Samsung has been updating its devices with the latest security patches pretty quickly over the past few years, and it looks like not much will change in September. The company continues to update its range of phones over the past few years, starting with the Exynos Galaxy Note9.

The new firmware for the Note9 has the version number N960FXXS6ETHB. Aside from the prompt security patch, we’re not sure what’s left because the changelog is not yet available. The wireless update is now available in the DBT region, the Samsung code for Germany. This goes without saying, but if you find that the update firmware is floating around online, don’t flash it on your Snapdragon Note9s.

This post serves as a summary for Samsung phones updated with the September 2020 patch. We’ll update it when this latest patch comes down to more phones from the Korean tech giant.

More patches

Following in Note9’s footsteps, the Galaxy A21s, A51, A70, S10 and Note 10 have also adopted the September patch. For the S10, this was included in the One UI 2.5 update, which we will discuss in more detail here. As with the S10, the Note10 and Note10 + One UI 2.5 was bundled in the September Bulletin, which benefits from wireless DeX and proper gesture navigation with custom starters, to name just a few new features available to older Samsung flagships . So far, this rollout has only reached Switzerland.

As for the remaining budget devices, the update is still on One UI 2.1 and contains nothing more than the breakdown from September’s security patch. This trio has only been updated in Russia and Ukraine. Other regions will follow shortly.

Note20 and Note20 Ultra

SamMobile reports that the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra are now receiving the September update that includes a build number of N98XFXXS1ATH9. Since both phones shipped with One UI 2.5, there doesn’t appear to be any functional changes or new features beyond the regular security patches.

Galaxy S9, Note8

The September security update is now rolling out for the European Galaxy Note8 (SM-N950F). Another introduction is expected shortly. It includes a firmware version of N950FXXUDDTH1 and is still based on Android 9 Pie, so the improvements in One UI 2.5 are not included.

The Galaxy S9 also receives the patch with the version number G96xFXXSBETH2. SamMobile reports that Samsung’s One UI 2.5 is still testing for the S9, S9 +, and Note9, although it doesn’t include One UI 2.5 features either.

T-Mobile Note9

T-Mobile has updated its support website to list new system updates for its versions of the Galaxy S20, S20 +, S20 Ultra and Note9. However, only the update for the Note9 seems to contain the September patch. The other updates are, according to reports on Reddit (via TmoNews), still at the security level in August and mainly contain fixes for T-Mobile’s standalone 5G implementation.

More carriers and unlocked phones

The month of September is almost over, but there are more Samsung phones out there just getting this month’s security patch. The update is now provided for AT&T Note9, Z Flip, S9 and S9 +. On Verizon, the Galaxy A51, A50, S9 and S9 + are in line to receive the OTA.

In addition to carrier variants, SamMobile reports that the September update is now also available for the Galaxy S8 and S8, the first upgrade for the phones since May.

AT&T Phones, Verizon S10e

Another day, another batch of Samsung phones is being updated to the September security patch. AT&T is now introducing the update for the Note10 series, the Galaxy S10 series and the original Galaxy Fold. The update of the Fold is only around 210MB, but the download size for the Note10 and S10 series is closer to 1-1.4GB.

The Galaxy S10e on Verizon also receives the update with the build number QP1A.190711.020.G970USQU4ETH7.

Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G Verizon and Galaxy S9 MetroPCS

Carriers keep bringing the September patch to more devices, and Verizon has just started updating the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, according to a tipster (Verizon hasn’t updated their website yet) The build number is QP1A.190711.020.N986USQU1BTIB. In the meantime, the Galaxy S9 has received the September patch for MetroPCS with build number G960USQS7ETH2. Thanks Justin!

Verizon Galaxy Note10 series

Verizon has started rolling the September security patch to the Samsung Galaxy Note10 series, which consists of the following devices:

As always, the update will be rolled out gradually so it may take some time to become available on your phone.
