Samsung rolls out September patch for Galaxy S9, S9+ and Galaxy Note 9

Galaxy S9 Plus root

Not long ago, Samsung started rolling out September 2018 security patches to the budget Galaxy J7 and J5 handsets, but attention has now turned to the flagship Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy S9 duo.

The three are receiving new updates in Europe, where the Note 9 update is arriving as software version N960FXXS2ARH6 while the S9 and S9+ are on versions G960FXXS2BRI1 and G965FXXS2BRI1, respectively.

These are OTA updates and usually, such updates take time to arrive on all units. This means that some users may get the download notification ahead of others, so don’t fret if your friend’s S9 or Note 9 has already received the September patch and yours hasn’t.

To speed up things, you can try forcing the update via the Settings menu of your phone, but there’s no guarantee this will yield the expected results.
