With no new flagship SoC generation on the horizon, Samsung has had to make do with the same Exynos 9810 that powers the Galaxy S9 siblings, and that also means that there are no compelling new hardware features to boast of. The Exynos 9810 is still a very powerful SoC, but we have found in our tests of the Galaxy S9 and multiple Snapdragon 845-powered phones this year that Qualcomm’s offering comes out on top in many benchmarks.

Most low-cost flagships don’t go beyond full HD for their displays, but the Galaxy Note 9’s Super AMOLED screen has a resolution of 1440×2960. This makes for a pixel density of 516ppi and it is super crisp. You can choose to reduce the resolution in software to save power or improve game performance if needed. The panel is capable of HDR-10 video playback in apps that support it. There’s also Samsung’s trademark always-on feature that shows the time and notification icons dimly while the phone is in standby.

According to the latest information, Samsung has officially released the latest July 2021 security patch update for Samsung’s older device Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy A02s in Germany and Brazil respectively. This software update carries firmware version N960FXXS8FUF5 for Galaxy Note 9 and A025MUBU2BUF5 for Galaxy A02s respectively.

No other changes or additions are part of this release. Samsung fixes for 3 critical and 38 high levels of CVEs from Google. At the same time, it includes fixes for 8 SVEs from Samsung for Galaxy devices as well as fixes close to 20 bugs related to user privacy and security.

Owners of the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy A02s can receive notification of this update. By chance you don’t receive an update notification then check the update manually by going to the device Settings >> Software updates >> Download and install.

Note: Before upgrading to the latest version make sure your smartphone is connected with a proper internet connection, we recommend you to download it over WIFI so that you will not face any error.
