Samsung Galaxy S10 will reportedly get support for slow motion selfies

The update is also tipped to bring Auto Hotspot, Media and Devices button, October security patch and more

The update is currently rolling out in Germany and Switzerland, but it should make its way to other regions soon.

Remember how Apple touted slow-motion selfies in its new iPhones? Well, it looks like Samsung is getting a piece of that pie. According to a report by Sammobile, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series is receiving a new software update that is introducing the ability to take slow motion videos using the front camera on the phone. Other new features include a function called Auto Hotspot, which allows users to share their internet with other devices that are logged into the same Samsung account. Further, users will now get a Media and Devices button on the notification shade itself, thereby allowing users to control any connected external devices. The update is also said to offer improved fingerprint recognition and the October security patch. As per the report, the update is currently rolling out in Germany and Switzerland, but it should make its way to other regions soon.

Are ‘slowfies’ that big of a deal to warrant another bout of tech one-upmanship? We aren’t the right people to ask, to be honest, since we take so little selfies. But the feature is still relatively young and with the rise of platforms like TikTok, we might see it being put to use in creative ways. Only time will tell if it becomes the next must-have feature or if it will go the way of glasses-free 3D displays.

Samsung Galaxy S10 users can also look forward to getting support for Samsung DeX for the PC. For those who may not be familiar with the feature, DeX for PC allows users to wirelessly connect their PC to their mobile device to see notifications, send and receive messages, and review recent photos. The update is also said to introduce certain camera features introduced in the Galaxy Note 10 series such as Live Focus videos and AR Doodle. Android Police reports that the update is rolling out in the US right now, and should make its way to other markets soon.
