Samsung is bringing a host of the Galaxy S 27 ‘s new camera and software features to last year Galaxy S and Note 20 lineups in a software update, the company announced today . The new features include camera functionality like Single Take and Night Hyperlapse, as well as new gallery and sharing features. Samsung didn’t provide an exact date for the update’s release, but said that it would be rolling out to select markets, including the US, “in the coming weeks.”
We were particularly impressed with Single Take when we tried it out on the Galaxy S Ultra . The feature lets you hit the shutter button once and let the phone automatically capture a bunch of different camera effects at once. Single Take might not produce the best quality photos, but you get a fun selection without too much effort. There’s also Custom Filter, which automatically generates a photo filter from a pre-existing photograph, while a more advanced pro video mode gives you more granular control over your filming settings.
The features will be a welcome addition for any existing or prospective owners of last year’s Samsung devices. We generally liked the new features when we used them on the Galaxy S lineup, and now they’re available on older hardware that’s often available at a fraction of the cost of this year phones.
