Published

on


Samsung has released a new update for one of the Good Lock modules, the camera assistant app. The application will now allow you to take photos with 2X Zoom capability in the stock camera app.

Before the update, users were able to use the Zooming up to 30X in the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ and up to 100X in the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but you could lose the image as you set the higher zoom because, after increasing the zoom, you will get the digital zoom, which gives pixelated pictures.

Now with the new update, the company will give the functionality of 2X Zoom, which processes the images by cropping the image taken by a high-resolution sensor. This functionality will also be available in the video super steady mode for the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

To get the latest functionality, you have to update the Camera Assistant app to the latest version. For identification, you can check the latest update by its version number, 1.1.03.1. Additionally, the device will also be updated to the August 2023 security patch.

With the new Camera Assistant update now available for new Galaxy foldables, the app is now available on 22 Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S23/S23+/S23 Ultra, Galaxy S22/S22+/S22 Ultra, Galaxy S21/S21+/S21 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20/Note/20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold 5/Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 4/Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3/Flip 3, and Galaxy Z Fold 2.

The Galaxy AI includes various generational AI features, but Circle to Search is the most praised one.

At the moment, Circle to Search only authorizes users to search images or text by circling them, but soon this feature will offer new functionalities that will permit you to copy and share selected areas as images. You can easily select the portion on display you want with a tap, circle, or scribble with Circle to Search, and then this will let you tweak the selected area. 

Copy image and Share image buttons will pop up while you select something; undoubtedly, it is effectively a quick as well as easy way of capturing part of the screen to go alongside the existing screenshot options on Android devices. However, at the moment, it is not exactly clear when these two options will be rolled out widely, but they are soon to be expected.
