Not to be outdone, Samsung brings Apple's 'slofies' with the Android 10 update


Samsung already announced and released its Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10 series in its hometurf of Korea, but it is now bringing the One UI 2.0 goods to a global audience by issuing an Android 10 beta program for "certain devices, OS, and countries."

If you want to take part in the beta program for your area, though, head over to create a Samsung account if you don't have one, and keep hoping that the beta program will be splashed seductively in your Samsung Members app for you to take advantage of. T-Mobile's Galaxy S10 started getting the goods, and issuing an Android 10 beta a month after Google released its update to manufacturers qualifies for the phrase "update miracle."

We already reviewed the full version running on our Korean models, and you can gawk at all the changelog marvels it will bring to your phone in the video above. Besides the typical Android 10 stuff like better battery stats and dark mode, Samsung adds goodies like a new Trash folder, stickers for the calendar, and, as was just tested, a slow-motion video mode for the selfie camera.

 

Remember the "slofies" that Apple touted during the iPhone 11 unveiling? Well, now Samsung phone users with the Android 10 update will be able to take advantage of the same effects when they are shooting video with the front camera. Pity those Facebook servers that are responsible for the Insta story uploads.

I like such moves just to expose that certain pseudo innovation from a competitor is nothing but a simple feature which can be added along the way without any big efforts.
