Samsung’s biggest release of 2018, the Galaxy Note 9 is yet to reach the consumers all over the globe. And it seems like that Samsung cares a lot about its flagships, and already started rolling out the very first software update for the Note 9. As usual, the update is moving over over-the-air OTA and carries build number N960NKSU1ARH5. It brings a toggle option for the Super Slow-mo camera mode. This will allow the users to choose between recording a 0.2-second or a 0.4-second slow-mo video in manual mode. This feature was recently enabled on the Galaxy S9/S9+ through a software update, so it’s not exactly new.
