Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has started receiving its first firmware update ahead of the market release. The company has released an update that adds a toggle in the Super Slow-mo camera to take advantage of 0.2-second or 0.4-second recording feature in manual mode.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 users, after updating to version N960FXXU1ARH5, will be able to record 960fps slow-motion video moments of 0.2-second and 0.4-second, Sammobile reports. The update doesn’t include anything other than the Super Slow-mo toggle. As it is, the handset will come with August 2018 security patch out-of-the-box. So if you happen to buy the device after the official global release on August 24, then you’ll probably get the update as soon as you setup the device.
The Galaxy Note 9 is not the first smartphone to get this feature, as the company’s other two flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices have already received this feature. It was introduced on the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ in last two updates. The updates got the Super Slow-mo manual mode to record only 0.4-second videos at 480 frames per second.
Samsung is yet to officially launch the Galaxy Note 9 in India. The company has sent out press invites for the August 22 India launch event. Pre-bookings for Galaxy Note 9 opened in India on August 10. It will be available in 6GB+128GB and 8GB+512GB variants for Rs 67,900 and Rs 84,900 respectively.
