December security update rolls out to Samsung Galaxy Fold & Galaxy S9 in Europe

Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, is the only high-end smartphone from the company eligible for an update to One UI 2.0 based on Android 10 yet it isn’t participating in the beta program.

The stable rollout started late last month with the Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+ leading the way, just like they did joining the beta program.

Some Canadian owners of the Galaxy Note 10 have also picked up the update and next in line should be the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9, both of which have already received their One UI 2.0 beta updates.

As you wait for the stable One UI 2.0 update to hit your Galaxy Fold, Samsung is rolling out the latest December security patch to the handset in Europe.

So far, the update has been confirmed for the LTE variant in France, where it is arriving as software version F900FXXS2ASKC, up from build ASKB that recently brought support for DeX for PC.

The December security update for the Galaxy Fold arrives less than a month following the release of the November patch, which is testatement to how good Samsung has become with Android security updates, but the official software update tracker has yet to be updated.

The Galaxy S9 December update weighs in at 111MB, so don’t expect anything more than the said security improvements and general bug fixes. The rollout, like the Galaxy Fold, is staged, meaning some units will receive the download notification ahead of others.

The Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S9 duo now join the likes of Galaxy A50 and Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note 10 and Note 9, and the U.S. unlocked Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices in receiving the new December security patch.
