The Galaxy A9 (2018), Samsung’s first ever phone with four rear cameras, is now getting its second major Android OS update. Android 10 is rolling out to the A9 (2018), almost exactly an year after the phone was updated to Android Pie. The Android 10 update is available in Poland at this time and should soon be out in other markets. It comes with software version A920FXXU3CTCD and the March 2020 security patch.
Galaxy A9 (2018) Android 10 update is a go
The full changelog is currently unknown, but you can expect all the major Android 10 features, such as Google’s navigation gestures, improved Digital Wellbeing, new parental controls, and more. One UI 2.0 also brings a slew of new functionality, in addition to making tons of improvements to the user interface, all of which we detailed in our One UI 2.0 vs One UI 1.x comparison a few months ago.
As noted above, this is the second major Android update for the A9 (2018), and, as Samsung’s policy dictates, it’s also the last. The device will, however, continue getting security updates every three months for at least another year, following which it will be moved into the ‘other regular security updates’ category, in which security updates are released only when critical security fixes are needed.
If you own the Galaxy A9 (2018), you can update to Android over the air by opening the phone’s Settings app, selecting Software update, and tapping Download and install. The Android 10 firmware for the device is also available in our firmware archive for those who don’t wish to wait for the OTA release.
