Samsung Galaxy S23 HDR vignetting issue will fix with next software



Samsung Galaxy S23 September 2023 update Brazil

Samsung is continuously improving the camera capabilities of its latest flagship lineup. Now, tipster claimed that the next Samsung update will fix the HDR vignetting issue of the Galaxy S23 series.

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.

After analyzing the error log shared by the user, in the reply, a Samsung executive explained that “the problem occurs due to a mix of negative EV input frames containing the same contour pattern, and applying LTM after HDR output will make the problem worse.”

Earlier, the same source shared an image so users can better understand what’s the HDR-related problem on the Galaxy S23 camera. When captured in certain scenarios, the photos taken by Galaxy S23/+/Ultra get affected by HDR problems, which can be seen at the edges of the subject.

In order to fix the issue, the South Korean tech giant is reportedly working on optimization of the exposure value (EV) frame and local tone-mapping (LTM). As the May patch is available in select markets, we may see the camera SW in South Korea and China.
