Samsung isn’t the same company it was some years ago, at least not its software department has changed quite a lot. In the past, the company wasn’t very concerned in providing updates for devices out of the flagship spectrum. Devices in the low-end and mid-range departments hardly could expect a major Android update. The company changed its philosophy with the deployment of One UI and almost every device released last year with Android 9 Pie is now rocking Android 10 and One UI 2.0. To make things even better, the company even provides incremental updates with new features. The latest device to be contemplated with this treatment is the Galaxy A51.
The Galaxy A51 was released several months ago and since then Samsung is rolling out some security updates with software improvements. In May, the device received One UI 2.1 update. The latest version of Samsung’s software was introduced with the Galaxy S20 family and brought some new goodies to the firmware. Despite the arrival of the update for the A51, some of the camera features were missing. Now, the South-Korean giant decided to fix this mistake.
The new update introduces new camera modes for the mid-range champion
The new update version is A515FXXU3BTF4 / A515FOLM3BTE8 / A515FXXU3BTE7 and has 336.45MB in size. Among the new goodies introduced by this update we have Single Take, My Filters, Night Hyperlapse features in the camera app. Besides, we have Samsung’s usual set of improvements and bug fixes.
The Single Take feature allows the user to capture a short video of an interesting moment. The AI will suggest a variety of different photos, gifs, and short videos that can be easily shared on social media. My filters, allow you t create your own style of photos with different styles and colors for future shots. The Night Hyperlapse creates hyper-lapse videos with all the Night mode settings. Worth noting that at the time of this writing, the update is rolling out for smartphones in Malaysia. However, more markets should receive the same treatment in the coming days.
The update also carries June 1, 2020, security patch ensuring further improvements to performance.
