Update: July 2, 2019 (02:13 PM ET): Both AT&T and Verizon are rolling out a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 family packing June’s Android security patches and an improved Night Mode (via XDA developers and Droid Life).
Samsung rolled out Night Mode to the S10 series earlier this year but has managed to improve its performance on Exynos chipset-based models. Now, these AT&T and Verizon updates are thought to be the first to deliver these improvements to Snapdragon-based devices in the U.S.
Night Mode dramatically improves picture quality when shooting in low-light and has been a popular fixture on 2019 flagships since arriving on the Google Pixel 3 series and Huawei P20 series last year. You can take a look at what it does for the Huawei P30 Pro and Google Pixel 3XL in our comparison at the link.
As well as improved security and better low-light snaps, the new S10 build introduces a built-in QR scanner for Samsung’s dedicated camera app, making QR code scans an easier process.
Other U.S. carriers should be preparing to roll out a similar update to their Galaxy S10 series phones; we’ll let you know when we spot them. If you’ve received the update yourself, let us know what you think of the improved Night Mode in the comments.
