Samsung to bring One UI 5.1.1 Camera and Gallery features for older Galaxy phones

Samsung is constantly providing new updates for its flagship devices, including the Galaxy S series and Galaxy Z series devices. The updates bring several new features for the devices that improve the UI and other functions of the devices, and now, according to a camera manager at Samsung, the company will soon provide several improvements to the cameras of its devices.

According to his post, several Galaxy S series and Galaxy Z series devices will get camera features and improvements that will give users a next-level experience. The eligible devices are: Galaxy Z Fold4/Fold3/Fold2, Z Flip5/Z Flip4/Flip3/Flip 5G/Flip, S23/S22/S21. Now let’s explore all the new features.

With future updates, Samsung will provide new improvements in the quality of digital zoom in the photo mode for the Galaxy S23 series devices; however, this feature is already available on foldable smartphones. The document scanning mode will also be improved for the Galaxy S23 devices. In simple words, it will improve the definition of the text that is added, as well as be able to remove unwanted elements from the scan.

The Photo and Video editor also receives some improvements and some new functions, like in the photo editor, which will get a new function that will allow you to copy and paste various effects between one photo and another. It will be available on several smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, Fold3, Fold2, Flip 5G, Flip, S23, S22, and S21. Along with this photo remaster function, this will also be the same for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5.

Meanwhile, the video editor also receives some improvements, especially a clarity function that is capable of making the light areas brighter and the dark areas more enhanced to create a three-dimensional effect.

The ability to select multiple photos in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 capture view to easily share and delete them, along with the improved screen composition, means that various camera settings can be easily adjusted in Pro/Pro video mode. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Fold 3, and Fold 2 will be the next contenders to grab this feature.
