Samsung Galaxy S23 series started getting April 2023 update in South Korea, which includes several camera-related contents including changes, bug/issue fixes, improvements, optimization, and new function. However, the update changelog doesn’t seem promising as it lacks hidden content.

Below, you can check the content mentioned in the changelog (machine translated):

Changelog

Camera Super Steady function

  • Image quality has been improved and shooting guide text has been added for the ‘Super Steady’ function, which allows stable video recording in dynamic situations such as running.

Apply stabilization code

  • Stabilization code related to terminal operation has been applied.

Apply Google security patch

  • Security-related stabilization code has been applied.

The S23 lineup’s April update is not limited to just image quality improvements and the addition of guidelines while using Super Steady mode in the ultrawide sensor. The firmware weighs about sizzling 1 gigabyte, and no doubt, it has a lot of stuff to dig out.

Galaxy Z Flip 6

The anticipated Galaxy Z Flip 6 is rumored to elevate the foldable phone experience with a cover screen that could feature a 90Hz variable refresh rate.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra blows away Huawei Pura 70 Ultra with anti-reflective screen

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra anti-reflective screen

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra supremacy continues with its one-of-its-kind anti-reflective screen. Huawei Pura 70 Ultra was in the headlines following the launch but failed to impress when compared to Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra among others.

IceUniverse posted a video showcasing the screen reflection on many flagships. The video displays the light reflection impact on the screens of OPPO Find X7 Ultra, Huawei Pura 70 Ultra, vivo X100 Pro, Xiaomi 14 Ultra, Galaxy S24 Ultra, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Huawei Pura 70 Ultra brings an innovative camera tech, but the lack of an anti-reflective screen can’t be filled with it. Apple also lags behind Samsung in terms of the most stunning screen visibility, and this trend might not be ending anytime soon!

The embedded video showcases the flashlight reflection on panels of all the tested smartphones. Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max and Chinese flagships including Huawei Pura 70 Ultra failed to reduce the glare of the flashlight, which the S24 Ultra significantly declined.

When tested without a flashlight, the Galaxy S24 Ultra again proved superior among all. Thanks to Corning’s exclusive glass, the OLED offers vibrant colors at full capacity. At the same time, rivals look to producing faded colors, which isn’t an OLED fault, but glass’.

Samsung and Corning partnered to develop the Gorilla Armor glass. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the only smartphone that boasts anti-reflective glass tech, which reduces reflectance by up to 75%, enhances display readability, and minimizes screen reflection.
