Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8 get January 2020 security update


Last updated: January 16th, 2020 at 09:17 UTC+02:00

Two of Samsung’s flagship smartphones are now being updated with the January 2020 security patch. Samsung has released the January security update for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ update is not based on Android 10, for those wondering. It’s a standard security update for regular users not participating in the One UI 2.0 beta program, and the timing of its release suggests there is still some time left before Samsung brings a stable version of Android 10 to beta users and starts the public rollout.

The updates for both the Galaxy S9/S9+ and Galaxy Note 8 bring only the newest security patch. The Galaxy S9 update has been released in France for users of carrier Bouygues and sports software version G96*FXXS7CTA1. The Galaxy Note 8 update is also available in only one market at this time, at least for the Exynos-powered model. It is rolling out in Germany and comes with software version N950FXXS8DSL3. The rollout will no doubt spread to more countries in the coming days; you can always check if your country has received an update by visiting our firmware archive.

To download the latest update over the air, you can open the Settings app on your Galaxy S9, S9+, or Note 8, select Software update, then tap Download and install. You can also update your phone by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware archive and installing it using a Windows computer.
