Galaxy Note 9 gets January security patch in second Android 10-based update

The latest Android security patch has now been released for the Galaxy Note 9. The January 2020 security patch comes bundled as part of the second update for the Galaxy Note 9 that’s based on Android 10. It’s rolling out only in Germany at this time, but it’s likely to make its way to more markets in the next couple of days. The software version for the new update is N960FXXS4DTA1.

As we have seen with other devices that have received an update after they made the jump to Android 10, the new Galaxy Note 9 update only brings the January security patch. The January patch, as Samsung detailed earlier in the month, fixes five critical vulnerabilities discovered in the Android operating system and also patches 17 vulnerabilities that only affect Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

To download the new update over the air if you own a Galaxy Note 9 in Germany, open the phone’s Settings app, tap Software update, then select Download and install. You can also update your phone using a Windows computer by downloading and flashing the latest firmware from our firmware archive.

Hi everyone. after updating my note 9( 960f ) to android 10, the led notify does not blink for missed calls. There are no third party apps installed for call management. All permissions are allowed for call and contacts apps. All notification options for the 2 apps are set to be active. Is that a general problem or is it just me?!

It’s working for me (with green LED blinking) as usual after the update to Android 10.

I can confirm. Same model. No LED. Not for missed calls, not for messages, not for any app.

Yep, same here. After turning the led func. off and on again, I’m in the same boat. I still remember the times when companies weren’t using their costumers as beta-testers. Such lack of quality control…

Funny thing. My Note9 just got updated to Android 10, but the security level is still December 1, 2019.

And did they fixed the bugs like “missed call notification LED not working” fixed?

Also there is one more bug I noticed on the first stable update with Dec, 2019 patch. It is “the Icons set for multi SIM are incorrectly displayed in Quick panel, meaning if you choose globe icon for SIM 1 in Settings\Connections\SIM card manager’ it is displayed as message icon for that SIM 1 in Quick panel”. Is this bug fixed in Jan, 2020 update?

Android 10 for Note 9 (India) has issues with the Secure Folder. When we open any app through the AOD notification which is inside the Secure Folder, it doesn’t have the biometrics option to open the Secure Folder. Only unlocks using PIN. Same issue when we just leave the phone and the screen turns off in secure folder, when we wake the phone, it again doesn’t have option to unlock using biometrics. Also, the secure folder allows you to set up the 4 digits PIN but will not unlock using the same PIN. It only works with the PIN which… Read more »
