Sprint rolling out April security patch for the Galaxy Note 9

US carrier Sprint has been on a roll as of late. Last week, it started pushing out this month’s security update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, as well as the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ — and now it’s turned its attention to the Galaxy Note 9, distributing a near-identical release for the handset.

The update addresses five critical and dozens of high-risk vulnerabilities in the Android OS, as well as 15 that are exclusive to Samsung’s own firmware. Sprint is no stranger to bundling a number of miscellaneous network improvements into its releases, so there could also be a few of them in there.

Sprint, which was once notoriously slow at distributing updates, has pulled a complete one-eighty, now beating even Samsung to the punch in the United States. Notably, it was the first operator to start circulating this month’s security update for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10+.

Like usual, the upgrade is being rolled out in stages. To see if it’s available for your handset, head into Settings, navigate to Software update, then select Download and install. Alternatively, you can download the firmware from our database to flash it on to your handset manually.

“now beating even Samsung to the punch in the United States.”

But you know that first Samsung create update and then send it to carriers ?

Pulling 180 is figure of speech which means doing something exactly opposite like changing direction by 180 degrees.

Yeah, this is ridiculous what they do with the phones in UK. In past month (more than 12) UK is one of the last countries to get the updates and not only on Note, same with Galaxy S series. Soon they will give details for May update and UK will be stuck on February.
