In the coming weeks, Samsung will start rolling out an update for S10 and Note 10 phones that will bring select S20 features to the older devices. One of those features is Single Take, which uses deep learning to capture several versions of the same moment using different cameras. The AI feature shoots as many stills and videos as possible in 10 seconds to be able present users a large selection to choose from. It can also pick the "best" shot based on composition and other elements in case they'd rather let it do the choosing.

An improved Night Mode is coming to the S10, while Night Hyperlapse for night videos will make its way to both S10 and Note 10 devices. S20's capability to create custom filters will also be part of the software update, as is the Pro Video feature that lets users adjust settings like ISO, shutter speed and exposure level.

Clean View and Quick Crop are coming to the older phones, as well. That means similar shots will be automatically grouped together in the devices' Gallery app, and users will be able to zoom in on an image and easily crop it to only show that particular part of the photo. Samsung is also bringing Quick Share to older phones, giving users a way to share photos, videos and other files to people nearby. Finally, the update will include the Music Share feature, which allows a friend to connect to the same speaker a user is connected to via Bluetooth even if they don't unlink their device.

Samsung doesn't have an exact date for the rollout yet, but it will be available in the US. A spokesperson said in a statement:

"Samsung continues to add value to users' devices by helping them discover the newest innovations and features. We are committed to providing the best mobile experience for Galaxy users by bringing together cutting-edge hardware with simple, easy-to-use software. The update will be released in select markets in the coming weeks, including the United States, delivering the latest Galaxy S20 experiences to Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices."
