Samsung Galaxy S10 Smartphones Finally Get a Dedicated Night Mode
Samsung’s newly launched flagship devices missed out the dedicated night mode at the time of the launch. However, the company is rumored to introduce it via a software update in the coming months. Now, the Galaxy S10 devices in Switzerland are receiving the latest OTA update which brings not only the dedicated night mode but also the security patch update for the month of April. The Night mode will work same as the Bright Night feature which is already available on the Galaxy S10 devices. While the Bright Night feature is automatically enabled for low-light shots, the dedicated Night mode has to be manually selected.
The company is also working to improve the low-light performance on its flagship devices. Currently, the low-light photos captured by the Galaxy S10 devices continue to come with noise and are a bit on the softer side. While the Google Pixel’s Night Sight revolutionized the low light photography on smartphones, the newly launched Huawei P30 Pro with quad camera setup improved it even further. This new update for the Galaxy S10 smartphones which rolled out in Switzerland should be available in other countries in the coming days. However, the users can also manually check for new updates by opening Settings > Download and install > Software update.
Both the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus comes with the same triple camera setup. There is a 12MP Dual Pixel primary camera with variable aperture (f/2.4-f/1.5 ), a 12MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture, and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture. On the other hand, the smaller Galaxy S10e sports the same set of rear cameras as on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus sans 12MP telephoto camera. All the three devices come with OIS and offer 2x optical zoom. Talking about the Galaxy S10 5G, it has the same triple camera setup as on the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus and also comes with an additional ToF (Time of Flight) 3D sensor.
DxOMark even placed the Galaxy S10 5G alongside the Huawei P30 Pro in the first place. With the future improvements in the night mode, we expect it to offer much better results in low-light photography. Once the new update is rolled out for all the users, it can be accessed by swiping to the side in the camera app. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
