While Samsung is in the process of rolling out its OneUI 3.0 software based on Android 11 to its Galaxy S10 and Note10 handsets, it is not leaving the older smartphones behind. This year, it has started rolling out January 2021 security patch to both the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
The update is said to be rolled out in Germany right now, reports Sammobile. And as expected, it is a minor update with 113.48Mb size. It’s worth added that the update brings no new software features other than the security patch.
It pushes the firmware version to G960FXXSTFTL1 for the Galaxy S9 and G965fXXSDFTL1 for the S9+. For now, it’s not clear which security bugs it fixes. However, one can expect Samsung to detail it soon.
In case you’re a Galaxy S9 or S9+ user in Germany or anywhere around the world, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings app > software update and tapping on ‘download and install.’
What’s interesting about this update is that Galaxy S9 is one of the first to get January 2021 security patch even before the newer and higher-end phones launched by the company.
while the Korean giant has started rolling out the One UI 3.0 update to its premium budget smartphone, it has also started including its budget smartphones into its One UI 3.0 beta program. And the latest smartphones to enter this program are the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy M31.
More recently, it has started rolling out OneUI 3.0 to Galaxy Note 10 smartphones. You can download it manually by following this path: Settings > Software update > Download and Install. The firmware has not yet reached all the regions yet.
