Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 9 & US Cellular LG G7 receives September security update

Samsung is one of the biggest players in the smartphone market. It is due to the constant efforts to bring new innovation and features to its portfolio that has led the company to stay in the hunt for the crown.

The Korean company, which previously was known for irregular updates and was badly trolled for its smartphones where issues crept up just after 6 months of purchase, is now stretching towards the right path.

However, according to a report, the Q2 2019 operating profit of Samsung was 6.6 trillion Korean won ($5.6 billion), which is down by 56% compared to Q2 2018. But on the brighter side, the company was placed in the 2nd spot under the Android version share for top 10 manufacturers for Q3 2018-Q2 2019 category by Counterpoint Research

This is high time for big smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, to pull their sleeves up and make their patch clear as the Android 10 is here. And reacting to this, the company has rolled out the latest September security update for the Verizon variant Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

The latest update brings nothing new except the latest security patch. It carries the version number PPR1.180610.011.N960USQU2CSI1 and Android security patch level September 1, 2019. Below is the official changelog and the screenshot of the update for the Verizon Galaxy Note 9:
