August 2021 security update reaches T-Mobile’s Galaxy S9

Anyone in the U.S. still hanging on to their carrier-issued Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ can expect a new security update to land on their device shortly. Namely, T-Mobile and its subsidiary Sprint have started pushing out the August 2021 patch level this morning. The new firmware version to be on the lookout for is either G960USQS9FUG2 or G965USQS9FUG2, depending on whether you’re rocking the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+.

Verizon, AT&T, and prepaid carriers in the country are likely to follow suit in the coming days. Or weeks, at worst. Regardless, this is one of the final firmware updates for both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Samsung’s 2018 flagships are nearly three-and-a-half, at this point. They have accordingly been relegated to a quarterly release schedule earlier this year, back in spring.

This is one of the final security updates for the Galaxy S9 series

Meaning that as things stand right now, the Galaxy S9 series is only guaranteed two more security patches. Or half a year’s worth of updates, if you like. But getting four full years out of a smartphone sounds like a good deal in this day and age. Afterward, you might want to consider upgrading. A Galaxy S9-series smartphone was a suspect purchase even last year.

As for the August 1st, 2021 security patch level, this update already made its way to the unlocked variants of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the U.S. It started to, at least, about a week ago. If you still haven’t received your download, try going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. Or turn to our firmware archives and do things the good ol’ manual way.
