Samsung has recently launched its latest flagship device, the Galaxy S23, which has been receiving positive feedback from consumers. However, some users reported issues with the camera, which has now been addressed in a new update rolled out by Samsung. The update with build number S91xNKSU1AWC8 is currently available in Korea and comes under the March 2023 security patch with a file size of 922.88 MB. Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra are all part of this update.
One of the major improvements in the update is related to the camera and gallery. The gallery has a new function that allows users to delete photos immediately, providing a smoother experience. Additionally, the autofocus concept has been changed, allowing users to take photos even when the focus is not completely set. However, users can also turn off this feature and prioritize focus over speed by going to the camera assistant settings.
Furthermore, the update enhances ultra-wide camera photography by improving sharpness and adding notice when shooting Ultrawide in low light. It also fixes several issues related to shooting after Night mode off in low light, face recognition after ending a video call using a third-party app, and improves the stability of camera movements. The OIS is now also more stabilized, resulting in better image quality.
Overall, the latest update for the Galaxy S23 devices brings significant improvements and fixes related to the camera and gallery.
