Samsung has recently been doing a great job of providing software updates for its older handsets, even ones from a couple of years back. Most recently, the company’s Galaxy Note 9 has received the latest Android software patch for May 2022.
The latest software update comes with version number N960FXXS9FVE1, and is designed to address several privacy and security issues. It’s currently live in certain European regions like Germany, and should make its way to more countries in the coming days and weeks.
The Galaxy Note 9 was originally launched back in 2018, and came with Android Oreo. It received a couple more OS upgrades, up until Android 10, with One UI version 2.5. Lately, the South Korean tech giant has pledged to provide more consistent software updates to its handsets.
The phone was among the last few devices to come with Samsung’s Galaxy “Note” branding, as the company has essentially ended the product line in 2022 with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which comes with a built-in S-Pen, one of the main differentiating features of the Note handsets.
To check if your phone can download the update, simply head to the Settings App, navigate to “Software Update,” and tap “Download and Install.”
