Samsung Galaxy S10 update adds Night mode improvements, new features
Samsung continues to improve the Galaxy S10 family with important new features and additional functionality. The upcoming update focuses on camera enhancements by adding a couple of nifty new features, as well as improvements to the phones' performance when taking night shots.

As the title says, it appears that the Galaxy S10's decent Night mode has just been upgraded to very good. According to SamMobile, the May security update improves the Night mode by allowing users to take much cleaner pictures in low-light conditions.

The differences are quite important as the update reduces noise that sometimes appears in night pictures. Moreover, Galaxy S10 users will now be able to use the Night mode with the ultra-wide camera, and even though noise still pops up in pictures taken with it, they are brighter and more detailed.

Another important improvement is the fact that you can take Live Focus photos with the telephoto lens, something that was only possible with the Galaxy S10 5G. The new addition will allow users to take bokeh pictures of large objects much easier.

Now, the update is currently being deployed in Switzerland as May 2019 security patch, but all three Galaxy S10 units should receive it worldwide in the coming days. We don't have a release date for the United States, so you'll just have to hope it will be rolled out sooner rather than later.

When will Apple allow their phones to take quality night pictures?

As far as I know Night mode in Samsung is not quality picture. Even their daylight photos are too bright and videos sucks compared to iphones.

For day shooting that new S10 5g is better but for night photography I think the Pixel is better

Now we need to have a better potrait mode! More shallow depth of field and a stronger bokeh effect please!

I hope it will improve battery life too. The problem with the night shots seems to be on Exynos versions only. My S10 sucks at night pics. Pocophone takes superior photos with gcam and costs less than a half os a new S10
