- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that has been used for three years will no longer receive monthly security updates.
- Instead, the owner of the phone will have to wait three months to get the cumulative security update.
- Samsung will gradually discontinue support for Note 9.
The updated changes are not entirely surprising. Galaxy Note 9 was launched in September 2018, so having 36 months of regular monthly security updates is actually better than usual. At least next year, the Galaxy Note 9 update is likely to continue to be updated quarterly.
Galaxy Note 9 users who want to upgrade should probably consider the recently launched Galaxy Z Fold 3. As Samsung decides not to launch a new member of the Note series in 2021, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 equipped with a large folding screen and supporting Note S Pen is worthwhile, but an expensive alternative.
