the Galaxy Note 9 flagship product, and it will spend the remaining time on One UI 2.5. Although it is no longer eligible for Android 11, its successor Galaxy Note 10 is ready to receive the upcoming Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update early next year.
In addition, Samsung will continue to release new security updates for this 2018 flagship product every month. Now, according to the latest information, Galaxy Note 9 has begun to obtain the latest Android and One UI security patches released in May 2021. The firmware update carries the internal version number: N960FXXU8FUE1.
In addition, this new Galaxy Note 9 software update enhances system functions and inventory applications, thereby providing a better overall user experience. Please note that the May 2021 patch is being rolled out in phases, so it may take a while to roll out in European countries.
