First Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ firmware now available for download

Samsung will soon begin selling the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in retail stores around the world. The first software update for the two devices went live over the weekend, around the same time that many who pre-ordered the S9 or S9+ saw it arrive at their doorstep. The first update is an important one as it brings the software up to the final retail version that we were unfortunate not to have on our review units, so Samsung has sent it out at the right time. And, like clockwork, the first firmware files for Samsung’s latest flagships are now available in our firmware database.

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ firmware now available for download

The firmware version isย G960FXXU1ARC5 andย G965FXXU1ARC5 for the S9 and S9+ respectively, and the firmware are available for Germany and the United Kingdom. The software version, of course, is Android 8.0.0 Oreo. Not Android 8.1, but as Samsung often points out, the necessary enhancements from such point upgrades are usually implemented even if the user-facing software version doesn’t change. Thanks to Project Treble support, there’s hope that Samsung won’t be delaying software updates as much as it has for last year’s flagships, although the company isn’t promising or even mentioning anything in this regard.

To grab the Galaxy S9 firmware, head to our database. We also have the official Galaxy S9 wallpapers available for download. Still on the fence about the Galaxy S9 or S9+? Read our review to find out if these devices are worth your hard-earned money.

The only problem I have is that when I’m in a call, my phone randomly mutes me on the other person’s end and they’re mute on my end for around 5 to 10 seconds. Anyone else had this problem?

#sammobile … the date on the firmware download page for the S9+ reads ” Thu, 4 April 1247 ” …. is this a typo error and if not will this effect the firmware if I flashed it on my S9+ ?
And finally , if I may ?
Is this update available OTA by your info ? Because it’s not showing up here in the UK ?

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey remember this web page has nothing to do with Samsung. This is a free informative web page on all things Samsung so please do not swear at any one on here. You should phone or call Samsung directly.

A lot of issues in the forums with these devices..
I’m over the crap lack of security patches, just ordered a cat phone…
I’ve got the new galaxy phones since the S2 to the S8, but no more Samsung for me.

there is a big problem with the power consumption at s9, the battery goes fast, it is seen that it is not optimized, another thing you barely got me available in the conditions where there was much more, otherwise on the gsmarena appeared in the battery life only a 78 endurance in the conditions in which s8 has 84, I do not understand how with a processor that says it is more economical and more efficient it consumes more than s8
