What you need to know
- Samsung just announced that it's bringing previously S20-exclusive feature to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10.
- Single Mode, Night Hyperlapse, Custom Filter, Pro Video, and an advanced Night Mode are all making the cut.
- Both phones will also get an improved gallery and upgraded sharing features.
Samsung says it wants to bring "more of what you love" about the Galaxy S20 to its previous generation flagships, the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 10.
First up among the new feature is Single Take, which is Samsung's version of an AI-powered, very long-running burst shot. It takes a whole bunch of photos for up to 10 seconds, and then automatically chooses the image that it believes is the best of the bunch.
Both phones will also get access to the improved Night Mode from the Galaxy S20, as well as the latter's Night Hyperlapse mode.
For the Snapchat and Instagram geeks out there, Samsung's Custom Filter will let you go beyond the usual slate of image filters and let you make your own, which you can later reuse as well.
For videographers, the update will unlock Pro Video mode, which gives the user more granular control over various settings like ISO, shutter speed, and exposure while recording videos.
When you're done taking the perfect image/video and beautifying it with your own filters, Samsung will also let you share your prized works of art with ease using Quick Share, the South Korean giant's take on AirDrop for its phones. Music Share, meanwhile, lets you "extend your paired Bluetooth connection and you don't need to disconnect for a friend to play their music on a speaker or car stereo."
And when you're done exchanging photos, you can return to the new and improved gallery, which features two main upgrades: Clean View and Quick Crop. The former groups together similar images taken on the same day, while the latter lets you zoom into an image and quickly make a cropped copy of the image with that view without needing through a bunch of menus.
The company says the software update will start rolling out to both phones starting March, though the exact dates will vary by region and model.
