Samsung security updates wouldn’t normally be the subject of a news article, but the recent update for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ has brought Night Mode to the phone’s camera app.

The update follows on from the S10’s upgraded Night Mode released in mid-May. Rumour was that the S9 would receive a camera update as well, but it wasn’t confirmed until now.

Night Mode works similarly to the S9’s newer kin, albeit with a little less colour saturation and contrast. The actual light-capturing ability looks to be very much on-par with newer devices.

Another camera upgrade in the June update targets the front-facing lens. Focus and blur post-processing in Live Focus will be enabled for fancier selfies.

The Galaxy Note 9 will receive the Night Mode update, although a firm date is yet to be confirmed. Samsung is expected to push the update out to the Note 9 in the next few weeks.

Currently the June security update is available in south-east Asia, and will roll out to the rest of the world over the next week or so. Owners can check the Settings app for the update.

A YouTube review of this capability in the S10 showed that it is more capable than any current iPhone but less capable than the Pixel phones.

Kudos to Samsung for adding capability to older models

I’m sure Australian Samsung owners can look forward to getting the June update, in October or November, if they’re extremely lucky.
