This feature is in fact not an advance feature. Many other phones have already got their own night mode to maximize photo shooting in the low light conditions.
Previously, Samsung had the “bright night” feature for the same purpose . It’s just that bright night can only be found in the “Scene Optimizer” menu, and users cannot set it freely, whether to activate the feature or not.
In the bright night mode, the phone will automatically detect the light conditions when the user will take a picture. If the conditions around are very low, this mode will be activated automatically.
But this is what is lacking. Users cannot set it freely whether bright night will be used or not. Everything depends on the mobile AI that sees the light conditions around.
Therefore, Samsung took out this feature and made it into “night mode” separately from the Scene Optimizer feature. So, users can decide whether they will activate the mode or not.
As quoted by KompasTekno from SamMobile, Monday (4/22/2019), this update will be added for all lines of the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10e, the regular Galaxy S10, and the Galaxy S10 Plus.
This update can be downloaded when updating software menu in the phone settings. Of course, users must set up their internet connection to download this update. This feature update has a file size of 205.18 MB.
In the future, the night mode feature will be specified as one of the shooting modes, together with the “Pro” and “Video” modes.
Previously, “night mode” was popularized by Huawei via the P20 Pro phone launched last year. This special mode allows the camera to capture photos that appear bright and clear even being shooted at night.
Other developers immediately launch similar night mode apps in their respective products. For example, Google with the Night Sight at Pixel 3. Oppo did not miss this opportunity by applying the Night Shot on their smartphone.
