Unlocked and carrier Galaxy Note 9 models in the United States are now getting a new firmware update with the March 2022 security patch attached. The March update addresses over 50 vulnerabilities, according to the official changelog Samsung had published last month.
The stateside Galaxy Note 9 with model number SM-N960U is getting firmware version N960USQS9FVC5 from Sprint and T-Mobile.
Meanwhile, the unlocked Galaxy Note 9 in the USA (SM-N960U1) is getting firmware version N960U1UES9FVC2.
The Galaxy Note 9 should receive a few more security patches before Samsung stops supporting it. The Note 9 remains a fan favorite amongst S Pen enthusiasts, but unfortunately, it already received Android 10 as its last major firmware update a long time ago — two years and counting.
Stateside Galaxy Note 9 customers can download the latest update via the Settings app on their phones or by tapping the notification once it arrives. Galaxy Note 9 owners can also skip the wait and download the new update from the firmware section on our website.
