The camera gets a new shutter speed option that is present in the Pro Mode. The new app draw gets useful features like Doze, app permissions, etc.
Also added to the update are Quick Settings toggles in the status bar for Private Mode. New emoji characters have been added too. As for the fingerprint recognition, the device will vibrate only if it does not recognize the finger. Updates can be set to be installed at night during you sleep.
