Samsung Galaxy Note 9 receives Camera software update


Samsung has just pushed out a firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The new update brings a lot of new features of which most are improved camera features. The software update file size is 345MB and is rolling out region by region.

This is the second software update Samsung has released since the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 globally. With this update, you get the September 2018 security patch matching the updated security script offered by Google for their Pixel lineup of phones.

But that’s clearly not the highlight. What is, is the improvement in the image quality. There are a lot of tweaks Samsung has made to the camera software that makes it an even better shooter.

  • Improvement of overall picture quality
  • Better exposure levels in the images
  • Improvement in Day/Night HDR accuracy
  • Low light exposure/brightness and SNR (Signal Noise Ratio) has been improved.

In addition to that, there are a lot of bug fixes that aren’t mentioned in the changelog. For one, the issue where the Always On display wouldn’t always show up has been fixed. In addition to that, Auto-rotate is now more consistent.

Well, how does it translate to the real-life usage, you ask? The difference is noticeable. The phone now takes more consistent photos. And just like the change-log suggests, the camera now no longer blows out the details of the face when you are shooting a photo with a bright-lit background.

All-in-all, it’s good to see one of the best smartphone cameras in the world get better. Do you own the Galaxy Note 9? And have you got the update? Let us know in the comments section down below.
