Camera Night mode for Galaxy Note 9 arrives with latest monthly update

We know that a lot of you have been looking forward to the dedicated camera Night mode for the Galaxy Note 9. The June 2019 update already brought this feature to the Galaxy S9/S9+ last week. It was only a matter of time before the Galaxy Note 9 got it as well.

Samsung is now rolling out the latest monthly update for the Galaxy Note 9. It not only features the Night mode but also the ability to scan QR codes without using Bixby Vision.

Night mode for Galaxy Note 9 included in latest update

Samsung is rolling out firmware version N960FXXU3CSF9 for the Galaxy Note 9. It’s available over-the-air in Germany and can also be downloaded from our firmware section. The firmware weighs in at just under 704MB and does include the latest security patch for the month of June 2019. The changelog mentions that camera performance has been improved as well.

The first thing we checked after installing this update on one of our devices was whether it brought Night mode to the Galaxy Note 9. We’re glad to report that it does indeed bring the dedicated Night mode to last year’s flagship phablet.

Our impression of the Night mode on the Galaxy S9 was that it works as well as the Galaxy S10’s Night mode. That’s going to be the case on the Galaxy Note 9 as well. The camera app also gets a built-in QR code scanner. It will no longer be required to use Bixby Vision or a third-party QR code-scanning app. The quick toggle in the notification shade can be used to scan QR codes using the camera app itself.

Samsung has just started rolling out this firmware update. It’s going to be a while before it goes live for users across the globe. Are you excited to try out the Night mode on your Galaxy Note 9? Let us know in the comments below.
