Do you have a Computer?

If so download Smart Switch and connect your phone to it using the usb ports.

It will check your phone for updates and will give you the latest one.

Smart Switch does not update the operating system of my device, when connected, a message appears that the device has the latest update, the condition for updating my device is to find it on the Verizon USA network, this is the problem, and I am in Ukraine, so I want to download firmware android 9 and install via Odin. But I don’t know what version of firmware to download.

Shut it down, remove the SIM card, start it up, do a factory reset, shut it down, put the sim card in, start it, when it asks you if it should configure itself according to the sim card and the country it is in, agree, then proceed with installation.

Re: Software

It wont recieve updates ever again because you put a Ukrainian SIM in it and Unlocked Snapdragon phones default to the first sim you put in the phone, and is permanently locked until you unlock it again.

Re: Software

Thanks for your reply, but how can I unlock my smartphone? Samsung service center operator said that you can only get an update to the operating system in the United States, in the network of Verizon operator, for this I need to cross the Atlantic)). I want to download the Android 9 Pie firmware, but I don’t know which region to enter. Here is my Model number SM-G950U Service Provider SW ver. SAOMS_SM-G950U_OYN_XAA_014098897a345134464a42 XAA/XAA/XAA    Baseband version G950USQU1AQDF.

Smart switch automatically downloads the latest update for your phone and detects your region when installing it
