Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus update hub: front-camera upgrade rolling out

samsung galaxy s9 update

Update, 10/16/2018, 04:09 AM ET: Samsung is rolling out the October 2018 security patches to the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, along with a front camera upgrade.

SamMobile spotted the 244 MB update earlier today; it’s said to be rolling out in Germany with firmware versions G960FXXU2BRJ3 and G965FXXU2BRJ3, though the accompanying screenshot SamMobile provided is in Dutch.

The changelog says the backlighting has been improved when shooting with the front camera and faces will now be brighter. It sounds like a small, but worthwhile upgrade, though the phones remain on Android 8.0 Oreo for the time being.

As the update is now rolling out in Europe, it will likely reach the U.S. in the coming days and weeks.

Meanwhile, it looks like Samsung is gearing up for an Android Pie beta program. These betas typically last until the year’s end, with the final update rolling out soon after. We should have more on this, including how you can sign up, soon.


Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Android update hub page. This page covers all major U.S. carriers with a quick reference table for each and a log with links to further details. It will be regularly updated with the latest Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus update information, but note that we won’t be covering general security patches in our list.

We recommend you bookmark this page so you can stay up to date with the very latest updates.

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus Android update

The Galaxy S9 series was released in February 2018 and became the first Samsung flagship to run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box. Since then, Google has released the Android 8.1 update and Android 9.0 Pie, but S9 owners are still waiting for any concrete rollout details.

Editor’s Pick

The Galaxy S9/S9 Plus will almost certainly pick up Android Pie, though we don’t know when. Samsung is likely to roll out a beta program for this in the run-up to 2019, as it has with previous updates to its Galaxy flagships, which some of you may be able to get involved with.

Despite supporting Project Treble, it’s yet to be seen whether Samsung will roll out major updates any faster than in the past.

It also seems likely that the S9 series will eventually be updated to Android Q, but we’ll no doubt have to wait until 2019 to hear more on that front.
