Galaxy S10 Night camera mode not included in latest US software update

There’s a new firmware update rolling out for carrier-locked Galaxy S10 models in the United States. Sprint is the first to release it for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. While it does bring the security patch for the month of May 2019, it doesn’t bring the dedicated Night mode.

Samsung rolled out a dedicated Night mode for the Galaxy S10’s camera last month. Firmware updates for the US with the April 2019 patch didn’t include this mode as well. It seems that there’s more wait involved for users based in the United States.

Latest US Galaxy S10 update doesn’t bring the Night camera mode

Sprint is rolling out firmware version G970USQS1ASDA, G973USQS1ASDA and G975USQS1ASDA for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ respectively. The update is being rolled out over-the-air. You will soon be able to download all of the firmware files from our database as well.

The update weighs in at just under 200MB and doesn’t bring much except the May 2019 security patch. So the only thing users can look forward to with this update are the dozens of bug fixes that are part and parcel of the latest security maintenance release.

Samsung’s dedicated Night mode is definitely not included. It’s basically the Bright Night feature being spun out into its own separate mode. The Galaxy S10 would previously decide when to take a long exposure shot. With the dedicated Night mode, users can do that manually whenever they want. The actual result of these images is more or less the same.

It’s difficult to say when users in the United States will get this camera mode. With the monthly security update out of the way, it may be a month at the very least before they get it.

The new dedecated Samsung galaxy Night Mode is separate from the scene optimizor.
And it’s actually really Good I’ve have been testing it for a month now and it’s definitely its own mode.

It’s not in the Canadian April patch G973WVLU1ASD7 which came out this week, so perhaps Snapdragon is the reason. It was the first thing I tried to find after the update.

Yeah the exonos version which I have .
I have been using it for just under a month and it’s definitely its own mode. You still have the Night scene optimizor with the Night mode.
The New Night Mode is massively better than the Night Mode in scene optimization mode by far.
I took a photo in absolute pitch black using both and the new Night Mode shocked me how much light it managed to find, I’m absolutely happy with it and don’t forget this is coming from a phone camera people seem to forget that.

But it’s probably the worst night mode out of all the other OEM’s which have implemented it i hope samsung do more work on because it’s not rewllly that great to be honest I’m disappointed but it’s better than nothing. I received it on my Chinese verient April patch weeks ago.

MaLiK is right, Samsung’s night mode is worse than other flagships from this year, check the comparisons on GSMarena.
