Weighing in at a little over 300MB, the update shifts the firmware version of the Note 9 to N960FXXU2ARI9 and is currently being rolled out to users in Germany. Samsung has stated that the new update will improve the overall quality of images clicked on the Note 9 with enhanced brightness on people’s faces during backlit lighting scenes.
While this is not a feature update, the new firmware improves HDR colour accuracy when switching between day and night and also adds some brightness to low-light photos clicked on the phone. There’s also a significant improvement in Signal Noise ratio which enhances the overall photographic performance of the dual-camera sensors at the back.
Besides the camera improvements, the update will also greet the September 2018 batch of Android security updates from Google with fixes and optimisations to improve the overall stability of the system.
To recall, the Galaxy Note 9 features a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels, 19:5:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 516ppi. The phone is powered by Samsung Exynos 9810 processor. The phone comes in two storage options: 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 512GB storage. The camera comes with an AI-infused 12MO primary sensor that has a variable aperture switchable between f/1.5 and f/2.4 aperture and a 12MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom and f/2.4 aperture.
