T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 update released with security patches


Samsung Galaxy Note 9 owners, a new update is coming your way.

T-Mobile today began pushing an update to its Galaxy Note 9 to version N960USQU1ARJ8. TmoNews readers Phil, Mike, and Bryan received the 404.78MB update this morning, and you can get it by waiting for the OTA update to be pushed to your device or by manually checking by going into Settings > Software updates > Download updates manually.


The update includes the October 1, 2018 Android security patches. According to Samsung, the update also includes:

  • Device stability improvements, bug fixes
  • New and/or enhanced features
  • Further improvements to performance

It’s been a couple of months since the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 last received an update, so it’s good to see that changing with a new update. It’s unclear what else might be included in this update, but we’ll continue to keep an eye out for changes. If you’ve got a Galaxy Note 9, grab this update and let us know what you think of it once it’s installed!

Thanks, Phil, Mike, and Bryan!

  • Probablynot

    So this still doesn’t contain the camera update from 2 months ago? Seriously?

      It might have the camera update because last week I received the camera update for N960u1 and it was ARJ5, I think it was 250mb and this update is ARJ8 404mb.

        Seriously over this camera shit. I did not pay this much money for a top tier camera experience only to be hampered by glitchy software UNACCEPTABLE.

          Agree, the Note 9 has far more issues and glitches than S8+ or S9+ I’ve dealt with freezes. Still have BT issues with non-Samsung BT items (I.e. AKG & Level headphones).

          Maybe try factory resetting the phone? Or boot into android recovery and “Wipe Cache Partition” x3.

          I know we shouldn’t have to do this, but its worth a try to make your experience better? My experience with the note 9 has been fantastic! I hope, what I’ve mentioned can help you get there.

          installed new update yesterday, BT improved some with the prior update. But was still problematic.

          Samsung greed only cause them problems, and unhappy customers

        I believe the camera (app) was updated. If you go into the camera>settings>About Camera
        the version changed from to
        Not sure if thats what you’re referring to?

    Did anyone else notice after the update the Voicemail Button on the bottom left of the dialer pad has been replaced with a video camera?
