The Samsung Galaxy A70 is now the second A-series smartphone to get the Super Steady Video Mode feature. This is a particular feature that born within the Galaxy S10 handsets. After getting popular among the S smartphones, the feature made a comeback with the premium Galaxy A80.
Now it’s time for the Galaxy A70 users to get this super stabilization mode. Unfortunately, there is a small catch with the usage of this feature. After all, Super Steady reduces the field of view of the camera more than typical EIS, although it creates smoother footage. Take in mind that to record on this mode you’ll be limited to 1080p/30FPS videos.
The update is rolling out in Netherlands and Belgium, at least for unlocked phones. The new firmware boasts A705FNXXU2ASF5 build serial. It weighs in at 500MB and along with the new camera mode, the update also brings some fixes and performance improvements. Unfortunately, the Security Patch remains unchanged and stuck in May 2019.
Notably, the developers increased the stability of the camera and further improved the performance of this upper-midrange handset. Since this is a staged rollout it could take several days to reach all the Galaxy A70 units. A bigger rollout should happen during this week across markets where the handset is available.
Beware with the fact that once installing this update you will not be able to downgrade to an older software version. Since it comes with an updated security policy, once you install it, you can’t get back to a previous build.
