New Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie beta update rolling out


Last updated: December 28th, 2018 at 09:52 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S9 may have been updated with the final version of Android Pie, but the Galaxy Note 9 Pie beta program hasn’t ended yet. Samsung is rolling out a new beta update for the Galaxy Note 9 today. The update is available in the US and India at the moment, but it should also be rolling out in other countries where the beta program was launched. The software version is getting bumped to N960FXXU2ZRLR (N960U1UEUZRLL for the US).

January security patch included

The new update fixes a number of issues, such as the Samsung Notes app crashing, apps reloading when accessed from the recent apps screen, sluggish response when switching between front and back cameras, the search bar not appearing inside the dialer, and navigation bar gestures not working. The update also brings the January 2019 security patch, at least for India. The US update is still on the December patch, although the changelogs look otherwise similar for all users.

This Galaxy Note 9 beta may be the last one to be released before the official update starts rolling out worldwide. Of course, it will depend on whether the latest beta introduces new issues or not. To download the new update on your Note 9, open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then select the Download and install option.
