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.
