AT&T Galaxy Note 9 July security patch is rolling out via OTA
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was launched back in 2018 and it came with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. This means that the phone has already received its two major OS updates, the last being the Android 10 One UI 2.0 update. However, the phone will continue to receive the latest security patches.
Here is the complete changelog of the update received on the AT&T Galaxy Note 9:
– Security patch level
– Camera feature enhancements, Other fixes, and enhancements
Besides, the update is rolling out via OTA and will arrive in a staggered manner. So, if you have not yet received the update on your phone, then you can head over to Settings>>Software update>>Download and install. And if there is a new update available for your phone, then tap on the notification to grab the update package.
It is always good to keep your phone up to date with the latest security patch that is available for your phone. As per the official security bulletin, it fixes a severe vulnerability that allows a malicious application to bypass user interaction required in order to gain access to additional permissions. What this means is that the local app can gain deep access to the data available on your phone without the need of your consent.
Samsung will release the Galaxy Note 20 series in the upcoming Unpacked event, scheduled for August 5, 2020. Moreover, Galaxy Fold 2, Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Watch, and Galaxy S7 series tablets will also debut at the event.
