Samsung started rolling out a massive update for the Galaxy S23 series in mid-June, and it's been slowly reaching more markets around the world, except for Samsung's home country of all places. The June 2023 update that was dubbed a “super update” first rolled out in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines, and a week later, it landed in Europe. Then it made its way to the United States, and now, it's finally available in South Korea.
The massive June 2023 update for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra in South Korea carries firmware version S91xNKSU2AWF5 (via @tarunvats33). It suggests that the update might indeed be slightly different than what most of the world got through the AWF1 firmware.
A different changelog, but the same features?
According to the official changelog machine translated from Korean, this June 2023 update for the Galaxy S23 series improves the emergency SOS feature, adds 2X zoom for Portrait mode, adds a “function to batch delete movie clips for multiple Motion Photos,” and applies stabilization code.
The changelog does not mention subtle improvements to haptic feedback, Night Mode improvements, fixed autofocus, or smoother One UI transition animations. But these features might and should still be there for Korean Galaxy S23 users.
As usual, people whose phones are eligible for the update can trigger the download process by opening the Settings app on their devices, accessing “Software update,” and tapping “Download and install.” Users who prefer manual updates through a Windows PC should be able to download the official firmware files from our website as soon as they're available.
