A reliable source says the “camera optimization” update will be substantial. The same informant has also noticed issues in HDR performance on the Galaxy S23.

For fairness, it is worth noting that we were pretty content with the S23 cameras – they earned 4/5 for their cameras in our assessment and, even better, obtained 4.5/5 in our testing.

Can Samsung fix it?

The reviews of these phones seem to demonstrate that they have excellent cameras. Yet, a few difficulties have been raised (opens in new tab) regarding the cameras not performing as expected. It is hard to know the magnitude of these issues, though it is inevitable that some users are affected.

At the moment, it’s uncertain what enhancements and repairs the rumored update will offer. Still, if you have had unsatisfactory results with your Galaxy S23 device, the upcoming software patch might be enough to solve the issues.

The Galaxy S23 has a triple-lens 50MP+12MP+10MP rear camera and a 12MP front-facing camera. The Galaxy S23 Ultra has similar selfie camera specifications but boasts a quad-lens 108MP+12MP+10MP+10MP rear camera setup.

These updates bring forth new features and capabilities while eliminating any potential bugs or issues that may have been present. As a result, phones are becoming increasingly more functional.

Mobile photography has been included in the latest leak, where no modifications have been made to the hardware of the Galaxy S23 or other smartphones. However, improvements to the coding could mean that photos and videos have been enhanced to offer better results.

One piece of evidence of the progress made in computational photography is that modern smartphones can capture a vast amount of data with their cameras and refine and transform this data into a final output. This process can be enhanced with software updates.
