Samsung Galaxy S23 HDR vignetting issue will fix with next software

According to @UniverseIce, Samsung developers are working on camera improvements for the Galaxy S23 smartphones, which also includes a fix for the HDR issue. As the May 2023 patch began to rollout, all eyes are on the next OTA, which could solve the vignetting problem.
