Galaxy Note 9 gets new Android Pie update with January security patch

Galaxy Note 9 users in Germany were one of the first to get the much-awaited OneUI-based Android Pie update. Today, a new update is available for German Note 9 users. This is the second minor software update for the Note 9 following its initial Android Pie release. It has little in the way of changes and new features and appears to be a quality-of-life update. The update is available over the air and should make its way to other regions in the next few days.

The update carries build number N960FXXU2CSA7 and weighs in at 129.42MB. The changelog isn’t particularly descriptive about what changes it brings, so they’re most likely bug fixes and optimizations. It is common for Samsung to release such updates without explicitly mentioning what they do. The next update will very likely be the February security patch as the Note 9’s Android Pie build came with the January security patch.

You can see if the update is available for your device by going into the Settings » Software update menu and tapping Download updates manually. Do let us know in the comments below if you’ve received the update and noticed any changes on your Galaxy Note 9.

  • Model: SM-N960F
  • Dimensions: 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8mm
  • Display: 6.4" (162.5mm) Super AMOLED
  • CPU: Exynos 9810
  • Camera: 12 CMOS Dual OIS (F1.5/F2.4) & Telephoto: 12MP AF F2.4)

When Samsung update Note 9 to Android Pie in Romania and in rest of the world for unlocked carrier device (for those who have not received update to Android Pie)? In Germany Samsung released the second update for Android Pie. I consider it’s a lack of seriousness and professionalism.

Here it is February and my Note9 still hasn’t seen an security update since November. Not impressed. 🙁

And I’m not talking about Android Pie, I just mean the security updates, here in Canada, that are meant to keep our devices security when Google releases the patches. I’m not a fan, in any way, of OneUI. It’s still rough and needs more refining. But that’s just me. 😀

Don’t be in a rush for it, at times I can’t access the three-dot menu on my dial screen nomatter how many times I press it. I am considering downgrading back to Oreo. It is also a bit slow.

Lack of UHQ upscaler with supported Bluetooth headset (Level U pro).
and overall sound output quality and settings ( wired via 3.5mm jack ) is worse than Oreo.

If this is like the Nordic one (and it seems to be with the CSA7 suffix) then scheduled Night Mode is back via Developer Options – hooray!

I can confirm this, scheduled night/day mode is available as an option in developer settings.
