Unlocked Galaxy S9 April security patch update rolling out

Firmware

Last updated: April 18th, 2018 at 10:26 UTC+02:00

The latest Android security patch has now been released for the unlocked Galaxy S9, following an update for the T-Mobile variant in the US. The April 2018 security patch update for the Galaxy S9 is rolling out in Germany at the moment; it's not available for the Galaxy S9+ just yet, but that should change in the coming days. An interesting thing to note here is that the latest Galaxy S9 update, which only contains security fixes, is only 60 MB in size. We're guessing this is Project Treble working its magic, as security updates for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 used to be (and still are) at least 400 MB in size. Fingers crossed Project Treble will also allow Samsung to be quicker with the Android P upgrade for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Galaxy S9 April 2018 security patch

Now, about that security patch: The April 2018 patch brings fixes for seven critical Android vulnerabilities and eight vulnerabilities that affect Samsung's software. If you own a Galaxy S9, you can see if the update is available in your country by going into the Software update menu in your phone's Settings app and tapping Download updates manually. The full firmware for the latest update is also available in our firmware database, and you can also use Samsung's Smart Switch program on a PC to grab the latest update.

Have you receive the April security update on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+?
