Galaxy Note 9 update with May 2019 security patch rolling out

Samsung is rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy Note 9, bringing the latest Android security patch to the device. The update is currently out in Russia, France, and Bulgaria, and it’s actually the second update the Note 9 has received in these countries in May. The last one brought two features that Galaxy S9 owners had already been enjoying for some time: a scheduling option for the Night mode theme and a field-of-view switch in the selfie camera.

May 2019 security patch now rolled out to Galaxy Note 9

The update that’s rolling out now follows a similar one for the Galaxy S9 that rolled out just a few hours ago, so it could have a similar changelog that includes improvements to the camera’s beauty mode and slow-motion video recording. That’s in addition to the May security patch, which fixes seven critical and dozens of high and moderate risk Android OS vulnerabilities, along with 21 vulnerabilities of varying severities that are specific to Galaxy devices.

The procedure to download the new update remains unchanged. Just hop into the Software update menu on your Note 9’s Settings app and tap Download and install to start downloading the update over the air. It may not be available for everyone in the aforementioned countries just yet, and if you fall under that bracket, you can upgrade using the firmware for the new update from our database.

Update: The update turned out to be just a security update, with no other improvements mentioned on the changelog.
