The latest software update for the Samsung Galaxy A50 offers an upgraded security patch level and Knox Guard improvements. However, some users have reported that a reset of the phone's camera settings confers new shooting modes. They are "Super Slow Mo" and "Night Mode".

The Samsung Galaxy A50 is a phone that offers the relatively new Exynos 9610 SoC, a 6.4-inch AMOLED notched display, an in-display fingerprint scanner, a 4/64GB base model and triple rear cameras for about US$300. It also allegedly has a new software update, which adds some camera modes that bring its abilities a little closer to those of the OEM's current flagships.

The changelog for this update, which has been posted recently to Twitter, mainly concerns the device's increased security patch level and enhancements for Samsung's own in-house Knox Guard safety feature. However, it is also now reported that a reset of the Galaxy A50's camera settings results in other new upgrades that the OEM failed to mention in its update documentation.

It is claimed that doing so adds the modes Super Slow Mo and Night Mode to the A50's camera app. This may be interesting for the user, as options of these names are also selling-points of the Galaxy S10 series. On the other hand, they may work out differently on the mid-ranger's different hardware. In addition, the actual frame-rate or resolution of the new Super Slow Mo setting has yet to be specified.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
