A few weeks ago, Samsung released an update to its operating system for its Android devices, which added a very interesting feature called ‘moon mode’. What is your function?
According to Andro4all, a portal specialized in technology, this new function of the South Korean firm allows users to take better photos of the Moon, the only natural satellite of the Earth.
According to the publication, the ‘ moon mode ‘ of Samsung phones is a function derived from the ‘night mode’ that works thanks to artificial intelligence and intelligent scene detection systems.
What phones have it?
To check if your mid-range or high-end smartphone has this tool, it is necessary to check what version of the operating system it has. If you have One UI 2.5 or higher, you can use it.
To verify this, go to the ‘ Settings ‘ of your cell phone and look for the option ‘ About phone ‘. You will get a lot of information about your computer, such as its model, processor, storage, RAM, software version, etc.
How to use it?
1. Open your team’s camera.
2. Activate AI-based scene detection mode.
3. Aim for the moon
4. A blue circular icon will appear with a crescent inside.
5. When that symbol is on the screen, press the button to take the photo.
The following video posted on YouTube shows how a user uses a Samsung Galaxy S20 +, a smartphone that has a 30x zoom, to take a picture of our main natural satellite.
