Samsung has rolled out a new firmware update for the Galaxy S9+


Last updated: March 28th, 2018 at 18:56 UTC+02:00

There’s a new firmware update rolling out today for the Galaxy S9+. It appears to be a minor update given that the handset already comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box and there haven’t been any major platform updates since that have yet to arrive on the new flagship. Samsung has only released this update for the larger model so far but it may just be a matter of time before the Galaxy S9 gets it as well.

New firmware update for the Galaxy S9+

Samsung is rolling out firmware version G965FXXU1ARCC for the Galaxy S9+. The update has been released over-the-air in Germany only so far but it shouldn’t take long before it’s available in other markets as well.

The update itself weighs in at 287MB and it’s just following the trend of minor updates having substantial download sizes. The changelog is short and sweet, pointing out that this update improves the call stability on the handset as well as the quality of wallpaper.

Don’t fret because the March 2018 security update isn’t mentioned in the changelog. Samsung has already released the latest security maintenance release for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+. The new flagship was actually among the first few devices to receive the latest security patch earlier this month.

Keep an eye out for this update as it should be rolling out in other markets soon enough. Let us know in the comments below if it’s already available for download in your region.
