Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is receiving a new update packed with two noteworthy features. Both these features are aimed at enhancing the user experience. The first one is a night mode scheduler and the second one is about changing the selfie camera Field of View (FoV).
As the name suggests, Night mode scheduler is all about giving the freedom to users so that they can schedule when night mode should get activated on its own. It should be noted that Night mode here refers to the system-wide dark theme and not the Night mode that you get in the camera application. While most devices come with night mode scheduling functionality out of the box, Samsung has enabled it via a software update.
The second feature in the update adds a toggle to the camera application while taking selfies. This toggle allows users to switch between standard 68-degree FoV and wider 80-degree FoV as per the need. The standard FoV is enabled by default and a user will have to switch to the wider one if he wishes to capture more people or subjects in the same frame.
The new update is confirmed to be released in Germany and should come to other regions soon. It is an over the air update which means Galaxy Note 9 users should see an update notification as and when it becomes available for their particular unit.
