In the ever-evolving world of technology, Samsung has been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to smartphones. Recently, South Korea has seen the launch of a highly anticipated update for Samsung’s new flagship devices, which aims to improve the photographic capabilities of these devices. Along with this update, users will also benefit from the latest Android security patches for the month of April 2023.
The latest update being referred to specifically upgrades the software of the Samsung Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra to version S911BXXU1AWC8, S916BXXU1AWC8, and S918BXXU1AWC8, respectively. This update brings a significant improvement to the photographic sector, as well as enhances the overall performance of the smartphone. In addition, the update includes the latest Android April 2023 security patch, though Samsung has yet to disclose the specific vulnerabilities in its interface that have been addressed.
Samsung implemented several camera improvements as part of this update. For instance, autofocus improved, making it faster and more accurate. Additionally, the Gallery operations have been optimized, allowing for faster deletion of images that were just taken. Furthermore, the ultrawide camera has significantly improved sharpness when capturing videos in low-light conditions. The update also addresses the green line bug that affected some images. Finally, video stabilization has been improved in Full HD 60fps and low-light conditions, enhancing these devices’ overall video-capturing experience.
It is important to note that the update also addresses a couple of issues that some users had reported. Specifically, it fixes the image quality problems that occurred when the Night Mode was turned off and the Camera Assistant app was set to “Shooting Speed » High Resolution » Speed Priority.” Additionally, some users had reported issues with the camera not recognizing faces after ending a video call using third-party video calling apps.
- A function has been added to the gallery so that you can immediately delete photos that are being processed immediately after taking them with the camera.

However, if you want to shoot after completing Focus as before, please change the settings in the latest Camera Assistant.
