Camera failed: Note 9 and Galaxy S9 users face a new software bug

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 phablet facing camera failure bugs in Night mode, July 2019

The "Camera failure" error is not new to Samsung as its handsets were being hit by such camera-related bugs quite often in the past. Now, the time has come for those who own the high-end Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 to bump into this issue as well. The bug seems to appear only when shooting in Night mode.

Samsung might still be the top smartphone maker in the world, but its devices are often far from flawless. Obviously, all problems go away sooner or later — at least if we are not talking about devices that blow up due to major design flaws, as it happened with the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. Camera-related software bugs surface from time to time and they usually get a quick fix, so remains to see how fast will Samsung manage to take care of the latest camera failures that have been reported by multiple users.

These camera failure errors apparently target the Night mode of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 devices and, for now, there is no workaround. When the "camera failed" message shows up, the user can only try to take the shot once again. Apparently, lowering the resolution might solve the issue, but this is definitely not a solution for someone who paid top dollar for a flagship device.

Are you one of the unhappy Galaxy S9/Galaxy Note 9 users affected by such problems? Maybe you had to face this bug while using another device — by Samsung or another brand — and you would like to share your story with us?
