Samsung rolls out One UI 2.5 to the Galaxy Note 9 with October 2020 security patches
Following the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 Series in August this year, Samsung started rolling out the One UI 2.5 update to older Galaxy devices. Since then, the update has made its way to quite a few devices, including the Galaxy S10 Series, Galaxy Note 10 Series, Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, and the Galaxy Tab S6. As per a recent comment on our forums, the One UI 2.5 update has now started rolling out to the Galaxy Note 9.
The One UI 2.5 update for the Galaxy Note 9 (firmware version N960FXXU6FTJ3/ N960FOXM6FTJ2/N960FXXU6FTJ1) measures in at 820.76MB, and it includes the Android security patches for October 2020. The update also includes most of the new features that were introduced with the Galaxy Note 20 Series, including support for wireless DeX, new camera features like Single Take, improvements for the Samsung Keyboard app, and more.
As with the previous One UI 2.5 releases for other devices, the update may take a few days before it reaches all Galaxy Note 9 users. It’s also worth noting that One UI 2.5 is the last major update for the Galaxy Note 9, as the device wasn’t included in Samsung’s new policy of three generations of Android upgrades. However, the device will still receive monthly security updates for at least another year. In case you haven’t received the update yet, and you don’t wish to wait any longer, you can download the update package from the link below and manually flash it on your device.
