Samsung has released a new Galaxy Note 9 update today, but you're not going to like it. The new update is for countries where the Note 9 is still on the September security patch, such as the UAE, Iran, South Africa, and Iran. It brings with it the October patch, despite having a software version that's newer than the one in countries where the October update has already been released.

New Galaxy Note 9 update doesn't include November patch

That means the November 2018 security patch will take some time to arrive in the aforementioned countries, although we can expect it to arrive faster in markets where the October patch is already available. The software version is getting a bump to N960FXXU2ARJ7 and the changelog doesn't mention anything other than improved security. It's still a 200 MB+ download, though, which is higher than the usual size of Samsung's security updates for devices launched with Android Oreo out of the box.

To download the new update on your Galaxy Note 9, open the phone's Settings app, tap Software update, then hit the Download updates manually option. It's not available via Smart Switch or our firmware database yet, but you can expect that to change in the next few days.
