Huawei Mate 10 series is getting the P20’s Night mode with an update

Huawei is seeding its Night Shot camera mode to the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 10 through a software update.

The firmware BLA-L29C is based on Android 8.0 under EMUI 8.0 and should gradually roll out to the phones. The firmware likely carries some bug fixes and optimizations as well.

Night Shot on the Huawei Mate 10

Huawei’s Night Shot mode premiered on the P20 and P20 Pro and offers a clever way to capture night scenes. It snaps a number of photos and then combines them into a single image with less noise and a brighter exposure.

Night Shot isn’t perfect – moving objects (like cars or people) will get blurred, but it’s a real game-changer when it comes to low-light smartphone photography.
