The Samsung Galaxy S10 series of smartphones launched just a few months back and took the world by storm. These are the first smartphones from Samsung which incorporate an in-display fingerprint scanner. The smartphone has a unique on-screen cut-out for the front-facing camera and boasts of outstanding image capture quality. It seems like Samsung isn’t doing improving the camera performance of the Galaxy S10 trio. According to some users in Switzerland, the company is rolling out a new software update to improve camera performance.
This new update brings with it the May security patch, improvements to the camera’s Night mode and new Live Focus options. The Night mode which was first released with the Galaxy S10 smartphones performed well below standard and couldn’t match up to the offerings from its competitors. The Night mode on the devices was too bright so Samsung has now tweaked this setting to offer lower noise and longer shutter speeds. The icing on the cake is that Galaxy S10 users will also be able to use the ultra-wide f/2.2 camera in Night mode.
The new option in the updated software will allow users to use the telephoto lens for Live Focus photos. This will help in getting closer to the focused object for more impressive background blur. As is customary with software updates, they roll out in waves depending upon regions. Unfortunately, apart from Switzerland, users in all other countries might have to wait until the end of the month to receive this update.
