New Galaxy S20 firmware update is rolling out to fix camera autofocus

The Exynos-powered Galaxy S20 series is getting its second post-launch firmware update as we speak, version G98xxXXU1ATCH. It’s not yet available over-the-air (OTA) but Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra owners around the world can download and install the new firmware via Smart Switch or from our archive.

You may be eager to learn what changes have been introduced and whether the new firmware addresses any of the issues that have been rumored to be tackled by Samsung next. Well, the biggest change seems to consist of a Camera app update, pushing it to version 10.0.01.98 on all three Galaxy S20 models.

The good news continues, as one of the biggest user complaints surrounding the Galaxy S20 series’ camera performance may have just been addressed with this new update, namely slow autofocus. The camera seemingly benefits from faster autofocus post-update, so if you’ve experienced such issues before then your wait for a fix might be over.

For now, the new firmware update is available only for the International Exynos-powered Galaxy S20 models, but there is no doubt that Samsung will want to bring the same improvements to the Snapdragon variants as quickly as possible.

Once again, the firmware update is not rolling OTA as of this writing, but you can refer to your archive and download it manually. Once it will roll-out OTA, you’ll also be able to install it by opening the Settings app on your phone, accessing the Software update menu and tapping the Download and install option.

Thanks God, because in my case, I haved S10plus 512gb and my mom have now, and I have Note10plus 512gb and is beautiful but I buy s20 ultra 512gb and is the beast! Picture now from Note 10 plus is good but sharpness and clarity on Ultra is insane! In another segment is Ultra with 120herz and 16gb of ram and…beast and I very happy to have update, in daylight it not problem in low light when I put from 1 to 5X in that moment is but in same time it is OK, but this phone must be perfect… Read more »
