Samsung trademarks possible Galaxy S10 camera feature: Artistic Live Focus

Samsung has filed a trademark application for a new camera feature named Artistic Live Focus. Chances are, we will see this feature arrive in the upcoming Galaxy S10 and its different variants.

Galaxy S10 camera: Artistic Live Focus

Samsung is keeping its IP lawyers very busy these days. Recently we saw all kinds of new trademark applications surface – from various blockchain-related features to a set of new augmented reality marks. However, a trademark filed yesterday and published today might shed some direct light on a possible new Galaxy S10 camera feature.

In the European Union, Samsung wants to register the term Artistic Live Focus (PDF), as Galaxy Club points out. The description included in the application makes no secret of what the trademark is intended for: ‘Smartphones … computer software for processing digital images.’ Of course, the existing Live Focus feature present in many current Galaxy devices provides the biggest hint as to what Artistic Live Focus could be: an extended mode for making photos with a sharp foreground object and a nicely blurred background.

As to the artistic part, we can only imagine what Samsung might have up its sleeves. Perhaps, more manual control options will be added to the current Live Focus mode. This is, however, nothing more than our own speculative interpretation.

Mind you, it is no secret Samsung will try to wow the world with the Galaxy S10’s camera setup. After all, every single S10 variant will have two or more cameras on the back, with the big Galaxy S10 Plus even sporting a triple or quad-camera setup. Also, aside from the release of one or two cheap devices in the Galaxy M series, we fully expect the Galaxy S10 to be Samsung’s next big device to hit the market. The launch of the Galaxy S10 is expected to take place on or around February 20, with the release in early March.

I think it will come with Pie on Note9 and S9 because they said that “exciting new camera features would be coming in January”

In my opinion, that’s why you do not have to buy s10. The S8 and S9 are almost identical, stereo sound could also be implemented via software on older devices. The dual kammera on the s9 is not really good at night either, images are being hushed up via the software. I think the s10 will not be groundbreaking except the high price. Samsung should learn from the mistakes of Apple and do not get it

You maybe wrong here as the S10 will finally get a npu which will be a big difference and allow for better processing of the images like in the Huawei p20 pro. This will vastly improve the image quality. True smart phones are getting very similar in terms of actual performance and value to be delivered. Fully agree the high prices caused by apple is stupid! Even the Chinese oem are following this trend too. The s9 was not a recommendation for an upgrade from the s8 as it’s practically the same phone at a much higher price point but… Read more »

Probably, more or less, it will give users the possibility to interact (add or remove) background or foreground. It will be present in the new arriving devices, but probably will be offered to older devices with more than on camera per side via software update.

Artistic live focus sounds interesting. Maybe we can put our faces on the ceiling of Michaelangelos Sistine Chapel!! If it’s good hopefully it will come to Note9 and S9 too as it is just software.. 🙂

Certainly should come, Samsung has been putting new camera features on older devices quite often in recent months, and hopefully that will be the case with the Galaxy S10 stuff as well.
