Galaxy A50 camera gets Night mode and Super Slow-mo with June update

The Galaxy A50 got the June security update in India earlier this week, promising the usual stability improvements along with a variety of security patches. But as we’ve been tipped by one of our readers via Twitter, the update appears to include a couple of extra features that go by unmentioned in the changelog. Specifically, firmware version A505FDDU2ASF2 seems to bring along Night mode and Super Slow-mo video recording. In addition to that, the phone can now scan QR codes from the camera app without requiring Bixby Vision, a feature that recently came to the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy S10 as well.

Galaxy A50 owners in India who have updated to the June security patch but don’t have access to these two new camera features should try resetting their camera settings. This was also the case for the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A40, which received a regular slow-motion camera mode through a software update and required a reset of the camera settings before the mode was actually usable. You can reset camera settings by opening the camera app, tapping the gear icon to open camera settings, then hitting the Reset settings option found by scrolling all the way to the bottom.

The update also includes fixes to a variety of vulnerabilities; some found in the Android operating system while others are affecting Samsung’s own software experience. You can read all about them in the detailed June 2019 security patch report.

Readers who have not yet received the update on the Galaxy A50 in India should try navigating to the Settings » Software update menu and tap the Download and install option. Otherwise, users can also download the update manually from our firmware database or update the phone using Samsung Smart Switch on a computer.

Have you gotten the Night mode and Super Slow-mo mode with this latest update? Let us know below.

Updated my A50 but didn’t find the QR scanning in camera app. I have reset the camera app. Also tried by pointing the camera at a QR code. In settings of camera app I didn’t find any settings/options related to QR code scanning. Did anyone find it though?

So it is the biggest amusement right from the edge of the week: D on S8 is coughing but this center gets night mode? lol’s strategy i don’t understand at all. Surely the Samsung model will not be for this reason only …

Google before posting comments. Don’t judge the author’s knowledge. Do you even know what is Samsung Smart switch?

Someone should make a Google Chrome plugin that auto hides his comments. It’s getting tiring.

You can’t see the problem? I give up with you I honestly do. You just carry on with what you are doing because you clearly have no consideration for anyone other than yourself. I’m gonna be emailing the authors to voice my concerns about your conduct on the site.

But you know that I emailing authors, Adnan, and Abhijeet with mistakes that I find in articles ?

As I said. You can’t install 4 files firmware using Smart Switch. It is little mistake in article. Read again my first and previous comments.

Read article again carefully !

“Otherwise, users can also download the update manually from our firmware database and update the smartphone using Samsung Smart Switch on a computer.”

If you download firmware from Sammobile database you can’t install it using Smart Switch. This firmware can be installed using Odin.

Of course you can also update phone using Smart Switch, but then you don’t need to download firmware from database.

Am I right ?

All you ever do is copy and paste parts of the article and wonder why you always get negative mark downs. You also were told about leaving multiple comments on the same article but you continue to do it. Seriously, stop trying to annoy everyone. You are single handedly ruining Sammobile.

Seriously ? I don’t know where you see multiple comments. I just add one comment with my opinions and then few comments as replies to another comments. Can not reply to other comments?

He’s got a point. You cannot manually update a firmware by downloading it from the firmware database using Smart Switch but Odin. It’s not possible. Which is why locarno has pointed out that there’s an error in the article and is misleading to non technical users.

@Locarno, Yes, we have fixed that part of the story. Thanks for the heads up.

Well, I recently tested the Night Mode on my S9+ and it does make a noticeable difference against “auto” so, glad to have it!

Got it on Note 9 which became way more competitive, the night mode is almost same as S10 so S9/N9 can almost compete with this year’s flagships

Glad to see you saw the light. 😛 Pro mode is great, but Night mode is better for quick results.

I use the SM-A505F in EU, not in asia. It depends on this fact, that the new features won’t work?
Greats fro germany
