Galaxy S10 update with improved camera Night mode now widely available


Last updated: May 24th, 2019 at 11:48 UTC+02:00

The latest Galaxy S10 update, which improves the Night mode and adds a couple of new functions to the camera, is now more widely available. The update, which also bundles the May 2019 security patch, was released earlier this week in Switzerland.

New Galaxy S10 update improves Night mode performance

Samsung added a dedicated Night mode to the camera app of the Galaxy S10 trio last month. It was a much needed addition since several competing smartphones were getting better and better at nighttime photography. However, early results weren’t so impressive, or at least not up to the mark users were expecting. Samsung was surely taking a note of it and has now released another update significantly improving the Night mode’s performance.

The new update also adds an option to use Night mode with the ultra-wide camera. This is another useful addition as the ultra-wide camera has a narrower aperture (F2.2) and hence cannot capture as much light as the primary shooter (F1.5). Lastly, you can now take Live Focus photos using either the ultra-wide lens or the telephoto lens on the Galaxy S10 and S10+. Earlier, the Galaxy S10 trio used the ultra-wide lens for background blur.

Wider rollout now in progress

The latest update is rolling out for all three Galaxy S10 variants. So if you own a Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+, go ahead and check if the update is available for you. You can do that by tapping Download and install in the Software update menu of the Settings app. Alternatively, you can also download the compatible firmware from our database and flash it on your phone.
