We are nearing the end of the month's third week, but
Samsung has only just started rolling out this month's updates to its arsenal of
eligible smartphones. The latest names on that list are those of the Galaxy S8,
Galaxy J7 pro and the Galaxy A9 Star Lite, which are receiving the June patch in
USA, India and China respectively.
In case you own a Galaxy A6 or A6+, expect the same update
to start hitting the two models very soon as well. The thing is that the Galaxy
A9 Star Lite is the rebranded Chinese version of the Galaxy A6+ and that means
the update for the A6+ should go live any day now. The more interesting
question is, where is the June security patch for the Galaxy S9 and S9+? In
spite of being the latest flagship smartphones in the company's arsenal,
Samsung has not been very regular or prompt with updating the two devices and
that is raising some questions. On the other hand, this also shows that Samsung
does not restrict security patches from rolling out to low - mid range phones,
just because the same for the more expensive devices are not yet ready.
