T-Mobile rolling out Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 security updates


T-Mobile is now pushing out updates to its Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 models. They don’t include Android 10 like today’s Galaxy S10 update, but they do bring some new security patches.

The Galaxy Note 9 is receiving an update to version N960USQS3CSK1 that includes the December 1, 2019 Android security patches. The Note 8 is getting the December security update, too, but its update is version N950USQS7DSK6.

These updates are now rolling out over the air, so if your T-Mobile Note 9 or Note 8 hasn’t gotten its update yet, you should see it soon. You can also check for it manually by going into the Settings app and selecting “Software update” followed by “Download updates” manually.

Security updates may not be the most exciting things ever, but they’re important because they help to keep your smartphone and all of your personal data safe. So if you’ve got a T-Mobile Note 9 or Note 8, be on the lookout for your security update.


Thanks, Debjit!

    Man, I am feeling left out. Who knew Samsung’s newest phone would get put on the back burner.

    WoW!! shocked The Note 8 is still getting updates!

    • Security updates, it probably won’t receive anymore feature updates such as Android 10.

    Anyone know what the “new and/or enhanced features” might be? Or is this simply boilerplate in all notices?

    • Guessing it’s just boilerplate, all this update does is contain security fixes up to the December 1st, 2019 patch level.
