According to the report, the issue only affects the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset variant of the phone -- made available in the US and other markets.

"'Galaxy Note 9' owners in US have reported that the camera also freezes up in apps that use the camera -- it would just throw up a 'camera failed' warning," the report added.

However, the company has not disclosed a release date for this update.

The smartphone was launched in August in 128GB and 512GB variants costing 67,900 and 84,900, respectively, in India.

The 6.4-inch Galaxy Note 9 comes with a 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel dual camera system with dual optical image stabilisation (OIS) at the rear -- with two-times more powerful optical zoom and up to 10-times powerful digital zoom -- and an 8-megapixel front shooter.
