Last updated: September 12th, 2018 at 10:04 UTC+02:00

Samsung has been a bit slow to roll out the security patch for this month even though it detailed the maintenance release about a week ago. The latest Galaxy Note 9 firmware update is rolling out now and it brings the September 2018 security patch in a handful of markets.

The Galaxy J5 (2017) was the first device to receive the latest security maintenance release from Samsung as part of its Android 8.1 update. The company started rolling out this update for the Galaxy J5 (2017) in the UAE yesterday.

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version N960FXXS2ARH6 for the Galaxy Note 9 with the September 2018 security patch. It’s available for users in the Baltic region in addition to Romania, Slovakia, Luxembourg and Bulgaria. Samsung is rolling out the firmware update over-the-air and the relevant files are also available for download from our firmware section.

The security patch for the month of September 2018 brings fixes for nine critical vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Android operating system.

Other supported Samsung devices will be receiving the patch in the near future as well.
