The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are no longer Samsung’s flagship phones, but they are still many people’s favorites. To keep them going, the company rolls out regular software updates to install new features and improve their security, the latter of which is our subject.
The Kenyan variants of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now being updated to April 2019 security patches. Besides improving the security of the duo, the updates, according to Samsung, also address five critical vulnerabilities and plenty of other high-risk issues found in the main Android OS as well as 15 others found in Samsung One UI.
Samsung is rolling out the updates over the air, arriving as versions G960FXXS3CSD1 and G965FXXS3CSD1 for the S9 and S9+, respectively. Since the company doesn’t release software updates to all units at the same time, it will take some time before all S9 owners get the download notification.
You can either wait for the OTA to arrive, probably later next week or try a manual update via Settings > Software update > Download and install.
Meanwhile, Galaxy S10 users will soon receive an update that adds a dedicated Night mode to the camera app alongside April 2019 patches. The update is already live in Europe and Asia, so it shouldn’t be long before it arrives here.
