Samsung managed to pip Google to rolling out the December security patch a few weeks ago and now it’s included the January 2020 patch in the third Android 10/One UI 2.0 beta that is rolling out to the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Besides next month’s security patch, the update also includes a number of bugfixes.
Considering that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ launched almost two years ago, this is a really good if completely surprising effort by Samsung. Usually renowned for the slow rollout of OS updates, Samsung has certainly stepped things up a notch or two recently. According to the roadmap, a stable build of Android 10 is scheduled to roll out to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ next month, which means that this third beta build is likely the end of the beta program.
