Samsung planning a night mode for the Galaxy S10 called “Bright Night”

Yordan, 21 December 2018

First it was Huawei P20 Pro and its Night Mode, then Google introduced Night Sight with an Android Pie update for all Pixel devices, and other companies are now following. According to a report by XDA Developers, Samsung is also going in this direction and is developing a camera feature called Bright Night. It is expected to arrive with One UI in the upcoming Galaxy S10.

Night Mode vs Night Sight

The feature is effectively taking multiple pictures and combining them into a single brighter image with more detail in low-light environment. It isn’t overexposed, does not rely on LED Flash - the feature just wants you to hold the phone slightly longer. According to the source, decompiling the stock Samsung camera apk in the One UI/Android Pie build of the Galaxy Note9 revealed a similar feature from the Korean manufacturer.

Night Mode vs Night Sight

We are not sure if this will be exclusive to the Galaxy S10 or Samsung is planning to roll as part of the whole One UI package. When introduced, Bright Night will join the family of Nightscape by OnePlus, Night Scene by Xiaomi, Super Bright Mode by Honor as well as the abovementioned Night Sight and Night Mode. The phone is expected to be unveiled at MWC 2019, although the company might decide to host a separate party away from all the fuss in Barcelona.
