Since last month, Samsung has started sending the June 2021 security patch to various Galaxy devices. Initially, this update was released for the Galaxy S21 series, and later on, the company expanded it to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy A50, Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A71 phones.
In a recent development, Samsung’s three years older Galaxy Note 9 flagship became the latest smartphone to grab the newest security patch. We can now confirm that the company has started releasing the June 2021 security patch update for select Galaxy Note 9 models in some European countries.
Identified via firmware version: N960FXXS8FUE5, the Galaxy Note 9 June 2021 security patch update is currently rolling out in Germany. However, it is a staged distribution this s/w update will reach other regions and countries in the coming days/weeks.
However, the South Korean tech giant has not yet published the June 2021’s security bulletin, but it’s expected within a few days. At the moment, we can’t confirm the specific fixes and revisions that come with this new security patch, but it’s confirmed that it brings fixes for several CVEs from Samsung and Google as well.
Note: This article will be updated when Samsung verifies the details of the June security patch.
Just to remind you, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 in August 2018 with Android 8 out of the box. Later on, this flagship had received two major Android upgrades and it will spend its remaining time on the Android 10-based One UI 2.5. However, it’s still eligible for monthly security updates for some more time.
Well, you can now check for the software update manually by navigating to your device Settings >> Software updates >> Download and install.
