Galaxy Note 9 gets an update with April 2019 security patch

The April 2019 security patch was first released for the Galaxy Note 8 in Samsung’s expansive smartphone lineup, and it’s now being pushed to the Note 8’s successor. Samsung has released an update with the latest security patch for the Galaxy Note 9 in Romania, Bulgaria, and Slovakia. The software version accompanying the update is N960FXXS2CSD2 and it’s available both over the air and through our firmware database.

It’s unclear at this point if the update brings anything other than the security enhancements. The March update for the Galaxy S9 introduced a narrower field of view as the default setting for the selfie camera, a feature that debuted on the Galaxy S10, and we can expect the same change to come to the Galaxy Note 9 as well. Perhaps it will also finally bring a schedule option for One UI’s Night mode, which continues to be absent from the Note 9 but was added to the Galaxy S9 with the February update.

You can check if the April update is available for your Galaxy Note 9 by going into the Software update menu of the phone’s settings and tapping Download and install. If there’s no over-the-air update available for you yet, you can download the latest firmware for the Note 9 from our database here. Do leave a comment and let us know if you see anything substantial in the update other than the new security patch.

I have a problem with the camera.. When I use x2 optical zoom.. The phone uses the primary camera, that’s means it’s digital zoom

“to be absent from the Note 9 but was added to the Galaxy S9 with the February update.”

This mean that S series is now more important to Samsung than Note sereis.

Note 8 here the new update is crap. All of my settings including those for sound ect… Have been changed my calls are going directly to VM the interface sucks my phone is slow and now my calls are being dropped. I’m currently on hold with Samsung got a message about the time I’d be on hold due to large call volume 15 min I m still holding and I’m not surprised. I want to roll back don’t want this update.

Can anyone say if this update corrects the instability problems of the bluetooth connection of PIE especially in cars?
I returned to OREO while waiting for this to be corrected

Updated via OTA and no changes at all, only new modem (that’s good, the last update of it was Dec 2018). No new functions or bug fixes of known bugs – like the quick settings choppy animation if wallpaper is not the stock one and you do it from the lockscreen.

Still NO schedule option for One UI’s Night mode in April Security Update!!! Note9 SEE! Maybe if I would have bought a Samsung phone for 2.500,00 EUR they (Samsung) would have feel obligated to (at least) give me the same level of service as to the owners of the S9! I paid ONLY 1200 EUR for Note9, so I must be quiet and wait patiently! Maybe in May update!? Maybe in June update?! Maybe NEVER!? Who cares!? Thank you Samsung!

This so called Monthly Security Update is a complete BS.
Samsung phone users are being brainwashed and are made to expect another security “update” month after month while the “TRUE and MEANINGFUL and NECESSARY IMPROVEMENT UPDATES” are being ignored.

Agree 100%. My apps randomly crash all the time with no reason since getting Pie. Nearly ready to take it back for a new one that is still on Oreo. P.S. Did factory rest 3 times to resolve crashing but still exists

i hope they have been updated the kernel and OS and fixed the numerous bugs that presents from the first PIE update…not another just google security!

Just curious, what are the bugs you are referring to?

Puriak

the most annoying bug for me related to sound quality wired and wireless via Bluetooth,they remove high quality bluetooth codec(Samsung HD) and high bit rate not supported anymore..and Dolby Atmos doesnt work as good as before in Oreo and overal sound quality output is reduced….emoji panel and some other graphical effect is not smooth and so on…the final Pie update on S9 and even Note 8 is more stable than the Note 9!plus missing features that already added to s9 and note 8.

Still sticking with Oreo due to the absence of phone call recording on Pie

I’ve had that on the offical Pie since the beta to the final update and it works great.

Let’s hope this rolls quickly across the globe and fixes the Android Auto day/night mode issue. What a pain in the butt.
