This is the first time to see a Google Nexus device lacking behind in Android updates!... The HTC Nexus 9 users has just received their official Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OTA update, while other Nexus devices like Nexus 10 is getting Lollipop 5.1.1 update.
Nexus 9 update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is on its way to Nexus 9 owners, and it's around 23MB in size. After applying it, you'll be on build number LRX22L. As the minor version number jump from 5.0.1 to 5.0.2 implies, this one should be all about the bug fixes.
If you are wondering how it can be so because the S9 and S9+ are not supposed to be released before March 16, then you probably don't know that certain customers who had pre-ordered the S9 or S9+ have already received their smartphones before time. It happens every year really, so we are almost starting to think that it could be a marketing move by the OEM! Nevertheless, some users are indeed using the S9 and S9+ and they have confirmed that Samsung has started rolling out the March security update for the S9 and S9+ officially.
If you happen to be any of those lucky customers, then you will see firmware versions G960FXXU1ARC5 or G965FXXU1ARC5 make their way onto your S9 or S9+ respectively. Both versions are roughly 242 MB according to SamMobile. The Galaxy S9/S9+ becomes the second device (considering both to be one) in Samsung's arsenal to get the March update after the Galaxy A8. It should fix five Samsung's software related loopholes and nine critical vulnerabilities shared by all Android powered smartphones and tablets.
