Samsung Galaxy S9 Rear
 

Thanks to a security update, the Samsung Galaxy S9 now has a night mode built into the camera app. This means that those of you who own the older flagship, or are considering purchasing it to save a bit of money in comparison to the newer models, can now capture low-light images handheld.

The night mode was introduced to the newer Galaxy S10 smartphone range and if the results from the S10 are anything to go by, S9 smartphone owners will be pleased they now have access to this mode. 

"The night mode has produced some great looking photos, with good levels of detail, and good colour reproduction," ePHOTOzine comment from the Galaxy S10 review. 


As well as the Night mode, the update brings the ability to adjust the level of bokeh when using Live Focus mode with the selfie camera. 

There's no news if the update will be added to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, yet, but they usually do follow. 
 

How To Update The Samsung Galaxy S9
