August 2023 Update Camera and Gallery features for the Galaxy S23

According to the Samsung community moderator, with the August updates, the Galaxy S23 devices will get some improvements as well as some new features. For instance, the device will gain the capability of recording 8K at 30 fps and QHD at 60 fps in super steady video mode, which will enhance video quality. Now you will get a 2X zoom option,which will be available through Camera Assistant. This option will provide optical lens-level quality.

In addition, the camera processing of the Galaxy S23 also gained AI deep learning technology similar to that of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5, which improved the zoom picture quality. Now the effects of the portrait mode, including Big Circle, Color Pint, and Glitch, can take videos at 30 fps, which is an increase of 8 fps from previously, when it was limited to 24 fps.

As Samsung promised earlier, the update will adjust the focus position to reduce peripheral image blur when shooting close-up subjects in the rear photo mode of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+, and it will also improve motion blur when shooting moving objects in photo mode. In addition, it also Optimized details by improving the blur of normal illumination when shooting high-pixel 50MP or 200MP in photo mode and optimizing shadow noise.

Lastly, the update also optimized the file size of the motion photos, which means you will get a well-compressed size of photos without losing the quality of the pictures.
