Samsung Galaxy S9 latest update enhances selfies quality, adds other improvements
Although it's not as important as getting a major OS update like Android Pie, Samsung's latest improvements for the Galaxy S9 are worth highlighting since it addresses one of the main issues with the phone – selfies quality.

We normally don't report about security patches, but the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 update with build number G960FXXU2CSA2 brings more than just the January security patch. First off, the latest update should enhance the quality of the pictures taken with the phone's front camera.

To be more precise, the brightness of faces in backlit conditions has been improved. However, it remains to be seen how well selfies taken with the Galaxy S9 in low-light conditions will actually be after applying the update.

Last but not least, the update should also improve the overall stability of functions. If you don't own a Galaxy S9, but thinking of buying one, make sure to read our review for more details on Samsung's flagship.

How about they add raw support for the front cam?

In low light the skin smoothing and noise reduction make the selfie camera useless. I prefer the iPhone even though it’s more noisy.
