As you might have figured, Samsung is improving its monthly security update game. Earlier this month, we saw the latest security patch hitting the Galaxy S20 lineup along with the two-year-old Note 9 duo. Well, it’s time for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones. That’s an improvement considering we’re not even halfway through the month. With that said, Samsung has now started rolling out the July 2020 security patch to the Galaxy S9 duo.
Galaxy S9 duo receives the July 2020 security patch!
The latest Android security patch is coming with two new firmware versions G960FXXUAETG3 and G965FXCXUAETG3. Just like with S9 duo, the new patch update only brings the latest July 2020 Android security patch. This means that there is no new features, changes, additions just some vulnerabilities fixes. To recall, the July 2020 security patch fixes four critical Android vulnerabilities along with 14 vulnerabilities affecting only Galaxy devices.
As of now, the new update is currently rolling out in German region while there is no current information available for other markets. With that said, we should see the update heading over to major markets in the coming days or weeks. If you haven’t received the update notification, then you can manually check for the update. To do that, head over to Settings>>Software Update>>Download and Install.
It is worth noting that the update might be rolling out in batches meaning you might not get it right away. If that happens, you don’t need to worry since it will hit your device sooner or later. We are currently waiting for confirmation of the update seeding beyond Germany. We’ll make sure to keep our readers updated.
S9 duo to soon go quarterly from monthly
If you’re unaware, Samsung offers three years of security patches support to its Galaxy flagship lineup which includes S-series and Note lineup. With Galaxy S9 duo entering the final phase of its monthly update life cycle, Samsung will now switch to the quarterly update. We should see that happening by this time next year. To recall, the device recently received its last major update i.e. One UI 2.1.
