Verizon Galaxy S10 lineup receives the April security patch, and several of the same camera features that were recently rolled out to the Galaxy S20 devices.
If you’re not using a Galaxy S10 as your regular driver, you’ll be pleased to learn that a nearly identical update is now available for Samsung’s older flagships.
The official changelog has already been published by Verizon, and it appears that Galaxy S10 owners will be getting three cool new camera features. The software version can vary depending on which Galaxy S10 model you have.
Pro Mode – Ultra Wide
To begin with, it has finally added support for the Ultra-Wide lens in the Camera app’s Pro mode. Galaxy S10 users have been clamoring for this function since the beginning.
Second, it introduces new Portrait mode effects. When using the Camera app’s Portrait mode, users can now choose between the High-Key Mono, Low-Key Mono, and Backdrop effects.
Auto Night Mode
Last but not least, the Auto Night Mode feature has been added to the Picture, Portrait, and Hyperlapse camera modes. This ensures that the phone can sense low light conditions automatically and switch to Night Mode to capture the best possible images.
The Verizon changelog for the Note 10 and Note 10+ is as follows:
The updates and security enhancements made in the patch will be officially detailed on the same day, April 5. Official information on security enhancements finally arrived on Samsung’s site after Google rolled out the upgrade to Pixels.
Google released three security updates this month, all of which are of moderate severity. Samsung also included 37 high-priority updates with 6 critical severity fixes in this update.
The list of devices receiving monthly updates is currently very long, and some versions have already been updated as of April 1.
Samsung’s true flagship series is normally among the first to receive monthly updates, and the new flagship family, the Galaxy S21 series, began receiving them on March 29. The download for S21 devices is over 1GB in size and began in India, but has since spread across the globe.
The update is now available for the Galaxy S20 FE (4G first, 5G as of April 12th) and S10 series, and it was first seen on the Galaxy S9+ in Germany on April 1. The Galaxy S10 Lite entered the fray on April 2nd, and the update was also spotted on the Galaxy S20 Ultra on T-Mobile, followed by the rest of the Galaxy S20 lineup in Germany a few days later. The remaining areas should be close behind.
Below is a list of Galaxy S devices with the April update:
- Galaxy S10 — G97xxXXU9FUCD
- Galaxy S10+ — G97xxXXU9FUCD
- Galaxy S10e — G97xxXXU9FUCD
