The Galaxy Note 9 comes preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and on top of it is Samsung’s Experience 9.5 that brings a flurry of customizations and features to the phone. Among the features that the Note 9 comes with is the support for super slow-motion video recording, just like the Galaxy S9 and S9+, however, Samsung will obviously be rolling out regular updates aimed at not only making this feature better but also improving the overall experience of the Galaxy Note 9.

On this page, we have everything you need to know about Galaxy Note 9 software updates. Whether you want to know about the latest Android security update and what else it brings to the fold or maybe you wanna find out when your Note 9 will make the switch to the latest and greatest from Google, Android 9 Pie; we have got your back. You’ll find changelogs, download links, as well as firmware versions of all updates that are released for the Note 9, be it carrier variants or the unlocked models.

Galaxy Note 9 Android Q update

  • Note 9 is eligible for Android Q
  • Release date yet to be announced by Samsung
  • Android Q beta should be out in January 2020
  • Estimated to roll out in February 2020 for the global variant
  • AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon could get in March-April 2020
Model Android Q release
Global Unlocked TBA (estimated release: Feb 2020)
AT&T TBA (estimated release: March 2020)
Sprint TBA (estimated release: March 2020)
T-Mobile TBA (estimated release: April 2020)
U.S. Cellular TBA (estimated release: March 2020)
Verizon TBA (estimated release: March 2020)
U.S. Unlocked TBA (estimated release: April 2020)
Canada TBA (estimated release: April 2020)

The Galaxy Note 9 will be one of the first Samsung devices to get Android Q update, there is no doubt on that front. However, it will be following the release of Q update for Galaxy S10 sets and Note 10 sets, because those two will be the first two devices to get Android Q. That’s not bad, anyway.

We think Samsung will begin the rollout of Android Q beta update in January 2020 for the Galaxy Note 9 sets sold globally and in the US (models ending with F and U).

But the stable Android Q update should be hitting the global variant (F/FD) before the US models (U/U1), and that should be happening before the end of February.
