Google released the security update for its Pixel phones yesterday and Samsung is following the company closely again. The Samsung Galaxy S9 will receive the update first.
Samsung security update
Google’s security update brings fixes for various security vulnerabilities to Pixel phones. Samsung and other smartphone manufacturers can also release these solutions for their phones because Google shares this information with them. Samsung has been very quick with this lately and that also applies to the month of January.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus will receive the January patch in the Netherlands and Belgium, and that also applies to the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. In addition, Samsung has also started the rollout of this update for the Galaxy S10 series. The Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are also among the lucky ones. These phones will receive the update in the United States and the patch will also arrive in Europe in the coming days.
