Samsung introduced the Galaxy A50s as an incremental upgrade for the A50 smartphone. The device was introduced with Android 9 Pie and later received an update with One UI 2.0. Nowadays, it is running One UI 2.5 while users wait for a possible, not confirmed, Android 11 update that will bring One UI 3.1. While the latest Android version does not come, Samsung is rolling out a new incremental update focused in the camera. The update is rolling in India and weighs a little over 200MB.
The update introduces three main features namely – Single Take, Night Hyperlapse, and My Filter. The first one automatically captures multiple photos and even videos with a single tap of the shutter button. The second feature is Night Hyperlapse, it records time-lapse videos and uses long exposure times to capture light streaks in the dark. The last feature is My Filter. It picks images and uses the color data in them to automatically create a filter that mimics that look.
The new camera features for the Galaxy A50s are all rolling out this update. Unfortunately, the update is bringing the January security patch, which is a little bit weird. After all, the Android 10 update came with a February security patch. For now, the update is rolling out only in India. But we expect it to reach other countries in the coming weeks. After all, this is an important update that will further improve the experience of the camera in this phone. The firmware version is A507FNXXU5CUB3. The update has 219MB in size, so upgrading the software will take just a couple of minutes.
