Galaxy S10 update with improved camera Night mode now widely available

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.

    • Yet again here you are talking sh*t. Do us all a favour and disappear. This site isn't for you, it's for serious Samsung enthusiasts not mindless idiots that make stupid comments on every article. Go away

    • Why? What should sammobile authors know more than all the other news sites that it's worth it?

  • Just notice that when i was on note8, monthly updates is earlier compare tonmy s10+. On my note8 i got as early as 2nd week of every month. S10+ always got it last week of the month

    • Samsung bundles other bug fixes and features with the security patches updates, a newer phone will have much more to be fixed and users will expect new features. Seems logical that the update takes longer.

      Once the software is stabilize waiting for Q, I'd assume the S10 will get faster updates.

  • What about note9 and s9+ and international warranty acppect in Nepal i purchase my note9 in other country but still have Samsung international warranty but here's in nepal Samsung coustomer service don't know about this

  • "The latest update is rolling out for all three Galaxy S10 variants."
