Following Apple, Samsung Adds Slow Motion Recording for Front Camera in One UI 2.0

Samsung rolled out the One UI 2.0 beta update for the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10+, as well as the Galaxy S10e first in South Korea and eventually in the USA in early October 2019. The update contained various new features like increased compatibility for dark mode and focus mode in the Digital Wellbeing section, changes to call alerts and much more. One of these features was the ability to record slow-motion videos using the front camera on these devices.

Slofie Feature Added in Galaxy S10 with New Android 9.0 Update

As it turns out, the slow-motion front camera recording feature is being rolled out to the stable Android 9.0 Pie update for the Galaxy S10. This is strikingly similar to the Slofie feature that was introduced with the iPhone 11 lineup.

To access the slow-motion selfie feature on the Galaxy S10, you will have to update your device with the latest version of Android 9.0 Pie. Once this is done, when you open the camera application to use the front camera to record video, you will get the option to record in slow-motion. There isn’t any setting for this feature right now and so we cannot alter the frames per second for the slow-motion video.

The performance of the slow-motion selfies in the Galaxy S10 is not at par with that to the Slofies on the iPhone. The video suffers from jitters now and then. However, the feature is still in beta and it is expected to improve with a later update.

Other Features from the Update

Along with the slow-motion front camera video recording capability, the latest update for the Galaxy S10 also comes with other features like Auto Hotspot and easier Bluetooth device control.

The Auto Hotspot feature makes it possible for your device to automatically share the internet connection with another device in the vicinity that is logged in to the same Samsung account.

The new update also brings a Media and Devices button in the notification shade, which allows the user to have better control over any external device connected to the phone using Bluetooth or other means.

The latest Android 9.0 Pie update for the Galaxy S10 also brings the October 2019 Security Patch for Android 9 which patches any security vulnerabilities in the Android software to make your device less prone to attacks and surveillance.
