Samsung Galaxy S10 devices’ New Update brings QR Code Scanner to Camera app



Samsung has started rolling out new updates for its flagship Galaxy S10 series since last week, which includes June 2019’s Android security patch. The update rollout has begun starting from HongKong and China Galaxy S10 trio units, which run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon’s flagship chipsets. The update included the latest security patch along with fixes for critical vulnerabilities. However, the Korean tech giant has also been rolling out to the most recent security update to Exynos powered Galaxy S10 line-up, starting from Switzerland, according to SamMobile.

The new security update rolling out to Exynos-powered Galaxy S10 trio of devices is said to be bringing the QR code feature to the native camera app for the flagship devices. A similar approach is made by cameras on iPhones as well, with devices running iOS 12 and above. Instead of relying on third-party apps or Bixby button, Galaxy S10 series will now be able to point at a QR code directly by opening the native camera app on their devices. This QR Code scanner has been rolled out to the Galaxy S9 devices already with their previous Android updates.

As we all know, scanning a QR code directly on a product makes us know more about the product through the web. This feature is certainly handy, and also there’s a ‘QR Code’ quick toggle in the status bar, which opens up the camera app on the device instantly, making it much easier to use. Apart from the latest security patch and the new QR Code scanner feature, there appears to be no new features rolling out with the new update.

If you are Samsung Galaxy S10 series owner, expect the latest update to be rolled out to your devices in the coming days, since its a timely staged rollout that kicked off in Switzerland. Galaxy S10 series users can expect an OTA update sometime soon and can even check for the update manually by navigating to Software update section on their Galaxy S10 trio devices.
