The upcoming low light feature is being called ‘Bright Night’. This is understandable given that OnePlus and Google this year heavily marketed their low light smartphone camera features – Nightscape and Night Sight. Huawei also brought its own ‘Night Mode’.
This feature is not confirmed by Samsung but was found in strings of code in the latest version of OneUI, which is based on Android 9 Pie beta on Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The code clearly mentions the feature.
‘Brighten up this shot with Bright Night,’ mentioned a code. ‘Take bright pictures even in very dark conditions’ says another code. We expect the feature to work in a similar way as the ones seen in Huawei, OnePlus and Google Pixel 3XL. The rumoured Galaxy S10 is expected to see the light of the day during MWC 2019 conference.
Samsung has lately made several strides in the smartphone camera department. The firm recently joined the same bandwagon as Huawei’s by launching the Galaxy A7 (2018) and then broke became the first in the world to launch Galaxy A9 (2018) that has four rear cameras. The setup includes a 24MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture, 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture, 8MP ultra-wide sensor with 120-degree field of view and a 10MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and 2x optical zoom. In total, the smartphone comes with 47MP quad-lens camera. At the front, you get a 24MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
We can expect the same setup in Galaxy S10 if not more.
