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.
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.
