GALAXY A9 (2018) HAS RECEIVED A NEW SECURITY PATCH OUT OF THE BLUE!

Back in October 2018, Samsung launched a smartphone dubbed Galaxy A9 (2018) in several markets.

The device was launched with Android Oreo out-of-the-box which soon got upgraded to Android 9.0 Pie. If you look at the spec-sheet, you would know that this is one aging smartphone.

Samsung Has Rolling Out A New Software Updates

Samsung has now started rolling out a new software update to its 2018 Galaxy A9 smartphone. The update carries the firmware version A9200ZCS4CUD1. If you’re wondering, we’re talking about the SM-A9200 model of the device.

Well, the new rollout is currently limited to the Chinese market. There’s no information as to whether the firmware will make its way to more regions.

Hoping That To Happen Coming Weeks And Months

We’re hoping that to happen in the coming weeks or months. If you’re wondering that the update also brings some new features, then you’re going to be left disappointed.

If you meet the location requirement and own the device, then you might have already received the update notification.

Manually Setting Updates of Smartphone

If not, then you can go ahead and check for it manually by heading over to Settings>>Software Update>>Download and Install.

Previously, Samsung also rolled out the same security patch to the Galaxy A9 Star smartphone. This device was also launched way back in 2018.

While we’re still a few days away from May, Samsung has already rolled out the security patch to the Galaxy S21 smartphone. It will soon bring the same to more devices from flagships to the budget Galaxy M lineup.
