The November 2020 security patch is already being rolled out by Samsung on the live firmware channels as well as the latest One UI 3.0 beta builds. The new security patch was released recently for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S10 lineups, and now Samsung has turned its attention towards the 2018 flagship series, the Galaxy S9.
Both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ are now receiving a new firmware update with the November 2020 security patch in tow. The firmware is being rolled out in Germany as we speak, and it should reach other markets across Europe in the coming days. The update doesn’t seem to be bringing any new features aside from the November 2020 security patch, but this is somewhat expected given the age of the Galaxy S9 series.
Samsung has already released the highly anticipated One UI 2.5 firmware update for the Galaxy S9 series as the last update of its kind. The series is officially no longer supported with Android OS / One UI updates but Samsung will continue releasing security patches for a couple more years.
