In addition to the official September security patch from Google and the usual bug fixes and minor tweaks, the latest firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 also comes with noticeable camera improvements, including day/night HDR control accuracy enhancements, better low light brightness, and more.

Although the Galaxy Note 9 has one of the best cameras on any smartphone on the market today, Samsung's latest firmware update comes with a few improvements in this department. Obviously, there is also the latest security patch from Google inside this firmware update that has just begun to roll out in Germany, according to SamMobile.

The new firmware version for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is N960FXXU2ARI9 and comes in the shape of a 302 MB update. The changelog mentions the following camera-related highlights:

  • better camera picture quality
  • improved brightness of faces in backlit conditions
  • low light brightness and SNR (Signal Noise Ratio) improvements
  • improved day/night HDR control accuracy 

In addition to the above, the Galaxy Note 9 also gets the security patch dated September 1, 2018 that includes — as usual — a lot of under-the-hood tweaks, fixes, and minor changes.

Although SamMobile's report only mentioned Germany, we are sure that Galaxy Note 9 users in other markets should be receiving the update already as well. If you are one of the happy ones who already got the update, let us know in the comments below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
