How long will the Galaxy Note 9 continue to get software updates?


Last updated: April 6th, 2022 at 19:51 UTC+02:00

For many Galaxy Note fans, the Galaxy Note 9 is still one of the best devices ever released in the lineup. Many are still hanging on to their Galaxy Note 9 for various reasons, and one of those is no doubt the fact that the phone still continues to get regular security updates, even if Samsung stopped releasing major OS updates for it some time back.

Right now, the Galaxy Note 9 gets security updates every three months in most markets, which is great for a phone that launched back in 2018. But how long will that continue, and when will the Galaxy Note 9 stop getting updates completely?

Expect Galaxy Note 9 updates to stop in the second half of 2022

Recently, Samsung pulled update support for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ as the two phones completed four years on the market, and for the Galaxy Note 9, that is likely to happen later this year a little after it completes its fourth birthday. There’s no way to be precise, but we can expect Samsung to drop support by October at the latest.

An update or two might get released for the Galaxy Note 9 even after the official support period has ended, depending on whether or not a critical security flaw is discovered later down the line. But if you own the device, expect to stop seeing any update notifications on it in the final quarter of 2022.

And if you’re thinking of upgrading from your Note 9, either now or once it stops getting updates, you might want to take a look at the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The S22 Ultra is a Note in all but name, and while it lacks features like a microSD slot and a headphone jack, it has plenty of awesome features to offer, which you can check out in our video review below.
