While the April patch is welcomed and appreciated, it’s that camera update we’re a bit more interested in. According to the changelog, once the update is applied, owners will have the Ultra Wide lens available when in Pro and Pro Video modes. In addition, you can now add High-Key Mono, Low-Key Mono, and Backdrop effects to your Portrait shots. And finally, Auto Night Mode has been added when using the Photo, Portrait, and Hyperlapse modes for when the camera detects low light conditions. Of course, that can be toggled on and off if you find it annoying.
Following the update, S20 owners will have software version number G981USQU1DUC
- UPDATE 4/21: Verizon posted new build numbers this week with the same list of changes. It’s hard to know what’s going on, but if you check for the update now, it should look as follows – Galaxy S20 (G981VSQU1DUD3), Galaxy S20+ (G986USQU1DUD3), Galaxy S20 Ultra (G988USQU1DUD3).
Go get it.
- UPDATE: AT&T is now pushing out the same update to the Galaxy S20 family on its network. It’s the same security patch, camera features, and build numbers.
