First Galaxy Note 9 update introduces toggle for different Super Slow-Mo capture lengths
Rolling out with the software number N960FXXU1ARH5, the update introduces a new toggle to the camera that allows users to choose between recording 0.2s or 0.4s of footage in Super Slow-Mo, which means a resolution of 720p and a whopping 960fps. This difference in length may only seem like a minimal difference on paper but will actually result in considerably different video lengths once slowed down. Aside from the new toggle, though, no other changes appear to have been made, which suggests no other features will be coming to the Galaxy Note 9 ahead of its release next week.
Currently, the ability to record 0.4s of footage at 960fps provides a big advantage over the Galaxy S9 duo. After all, these devices only have the option to record 0.2s of footage at that frame rate. Alternatively, the smartphones can capture 0.4s at the lower frame rate of 480fps. Nevertheless, considering the technical similarities between the duo and the Galaxy Note 9, it seems likely Samsung will update the smartphones with the ability to record longer clips at the higher frame rate sometime in the near future.
Those who have pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 9 should expect to receive this small update as soon as they start using their smartphone. If a notification fails to appear, owners can alternatively check its availability in the Software Update section of the Settings menu.
