Samsung Galaxy Note 9 update brings camera improvements, Night Mode still missing
Samsung is pushing out a new update that brings a couple of improvements to the Galaxy Note 9's camera. It's not something major, but it's those little things that make life easier that many users are looking for more often than not.

The South Korean company is delivering the April security patch (May patch for some) to the Galaxy Note 9 users and is using the opportunity to add some enhancements to the phone's camera. As SamMobile points out, the update adds a new option that enables Galaxy Note 9 users to switch FOV (field of view) between standard and wide-angle when taking selfies.

There's one little addition that adds something related to the Night Mode, but it's not actually a Night Mode like that included in the Galaxy S10 phones. This update adds an option to schedule the Night Mode for the camera UI. Basically, you can either let the GPS track your location and automatically switch to a dark theme after sunset, or you can set your own schedule for that.

The Galaxy Note 9 doesn't include a Night Mode for the camera app like the Galaxy S10, but that doesn't mean Samsung won't bring it in at some point. It's just that it's now saving it for its most recent smartphones.
