First Galaxy A9 (2018) software update is all about the camera

The Galaxy A9 (2018) is all about the camera experience, and it’s no wonder that the first software update for the device brings some improvements to that experience. The changelog simply mentions that camera stability and picture quality has been improved, and we’ll be trying it out to see if it makes some difference between the out-of-the-box software and the updated one.

Galaxy A9 (2018) software update rolling out

The update is rolling out in markets like the Netherlands where the phone is already on sale, but the same is also being released as the initial software for countries like India, where sales will begin in the next few days. The latter are also getting the November 2018 security patch out of the box. Sadly, the update for our unit in the Netherlands comes with the October security patch. Here’s hoping Samsung jumps to the December patch with the next update instead of delaying things regularly in some countries.

The update comes with software version A920FXXU1ARKG. If you have a Galaxy A9 (2018), you can grab the update (a 125 MB download) from the Software update menu in the phone’s settings. Wondering whether the A9 (2018) is a good purchase? Look out for our review in the coming weeks to see what we think and also check out our hands-on experience.
