    The Galaxy S23 series offers impressive camera performance, but there were a few minor issues that Samsung needed to solve. A few reports claimed that Samsung would release an update to improve the camera performance of its latest high-end phones. Today, Samsung has confirmed that it has released a significant camera update to the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra.

    A Samsung Community forum post from the company's executive revealed exactly which camera aspects of the Galaxy S23 have been improved. These improvements have been released as a part of the second March 2023 software update released to the Galaxy S23 series in South Korea. It comes with firmware version S91xNKSU1AWC8 and has a huge file size of around 922.88MB.

    Galaxy S23 camera update improves speed and image quality in various modes

    The company has improved the autofocus speed and accuracy, along with the speed of the Camera and Gallery apps. The company has also improved the sharpness of the ultrawide camera in low-light situations. The company has also enhanced OIS performance and banding issues. It also solved the blurriness problem in some camera modes.

    1. An improvement in the Gallery app allows you to immediately delete photos that were just captured and are getting processed.
    2. The autofocus algorithm has been changed, so when you press the shutter button, the camera takes a photo even if the frame is out of focus or not completely set. However, if you want the camera app to capture an image only after the frame is in focus, you can change the behavior from the Camera Assistant app (Camera Assistant » Prioritize Focus Over Speed ON).
    3. Sharpness has improved, and the flicker has been reduced while capturing videos using the ultrawide camera in low-light situations using the Super Steady mode. The camera app also displays a notice that explains that Super Steady mode needs good ambient light for better image quality.
    4. Fixed the bug, which sometimes displayed a green line on the left side when using the rear-facing camera in the Photo mode.
    5. Improved the video stabilization when the resolution is set to Full HD 60fps and the Auto FPS setting is turned off while using the rear-facing camera.
    6. Improved the banding issue that appeared in the sky in mid-low ambient light and when using high resolution (50MP or 200MP). The overall sharpness has been improved in 50MP and 200MP modes. Samsung has also solved the intermittent blurring issue by enhancing the OIS performance.
    7. Samsung has also solved that image quality issue when the Night mode is turned off, and the Camera Assistant app is set to the following setting: Shooting Speed » High Resolution » Speed Priority.
    8. The camera issue where face recognition didn't work after ending a video call using a third-party app has also been solved.
    9. Samsung has also improved the stability of the camera app when the frame has moving subjects.

    All these camera improvements and fixes will be released in other countries soon. However, they could come as part of the April 2023 update since we are already approaching the end of March. We will update our website with more information about this update for the non-Korean markets.
