The aging Galaxy A9 (2018) has secured the latest Android security update


Last updated: April 26th, 2021 at 18:51 UTC+02:00

Another one of Samsung’s aging mid-range smartphones is now getting updated with the latest-available Android security patch. As per the title above, this time it’s the Galaxy A9 (2018) that’s receiving the April 2021 security patch through a new firmware update, though availability is limited at present.

The April 2021 security patch is now available for the unlocked Galaxy A9 (SM-A9200) in China, though as yet there’s no telling when the new security patch will be released for the Galaxy A9 in other markets. As far as China is concerned, the latest update is identified by firmware version A9200ZCS4CUD1, and the firmware number itself indicates that Galaxy A9 owners shouldn’t expect any additional features aside from improved security.

The April 2021 security patch was detailed by Samsung a few weeks ago, and so far it’s been released for a wide variety of phones, including the Galaxy A9 Star. It got updated over the weekend, though availability has so far remained limited.

As for the Galaxy A9 (2018), users in China should receive an update notification at any moment, or they can trigger the update process from the Software update menu inside the Settings app. Alternatively, SamMobile offers easy access to the latest Samsung firmware, which can be downloaded from our archive and installed on a smartphone using a Windows PC.

We’ll keep you up to speed as soon as the update reaches other markets, so stay tuned and don’t forget that our new security widget is live. You can use it to determine how secure your Galaxy device is and to find out if new security patches are waiting for you.
