    Samsung’s older flagship phones are receiving some camera features of the latest Galaxy S21 series. Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series now have access to camera features such as portrait mode in low-light conditions through a new software update.

    The new software update is available through firmware version G98xxXXU7DUC7 for the Galaxy S20 series and N98xxXXU1DUC8 for the Galaxy Note 20 series, according to a report by Sam Mobile. This update is rolling out first to users in Germany. It’s expected to reach other markets soon. Nevertheless, Galaxy S20 and Note 20 users can check if they’ve received the update by going to Settings > Software Update.

    Samsung introduced portrait mode in low-light conditions with the Galaxy S21 series. This feature is now available on the Galaxy S20 and Note 20. This update also adds three new effects in portrait mode. These include backdrop, high-key mono, and low-key mono that let you change the background colour to black, white or one that’s chosen by the camera app.

    This update also adds support for using exposure or the maximum exposure possible in night mode. Galaxy S20 and Note 20 users can also use pro mode with the ultra wide camera. These are some pretty cool features that last year’s flagship phones can now offer to users. A more interesting camera feature on the Galaxy S21 that is ‘Director’s View’ hasn’t been released yet for the older flagships. This feature shows what all the four cameras of the phone are recording in the viewfinder.
