Coming back, camera shutter lag is the delay that occurs when hitting the capture button until the final image processing. A faster shutter speed makes it possible to quietly capture the second and third shots, which was quite low in previous Galaxy phones.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra reportedly decreased camera shutter delay in the high-resolution image capture modes including 50MP and 200MP. It can be further boosted using the Good Lock’s Camera Assistant plugin, but you need to compromise with quality.

According to the tipster, the display crease of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 looks the same as the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It was reported that the next foldable phone will be equipped with a new droplet hinge design to vanish the crease visibility.

Meanwhile, the “100% confirmed” leak points out it’s not changing this year. However, there is a probability of changes in the real product as the company is reportedly testing the durability of the device after applying the new hinge alongside the existing U-shaped hinge.

Various Chinese phone makers adopted the waterdrop hinge technology. Oppo’s Find N2 is a smartphone with the least visible crease in the industry as per the feedback of reviewers. However, durability always remains in priority as the foldable form factor is yet to mature.

Display PWM Dimming Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Vs Apple and Honor flagships

Samsung Galaxy S23 Honor Apple PWM Dimming

Smartphones are rapidly becoming smart and smart, thanks to technological innovations. In a recent development, a display PWM dimming comparison surfaced on the internet revealing that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is way too behind in this aspect against Honor.

Twitter user TECHINFO45 shared a video displaying the screen flickering on three flagship phones. In the video, Honor was the star of the show, leaving Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro in the dust, when it comes to display PWM dimming.

Higher display PWM dimming frequency of Honor 90 Pro made it a clear winner over the world’s two most powerful smartphones. FYI, PWM is a technique for controlling the brightness of a display panel by varying the width of the light pulse. You control how long the screen remains on or off.

PWM dimming frequencies:

  1. Honor 90 Pro 3840Hz
  2. Galaxy S23 Ultra – 240Hz
  3. Apple iPhone 14 Pro – 480Hz

Lowering the brightness causes the screen to be off for longer than it is on, which is perceived as lower brightness. The higher frequencies the lower rate of stress on human eyes that’s what studies say but it doesn’t mean Samsung panels are not eye-friendly.

It’s worth mentioning that some smartphone users may find them sensitive to the display flicker effects, while some aren’t. Here’s the smartphone equipped with a display having a higher PWM dimming frequency that would do a lot better, thanks to the low rate of flickering on the panel.
