“Samsung introduced the Night Mode with this year’s Galaxy S10 series”
Samsung has started rolling out dedicated Night Mode to its Galaxy Note9 (review) smartphone. This comes a week after the Galaxy S9 (review) and Galaxy S9+ (review) were updated with the same. The mode is similar to Google’s Night Sight that lets you click images with ample brightness and details in an environment with minimal light. Samsung introduced the Night mode with the Galaxy S10 devices that were launched earlier this year.
According to SamMobile, the mode is coming with the latest monthly update version N960FXXU3CSF9 for the Galaxy Note9. It comes with June 2019 security patch and is 703.93MB in size. The report adds that the Night Mode works just as fine with Galaxy S9 smartphones as it does with Galaxy S10 (review), and it’s likely to be the same on Galaxy Note9. The changelog mentions that camera performance has been improved as well. Other than the Night Mode, the update also brings the ability to scan QR codes without using Bixby Vision. The update is currently available in Germany via OTA; however, it’s likely to expand to other countries including India as well.
In related news, Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy M40 (first impressions) in India. The handset recently went for sale in the country with a starting price of Rs 19,990. Its major highlights include a 6.3-inch FHD+ Infinity-O display, Snapdragon 675 SoC, triple rear camera setup, and Android 9 Pie-based OneUI. There is no earpiece on the phone; instead, it has “Screen Sound” technology that vibrates sound through the display.
