Samsung rolling out February security patch to Galaxy S9 outside the US

Even though each Android security update has a specific month in the name, the patches are usually provided to manufacturers a week or two in advance, so phone makers can have the system upgrades ready in time (or not). Samsung has been known to pull the switch before the first day of a given month, and that's happening again for the February 2021 patches.

The US Samsung Galaxy S20+ hits its lowest price yet of $842 ($158 off) at Amazon

Samsung got incredibly fast when it comes to security patches, often beating even Google to the punch. The story is different for carrier-issued updates, but compared to prior years, they've gotten quicker, too.

Samsung’s overlapping product lineups can make it difficult to determine which exact model is best for you, but that’s what we’re here for.
