Software update brings Samsung Galaxy S20 photo and video features to the S10 and Note10

Samsung Galaxy Note10.

Samsung will be bringing its innovative photo and video capturing features from the Samsung Galaxy S20 series to their predecessors, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note10 series. To get hold of these software features, S10 and Note10 users will need to trigger a software update on their devices come Q2 2020.

Below are the select Samsung Galaxy S20 features that will come to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note10 series phones, after the update.

 

Image and Video enhancements: Single Take, improved Night Mode, Night Hyperlapse, Custom Filter

Single Take, as the name implies, uses integrated AI technology to capture several photos and videos with one press of a button, before it recommends the best shot to you. The Single Take AI captures images and videos of up to 10 seconds before it starts its recommendation. This feature will be available on both Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note10 series phones.

Improved Night Mode will come to the Galaxy S10 series. In contrast, Night Hyperlapse - the option to record a hyperlapse video in low-light conditions, will come to the Galaxy Note 10 phones except for Note 10 Lite devices.

Custom Filter will allow Galaxy S10 and Note10 series users to create filters with styles and colourisations from their favourite photo. The custom-made filter becomes a reusable filter that can be applied to future photos.

Pro Video now available on the Galaxy S10 (left), Shooting video in Pro Video mode on the Galaxy Note10 (right).

To add the cherry on top, Pro Video will be available on the Galaxy S10 and Note10 series with this software update. Users can then adjust settings like ISO, shutter speed, and exposure level when recording the video, on top of switching between front and rear cameras while recording.

 

A gallery that sparks joy

Besides photo-taking software, the update will also bring Intelligent Gallery for image organisation. When a Galaxy S10 or Note10 user enables Clean View, the Gallery app will automatically group up similar shots of the same subject. This is perfect if you tend to store multiple copies of selfies taken in a single session since they'd be under the same group for easier revisiting.

Users can also customise the thumbnail shown with a preferred photo. Additionally, there's the Quick Crop option at the top left-hand corner if you want to make some rapid framing edits.

 

Easy Sharing Capabilities

Two sharing features available on the Galaxy S20 series phones will also come with this software update. Quick Share will let you preview who your nearby contacts are, and allow you to share large files with multiple people at once.

Music Share, on the other hand, allows you to extend your paired Bluetooth connection, so that there's no need for Galaxy S10 and Note10 series users to disconnect from their speakers or in-car stereo system when a friend wants to play a song as well.
