Galaxy Note 9 starts receiving March 2019 security patch

Samsung kickstarted the rollout of the March 2019 security patch by releasing it for the Galaxy M20 at the beginning of this month. This week, the company released the same update for the Galaxy S8+ and the Note 8. Samsung’s latest phablet, Galaxy Note 9, is also joining the list now with the update rolling out in more than a dozen countries.

Our firmware database shows the March update for the Note 9 is out in Egypt, Switzerland, South Africa, Nordic countries, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary, and a few other markets since yesterday. The release, which bumps the software version to N960FXXS2CSC1 in the Nordic region, doesn’t seem to bring anything else other than the latest security fixes to the flagship phablet.

As detailed by Samsung last week, the March 2019 SMR (Security Maintenance Release) includes patches for eight critical and dozens of high-risk vulnerabilities in Android OS. Additionally, the update also patches 11 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items, a few of which are classified as high risk.

Since Samsung doesn’t release updates to everyone at once, not everyone may receive the OTA update immediately. To check if the latest update is available for your Note 9, open the Settings app, navigate to the Software update menu, and tap the Download updates manually option. The update is also available in our database for those who want to install it manually.

Absolutely true, and that’s why until now i don’t update to the pie, for these missing features, but actually i love it, but waiting is better than upgrading to miss features 😅

How I wish samsung to take this updates for Note9 seriously.
Note9 needs more than just security updates. There are functions and fixes present in S9 Pie which until now are not being offered for Note9 users.

The option to set night mode base on time, wifi improvement, notification/quick setting panel shade lags when display is set to the highest resolution.

It’s already march and yet kernel and modem versions are still stuck to old versions.

And some existing modes/features in oreo that were removed in pie.
