The front camera slow-motion mode is rolling out to Galaxy S10 devices with the latest Android Pie-based update.

At the beginning of this month, Samsung announced a beta program for One UI 2 based on Android 10 for the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e for users in South Korea, which was then expanded to unlocked devices in the USA and possibly other regions too. The beta gives us a glimpse into some of the upcoming features that will make its way to the stable update, including features such as Dark Mode for more apps, Focus Mode within Digital Wellbeing, less intrusive alerts for calls and volume changes, and more. As it turns out, Samsung has also added in front-facing slow-motion videos in the update.

Apple pulled slow-motion front-facing videos into the limelight with the iPhone 11’s “slofie” feature, which essentially allows you to record a very short video that is slowed down for playback. While one can debate the utility of what is a highlight feature on the new iPhone, it is standard behavior for Android OEMs to bring over similar functionality to their customers. As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has done the same by including front-facing slow-motion videos in the latest One UI 2 update, but thankfully excluding the ridiculous marketing name.

Originally thought to be coming with One UI 2 (Android 10), Samsung’s take on the “slofie” is actually rolling out in the latest Android Pie-based update. Galaxy S10 users can take slow-motion videos with the front camera now after updating to the latest version. Another addition with this update includes “Auto Hotspot” which lets you share your phone’s internet connection with other devices logged into the same Samsung account. Fingerprint recognition has also been improved and there are new Quick Settings buttons for Media and Devices.

This update includes the October security patches and is available now in Switzerland and Germany. Expect it to come to more countries later this week.
