Starting from last week, the latest software/firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been available from Samsung’s servers. Amongst many improvements and security fixes that this software has, the main item our readers have been waiting for is Camera Night Mode.

Another useful addition to the camera is the ability to scan QR codes natively with the camera. There is no need for an additional QR code scanning app or for the use of Bixby vision.

According to the changelog, the performance of the camera has been improved. In our tests, it seems a little snappier, but it is a bit hard to quantify.
