Samsung rolls out Galaxy S9/S9+ update that improves AR Emoji & Super Slow-mo
After recently updating the Galaxy S8 line and Galaxy Note 8 with some new features, Samsung is now rolling out improvements to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ as part of the July 2018 Android security patch update.

Samsung rolls out Galaxy S9/S9+ update that improves AR Emoji & Super Slow-mo
The new software, which goes by the build numbers G960FXXU2BRG6 and G965FXXU2BRG6 on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ respectively, fixes four major security vulnerabilities that affect that operating system as a whole, a further nine that can potentially allow interaction with Samsung’s own software, and a few other low-risk ones. In addition, performance improvements across the OS have been made to both smartphones, while, in the camera app, certain stability improvements have been made. Specifically, modifications that should help improve both AR Emoji and the Super Slow-mo feature.

As with all updates, users can manually download it via the Software update section within the Settings menu, although it’s international availability is unknown at the moment – so far it’s been spotted in only Germany and India. Nevertheless, for those who do receive the update, it’s worth noting that it weighs in at 250MB.

lets hope that AR 'crack-ness' is settled down with this update... never understood how snapchat can be better than you with your own camera.

Just got a update on my S9+ on T-Mobile today. Still on June patch and no mentions of any camera updates. Gotta love US carriers, T-Mobile probably won't release this update for at least another month and then it might get put on hold anyway lol

My factory unlocked S9+ G965U1 won't see this update for 3 months. Just like my last update with the June patch.
