PSA: Director’s View camera feature still exclusive for Samsung Galaxy S21 series

The Galaxy S21 series is the latest flagship offering from Samsung which comes with the most up-to-date hardware and latest software installations. However, the company introduces innovative and massive camera capabilities with its every new Galaxy S series.

Following this episode, the South Korean tech giant has added several new and smart camera features with the Galaxy S21 lineup that increases users’ photography experience while using smartphones. Apart from this, the “Director’s view” is one of the major camera functions that come with the Galaxy S21 phones.

However, Samsung has already delivered select camera features from the Galaxy S21 series to its older flagship devices such as Galaxy S20 and Note 20 alongside the One UI 3.1 firmware update. On the other hand, the company has recently started releasing a huge camera features-related software update for the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 users.

The latest firmware allows Galaxy Note 20 and S20 users to capture portrait photos in low-light conditions and the Night Mode can now accessible with the ultra-wide camera. Moreover, there are three new effects also added in the Portrait mode including backdrop, high-key mono, and low-key mono, which lets users change the background color to black, white, or random color.

Director’s View is still exclusive for Samsung Galaxy S21 series!

Meanwhile, it seems like the Korean tech giant remained the Director’s View camera feature exclusive for the Galaxy S21 series as it does not come with this big camera firmware update for the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 models because of limitations in the processor’s ISP (image signal processor). However, we are still hoping that the OEM may soon provide Director’s View feature for these units after further optimizations.
