One of the biggest surprises that Samsung dropped this year was the Note 10 camera.
While the Note has always been popular, it’s definitely the quirkier cousin of the S-Series. And yet, the tenth itieration of the device was bequeathed with some cool camera features that were missing from this year’s flagship S10.
Now Samsung is seeking to fix some of the most glaring omissions.
When a phone retails at $1,699, it can’t just be good, it has to be superb. It needs to deliver features you don’t get on other phones, maintain excellence across all the standard metrics, and be able to handle pretty much any situation, whether it’s work, play, or just a bit of movie watching. And while there are a few things I wish Samsung had included on its latest big-screen flagship, the Galaxy Note 10+ is damn near perfect.Read more
The manufacturer has confirmed that the S10e, S10, S10+ and S10 5G will all be receiving a tonne of new features via a software update.
The S10’s Night Mode will now be extended to support the front-facing camera. It will also receive Live Focus, Super Steady video stabilisation and Live Focus Video.
This means that several different bokeh effects can be added to photos and video via the selfie cam. The video editor is also getting an upgrade for improved usability.
It will also receive AR Doodle compatibility, allowing for AR drawings and messages to be added to photos and video recordings.
In non-camera updates, the S10 series will now be able to support Samsung DeX for PC. This allows the device to be connected to a PC or Mac via a USB cable.
If you prefer the wireless life, Link to Windows support is also being added, meaning you can wirelessly connect an S10 to a Windows 10 PC. From there you can browse the device, sync photos and send/receive messages.
Other updates include a simplified and quicker versions of Samsung Pass and some changes to the Messages app for easier access to files.
The software update will begin rolling out today in Europe, with other markets soon to follow.
