With the launch of the Galaxy S22, Samsung introduced a lot of camera-centric features. Now, the company has announced that some of those features are being rolled out to older high-end phones in the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S, and Galaxy series.

The company’s older high-end phones have already started getting the new camera features in South Korea, and other markets will get them before the end of H1 2022.
