Update to Verizon Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ includes various bug fixes, improved voice call quality and more
If you're a Verizon subscriber rockin' the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9+, you should shortly receive a notification alerting you to a software update. Down boy, this is not the update containing Android 9.0 Pie. However, that doesn't mean that this update isn't important. After all, it will exterminate bugs like the one that causes the phone to reboot when the iris scanner is used to unlock Sammy's 2018 flagship handsets.

There are other bugs that the update gets rid of, including one that impacts inter-carrier video calls, causing them to fail. Another issue that will be fixed prevents outgoing calls from connecting under certain conditions. Not only will the update improve overall voice quality on calls, it also comes with the July Android security update.

The software version for the Galaxy S9 is G960USQU3ARG4, and G965USQU3ARG4 for the Galaxy S9+. Once you receive the notification that the update has arrived, Verizon demands insists suggests that you do two things before starting the updating process; make sure that you're connected to a Wi-Fi network or strong Verizon cellular signal, and charge the battery on the handset fully.

I wish that they'd put out an update that would fix the issue with the Note 8 where when the device is restarted, the Location turns off automatically.
