Samsung announced today that the latest software update for the Galaxy S22 series will make all triple cameras much better. The company has added some new features to the camera in the software update. The key feature of the new version is the addition of a telephoto lens in the rear hyperlapse mode. Due to user demand, it was added, and now the flagship models can use it.
The Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones are all covered by these updates from Samsung:
- The telephoto camera will be able to record hyperlapse videos, and the navigational features of the QR scanner will be improved.
- The Hyperlapse option in the Camera app previously only allowed recording with the wide and ultrawide cameras, but a third 3x option is now available. The company also said that it is working on Astro Hyperlapse, which is a unique feature that will let customers take even more beautiful pictures of the night sky.
- The QR scanner will have a larger scanning area and will offer a tap to scan if the app cannot find the code on its own. Additionally, there was a flaw that is currently being fixed that prevented you from just dismissing the message behind the QR code and required you to either close the app or go to the URL.
- The areas of HDR performance and colour reproduction have also seen improvements. Additionally, the Photo, Video, and Night modes’ memory usage and AI performance have been improved. Additionally, stabilisation will be enhanced.
The company is also pushing the Hyperlapse and QR Code updates for the Galaxy S21 series, but the other performance improvements are only available for the S22 cameras and are not likely to be made available for earlier-generation flagships.
