Samsung's Super Night Shot camera update lands on the Galaxy Note 9, too
There's no arguing that Huawei opened the floodgates with its AI-assisted Night regime that takes a bit to stitch several exposures together with the resulting photo much 
clearer than if you shoot in the normal way. Google perfected it, however, with its dedicated Night Sight camera mode that takes much shorter to do the same thing.

Back in the spring, Samsung recently introduced a similar option called Super Night Shot Mode, but it was a part of the Night Scene mode in its Scene Optimizer feature that recognizes up to 30 different subjects and situations and adjusts the camera accordingly. That means it turned on automatically when the phone decided that the conditions call for it, and you couldn't just use it at will.

Recently, however, Samsung introduced a much improved versions of the Super Night Shot Mode that can be turned on manually, and has even brought it down to the S9 family. Where does that leave the Galaxy Note 9? Not neglected, of course, as the Galaxy Club is reporting that this puppy is also receiving the June camera update with all the Night Shot improvements in tow.

Granted, while this autonomous night shooting update still hasn't rolled out to all models globally, at least the one on the Note 9 is not hollering from distant Asia, but from Germany, where the firmware in question is tagged as N960FXXU3CSF9, and brings with it the automatic QR code scanning thingy as well.

So a great phone just got even better thanks Samsung. No need to upgrade for awhile, the battery life is stellar, love the bluetooth S-pen, big 1440p display, sd card slot, audio jack. No other phone has all this in 1 package.

will this update include a fix for losing bluetooth pairs after restarting the note 9?

I thought I was the only one with the issue. I thought I was doing something wrong. I turned off the auto restart I was using, because it kept losing my BT devices

Didn't see the option for Night on my S9 camera. But I'm downloading a security update now, so maybe it will be there after the update finishes. I'll be curious to see how it compares to my Pixel 3a.
