Samsung rolls out first software update for Galaxy S9, S9+
In a news that might delight users, Samsung has rolled out the first software update for its recently launched Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones. Titled G960U1UEU1ARBG, the update is a 287MB file that can be downloaded over the air. It's not even been a week that the flagship Android Oreo device went on sale, and the company is already looking to squish bugs.
The software update improves the stability of the Face Unlock feature, which uses both iris and facial recognition in order to provide users with a more secure unlock method. It also improves the stability of the inbuilt camera app after some users reported camera crashes.
However, one area that the software update does not address is Samsung Pay. Users with the unlocked versions of the S9 and S9+ earlier reported that the company's digital payments platform is not working. Samsung Pay is asking users to update the app by redirecting them to the Play Store, but once users get there, the app is listed as incompatible for an update.
According to a report, a Samsung customer care representative has said that an update is soon planned for the users who "are experiencing issues with Samsung Pay" in unlocked models. It is yet to be seen if the problem is with the device or if there is an issue with the Samsung Pay app itself.
