It was earlier this year when Samsung last rolled out an update to the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones which then brought the ability to schedule Night Mode functionality on the devices. The company is now releasing a new update to the Galaxy S9 series featuring updates to the camera and security.
The latest update shifts the build numbers of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus to version G960FXXU5CSF2 and G965FXXU5CSF2 respectively and weighs in at 574MB. The update adds a new Night Mode inside the camera app of the two phones, which will work similarly to that on the Galaxy S10 series phones. This night mode is also expected to be able to produce equally good pictures like that of the Galaxy S10 since the camera hardware is the same.
Besides the decimated Night Mode inside the camera, the update also brings a Blur intensity bar when clicking selfies with background blur adjustment available in 8 different levels. These blur levels will even be functional when using Live Focus mode.
The update also offers a more stable set of apps including contacts Gallery and Messaging with improved usability of the QR Code reader. Lastly, the latest update on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus moves the security levels to June 2019 Android security.
Samsung’s latest update to the Galaxy S9 series is currently available for users in Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines and we can expect a wider rollout to happen in the next few days.
