Samsung to Use Selfies Instead of Ambient Light Sensor to Offer Auto Brightness Feature

Samsung is known for making a wide range of smartphones from entry-level to flagship models, and as we know the company does not provide an ambient light sensor to most of its budget-friendly smartphones, it is going to bring a new update. Now to ensure that even it gets a good market in the market for budget handsets, the South Korean giant is adding a new feature which will allow the front facing camera to capture a photo every time the device is unlocked so that it adjusts the brightness automatically.

The Ambient sensor is always left out on the budget smartphones just to save extra expenses, and which means that the customers lose the automatic brightness feature which most of them are used to but now there is a possibility of it changing soon. There is a screenshot, showing a firmware update which is rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy J8 what is introducing a new auto brightness mode on them.

There is an attention card along with the update which says, that the device will judge the ambient light around the phone by taking a photo with the front camera to adjust to the lightning. Furthermore, even if the phone captures the photo every time the device is unlocked, the image is not stored as the photo will be deleted permanently once the light is analyzed by the device which will be taking just a few milliseconds.

There is no official word from Samsung, regarding the same, but we can expect this feature to be added to the companies budget segment handsets in the near future. Once the update completes, the option to add the auto brightness feature should be found in the phone’s display settings. What is your view on this move from Samsung? Do you think it will be useful?
