After being at the helm of the mobile industry, Samsung was facing quite a fair share of criticism for their sluggish approach towards launching updates for most of their older devices. But with the launch of their Android Pie based UI update for old devices, the criticism has died down a bit. Samsung has not just started offering Android Pie in their older models of smartphones, but they are also bringing in some key features of their flagship phones to their premium older devices.
Samsung’s June update for the Galaxy S9 brings a new night mode feature to its camera. When the night mode dedicated camera was launched in the Galaxy S10, lots of fans were questioning whether they would bring this dedicated camera to their older flagships models or not, and now all of us have got the answer we wanted.
It is not unusual for Samsung to bring in features from their new high range flagship models to older flagship models. Last year, the Super Slow-mo and AR Emoji features of Galaxy S9’s camera made their way to a lot of different flagship models of the mid-range segment.
The latest update also enhances the functionality of other applications such as Contacts, Messaging and Gallery. This new update fixes the eleven vulnerabilities in the software. There is also an added changelog feature which enhances the security of this device.
Aside from the night mode, the overall quality and performance of the camera have also been improved. Now with this update, the front camera also features a background blur intensity bar for selfies, similar to the one found in the rear camera. At the same time, the background blur adjustment bar of the rear camera adds in more ‘intensity levels,’ allowing its users to have better control over the background blur while capturing selfies with Live focus. One thing that needs to be mentioned is that you can’t just expect picturesque quality from a camera with the update, but there will be some notable improvements overall. The Samsung Galaxy S9 was the first phone that made its way in the market with aperture cameras and hopefully, this new night mode camera update goes well with its aperture cameras.
This update is not available globally as of now but it is expected to make its way to every country in the coming few weeks.
