Samsung is working on “Bright Night,” a low-light camera feature that could go toe-to-toe with Google’s Night Sight. The South Korean company could introduce this new feature on the Galaxy S10.

According to XDA-Developers, the most recent One UI (based on Android 9 Pie) beta for the Galaxy Note 9 contains lines of code that mention “Bright Night.” The Samsung Camera APK includes strings of code indicating that the feature will let users take bright pictures even in dark conditions and take multiple shots and combine them together for brighter pictures.

It is unclear when the feature will be released, but XDA said it’ll likely appear first on the Galaxy S10 and stay as an exclusive for some time. After all, Samsung did keep the scene optimizer feature limited to the Galaxy Note 9 before rolling it out to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. The same goes for the Super Slow-mo that the company launched first on the Galaxy S9 before adding it to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.

Low-light camera features aren’t new to smartphones nowadays. OnePlus has Nightscape, Xiaomi has Night Scene, Huawei has Night Mode and Honor has Super Bright Mode. Among the brood, Google’s Night Sight — debuted on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL — for the Google Camera app is the most popular because it clearly showed the capability of the technology.

These features work in pretty much the same way in which they take numerous photos and combine them into one. This results in a more detailed and brighter picture than a usual low-light photo.

The rumor mill has been churning out a lot of details about the upcoming Galaxy S10, including the price and release date. The phone is also said to come in three models: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10 Lite. The third variant could come with a flat screen, though all models are believed to have Infinity-O displays.

The Galaxy S10 series could also be the last to have a headphone jack. Other rumors claim that a 5G model is in the cards and that there could be a model with three rear cameras and an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, these should be taken with a grain of salt.

The Galaxy S10 is expected to be unveiled sometime in February, right before Mobile World Congress kicks off. MWC 2019 is scheduled to run from Feb. 24 until Feb. 27, and it will take place in Barcelona, Spain.
