Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners on Verizon should be seeing August’s security patch rolling out this week. A week ago, both devices received updates that brought July’s security patch along with bug fixes, so now S9 and S9+ are probably feeling spoiled. I wouldn’t get used to that.

According to the changelogs that Verizon posted, Galaxy S9 owners will receive software version R16NW.G960USQS3ARG8, while S9+ owners will see R16NW.G965USQS3ARG8.

If you own one of these devices, be on the lookout.

Update: T-Mobile is also rolling out August’s security patch to Galaxy S9 and S9+ owners. For S9, look to see build version G960USQS3ARG8, while S9+ will see G965USQS3ARG8.

Update #2: T-Mobile is pushing July’s security patch to Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners. Once updated, S8 owners will see G950USQU5CRG3 and S8+ owners will see G955USQU5CRG3.

Update #3: T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 8 is also getting updated with July’s security. Don’t mind that we’re more than halfway through August, though. Once updated, you’ll see N950USQU5CRG7.
