Samsung is rolling out new software updates to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon variants of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus as well as Sprint and U.S. unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 9 with the latest security patches available for the respective devices.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are receiving the latest security patch available from Google – June 2019, but those using the Galaxy Note 9 will have to make do with May 2019 security patches for now. Unfortunately, there is still no mention of the dedicated Night mode for the camera that recently found its way to the Galaxy Note 9 in Europe.
For those on AT&T, the S9 update is arriving as version G960USQS5CSEA while those on the S9 Plus are receiving version G965USQS5CSEA. The former weighs 236MB and the latter is heavier at 240MB.
The software version remains unchanged for T-Mobile users but if you are on Verizon, the S9’s update has version G960USQS5CSEB while the Plus is receiving version G965USQS5CSEB.
As for the Galaxy Note 9, the update is targeting users of the Sprint variant as well as the unlocked model through Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and many other carriers. The software version for the Sprint variant is N960USQU1CSE3 while the unlocked model is receiving version N960U1UEU1CSE3, but unlike the S9 pair, these updates install May 2019 security patches to the Note 9.
Both the S9 and Note 9 in Europe got the dedicated Night camera mode with the update to June 2019 security patches. But considering the S10 in the same region also got this feature in April and it hasn’t arrived in the U.S., we might be in for a much longer wait before it arrives on all eligible phones.
