Verizon Samsung Galaxy S9 getting March 2021 security patch

Samsung Galaxy S9 phones are pre-installed with the Samsung Experience UX based on Android 8, and further, get the first iteration of the One UI based on Android 9 Pie. This series one of the most popular flagship products, with an eye-catching feature at launch time.


According to the company’s update policy, Galaxy S9 phones are no longer eligible for Android 11 updates. However, these models have also received another major Android update in the form of One UI 2.0 based on Android 10, and currently running One UI 2.5. 

At the same time, Korean tech firm regularly provides new security updates to ensure that user data is protected from threats and CVE.

Verizon locked Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + in the US to begin receiving security updates, not only the company, but network operators have also provided security improvements by installing March 2021 security patch.

Since this is a product launched in phases,  we have to wait until the company expands the firmware availability to every Galaxy S9 smartphone user, and it is expected to be released soon.

Users of this device can manually check for software updates by going to Device Settings >> Software Updates >> Download and Install.

Apart from this, Samsung has recently released its official update support page, which shows that Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ phones are now listed and get new security updates quarterly. Therefore, for the successor to the Galaxy S9 series of smartphones, this is a piece of disappointing headline news.
