Four years later, Samsung is still updating the Galaxy S9 flagships.
- Samsung is rolling out the March 2022 security update for the Galaxy S9 series.
- The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are receiving the patch ahead of many recent Samsung phones.
There’s no doubt that Samsung is the reigning champion of Android updates. The phone maker has the longest software update cycles in the market, and now, it’s exceeding its own expectations.
As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has started rolling out the latest March 2022 security update to the four-year-old Galaxy S9 series.
This wasn’t a part of Samsung’s plan when it announced four years of security updates for devices launched in 2019 and beyond. However, the Galaxy S9 models are still listed on Samsung’s quarterly security update roster.
The March 2022 update for the Galaxy S9 series carries firmware version G96xFXXUHFVB4. It fixes over 50 security vulnerabilities. The software is currently rolling out in Germany but should soon hit other global regions.
For what it’s worth, the Galaxy S9 series is getting the security patch much earlier than many recent Samsung phones.
It’s great to see Samsung go over and above its own software update promise. The move is definitely something that would please long-time Samsung users and new buyers who can confidently use their devices for years to come.
If you’re a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus user, you can check for the latest update by heading over to Settings > Software Update.
