Galaxy S22 series is soon getting its biggest camera update in months


Last updated: August 29th, 2022 at 07:10 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra are among the best camera phones in the market, but users are still not completely happy with them. In particular, users expected their phones to perform even better regarding HDR, noise in low-light videos, and capturing images of moving subjects. And the company seems to have finally listened.

Samsung announced today that it would soon release a software update to the Galaxy S22 series to improve the camera performance.

Shooting hyperlapse videos using the 3x telephoto camera, ‘Astro Hyperlapse’ mode coming soon

With the new update, the phones can capture hyperlapse videos using the 3x telephoto. The South Korean firm also said that the Astro Hyperlapse mode is in development, and the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will soon get the feature.

QR code scanning improvements

Samsung is also improving the QR code scanning feature. With the upcoming update, the company is making the QR code scanning area bigger and making the scanning process even faster. If the phones detect a document first, a QR code inside it can’t be scanned, and the South Korean firm is changing that with the new update. You can now tap on a QR code inside a document and force the camera app to scan it.

The stock camera app on the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra can’t scan a QR code again once the first scan is dismissed. Samsung is fixing that bug, and the upcoming camera update will allow a user to tap on the QR code to scan it again.

Improved video stabilization, AI performance, HDR, and night mode

Samsung is also improving the HDR performance and color reproduction in the Photo mode. It has also optimized memory usage and AI performance in Photo, Night, and Video modes. The company claims that the upcoming update will also improve video stabilization and image quality in videos.

With the June 2022 update, Samsung improved the natural sharpness and contrast of the wide-angle (primary) camera. Those improvements are now coming to telephoto and ultrawide cameras on the Galaxy S22 series. The South Korean firm also claims to improve the colors and exposure (of dark areas) in the Night mode.

The company said that it is already working on improving the camera performance in ultra-low-light conditions and that improvement will be released to the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra soon.
