Samsung Galaxy S9+, Samsung Galaxy S9 Getting December 2020 Android Security Patch: Report

Samsung Galaxy S9 was launched back in 2018

Highlights
  • The update for Samsung Galaxy S9+ carries firmware version G965FXXSCFTK2
  • For Samsung Galaxy S9, it carries firmware version G960FXXSCFTK2
  • The OTA is rolling out to international variants of the phones

Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy S9 have started receiving an OTA update that brings with it the December 2020 Android Security Patch, according to a report. The update is limited to the international variants of the smartphones as of now. The update for Samsung Galaxy S9+ reportedly carries the firmware version G965FXXSCFTK2, while for Samsung Galaxy S9 it is G960FXXSCFTK2. The smartphones received the November 2020 Android Security Patch early last month.

As per a report by SamMobile, there are no other additions or changes brought to the smartphones with the update, apart from the security patch. If you have an eligible Samsung Galaxy S9+ or Samsung Galaxy S9 model, you can check if you've received a notification for the update. If you haven't, go to Settings > Software Update > Download and install to check availability for the update.

Since the rollout has just started, it may take a few days for the update to reach your Samsung Galaxy S9+ or Samsung Galaxy S9 handset.

Since their release back in 2018, Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy S9 have been consistently receiving latest updates. The phones received the One UI 2.5 update in October, that brought support for wireless DeX, improved Samsung Keyboard with a new split mode, added a new YouTube search function, and improved the camera.

At the time of the update, the One U 2.5 was reported to be the last big update for the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy S9 handsets. It was reported that while the phones will continue to get security patches, they won't receive Android 11. Notably, Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Samsung Galaxy S9 were not mentioned in the timeline for the Android 11 based One UI 3.0 update, released by Samsung a few days ago for devices in Egypt.
