Users of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series of devices should be familiar with the Bright Night feature, which many had hoped to be a competitor to Google’s Night Sight camera mode on its devices or even Huawei’s Night Mode. However the feature turned out to be neither, and was at most just a means to take pictures in very, very, very low light whenever the phone deemed it necessary, without any of the advanced algorithms that the two aforementioned features offer.
Samsung then updated the feature into its own standalone camera mode aptly named Night Mode. One of the biggest benefits here is that users now have the ability to select when and where they would like to use Night mode, as it is now a camera option along the lines of Photo, Video, Slow Motion, and Panorama.
With the June update Samsung brought Night Mode to the Samsung Galaxy S9, and now Samsung has started rolling out the feature to the Note 9 also.
The update is part of the N960FXXU3CSF9 firmware, and also brings along the ability to scan QR codes without using the Bixby Vision app.
Users report the feature works as well on the S9 as the S10, so the Note 9 should also see great benefit from the app.
The firmware is just under 704MB and is currently rolling out in Germany. It is expected to roll out rather slowly around the rest of the world.
