Samsung Galaxy S23 Series Camera Update Changelog
Samsung has started rolling out a new camera update for the Galaxy S23 series in India. This is an update aimed at making the already impressive camera performance even better. It brings improvements to various camera app features available on these smartphones.
The team has added the ability to click portrait shots at 2X and improved 3X low-light photography on all three models. The camera app’s viewfinder used to appear jittery in low-light conditions which has now been fixed. It has fixed the camera autofocus issue but it is unknown if the banana blur issue has been resolved yet. This is an issue affecting Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ users which the company said is happening due to the wide aperture of the main camera lens.
The update is said to have changed the Night Mode image processing. The Photo Remaster tool can now be used to correct distortions at edges for photos clicked using the wide-angle camera. Users can also correct distortions for images shot with the primary sensor within the 1-1.5x zoom range. Camera Assistant’s Adaptive Pixel function can now be disabled if needed. These are just some of the many camera improvements that the latest update brings.
Samsung has also released June 2023 security patch with the update. It brings fixes for more than 50 security flaws. The new update has firmware version S91xBXXU2AWF3 and is available as an over-the-air (OTA) update. It should arrive on your device anytime soon but if you want to check for the update manually, you can do so by visiting Settings -> Software Update -> Download and Install.
In related news, Samsung is reportedly working on the One UI 6 beta update for the Galaxy S23 series. It will be the next major Android OS upgrade for the flagships as it will be based on Android 14. The first beta release is tipped to happen in the third week of July. The company is expected to begin with limited beta testing and follow it up with a wider public beta test.
