The Exynos variants of the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and S10e have already received the July 2019 Security Patch level globally. This update is quite important as it features the most anticipated Night Mode for the stock Samsung camera app. The camera night mode from Samsung will give you as clear phones as the Google Camera’s night Sight for the Pixel phones in low lighting conditions. So no more GCam Night Sight port for Samsung anymore. Simply download the latest OTA update onto Samsung Galaxy S10, S9, and Note 9 for the built-in Camera Night Mode option.
July 2019 Security Patch Level is now rolling out for the Unlocked variants of Samsung Galaxy S10 in the United States. This new update features the most anticipated Night Mode option integrated into the stock camera app. This is a huge update for the Snapdragon variants. Samsung’s Night Mode is similar to NightSight introduced by Google in its Gcam for Pixel phones. According to comparisons, Samsung’s camera is now as powerful as the Google Camera when it comes to taking pictures in low light conditions.
The new OTA update comes in a large package of over 600 MB in size. For the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e, it brings a new firmware build number G973USQS2ASGB, G970USQS2ASGB, and G975USQS2ASGB respectively. As for the Unlocked variants, the software build numbers are G973U1UEU2ASGB, G970U1UEU2ASGB, and G975U1UEU2ASGB for S10e, S10, and S10 Plus respectively.
As for the Note 9 it features software version N960U1OYM2CSF9 and for the unlocked variants – N960U1UES2CSF9. The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices have also been receiving the latest camera night mode for the carrier Xfinity Mobile with Baseband version G960USQU6CSGF and for the unlocked variants with build numbers G960U1UES6CSG4 and G965U1UES6CSG4 with security patch level July 1, 2019 for the Snapdragon variants. The new features include camera Night Mode and feedback for the navigation gestures. Same goes for the Galaxy Note 9.
Unfortunately, T-Mobile and other carriers still haven’t rolled out the camera night mode for the Note 9 and Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus. However, carriers like AT&T successfully rolled out camera Night Mode for all the Galaxy S10 variants.
