The future camera update for the Galaxy S23 will improve your portrait taking skills
If you like your Galaxy S23 camera system today, you might like it even more next month as Samsung appears to be rolling out a 2x zoom for portrait mode.
The 2x zoom will be available with the next software update, which is expected to be available later this month.
We’ve reached out to Samsung to confirm that the flagship range will come with 2x zoom. This story will be updated if we hear anything.
The fixes don’t stop there. A current leak from a well-known industry insider Ice Universe on Twitter (opens in new tab) indicates that Samsung developers are working to fix an issue with the Galaxy S23 Ultras HDR function (High Dynamic Range). The bug is a bug that causes images of objects taken either in low light or indoors to have a problem strange glow for them (opens in new tab). The effect is enhanced when the primary light source is in the shot. Object detail is also lost, making things look rubberier. According to reports, the cause is that something went wrong (opens in new tab) with the “Exposure frame and local tone mapping” on the S23 Ultra.
The text in the Ice Universe leak is in Korean, but according to another translation provided by SamMobile, it says “Improvements are in progress and will be included in the next release,” which appears to refer to the patch coming later this month .
In 2023, there was a whole slew of camera fixes coming to the Galaxy S23 Improving the stability of video recordings, but there is still more to do. As early as March, people began complaining about photos taken with the The phone appears strangely blurry. It seems Samsung hasn’t fixed the issue yet recent Reddit posts (opens in new tab) show that people are still struggling with this problem. It is unknown if the tech giant is working on a fix for this particular issue. I hope so.
The Galaxy Watch 5 features FDA-approved AFib monitoring, narrowing the gap with the Apple Watch
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just given Samsung the green light for the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN) feature for the Galaxy Watch series.
Newer models, like the Galaxy Watch5, come with heart monitoring tools like on-demand ECG recording (opens in new tab) and HR alarm. IHRN is unique in that it specifically searches for signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib) using the device’s ECG (electrocardiogram) capability and BioActive sensor. Atrial fibrillation occurs when a person suddenly has a fast, irregular heartbeat. Samsung claims (opens in new tab) that the condition is “widely regarded as a warning sign of serious cardiovascular problems that can increase the risk of stroke.” Some cases can even be “asymptomatic,” leaving people completely unaware of what is going on in their bodies.
IHRN’s goal is to provide users with “proactive safety solutions” and a “more holistic understanding of their cardiovascular” health.
How it works
According to the announcement post, the way it will work is that you need to activate IT via first Health Monitor app (opens in new tab). Once the BioActive sensor is turned on, it will check for “background irregular heart rhythms”. When the sensor detects a certain number of irregular heartbeats in a row, the Galaxy Watch warns you of “potential atrial fibrillation activity.” The device then prompts you to perform an ECG measurement “for a more accurate measurement”.
Samsung states that IHRN does not alert you to “every episode of irregular” heartbeats that indicate atrial fibrillation. In addition, the feature does not detect “other known arrhythmias”. (opens in new tab)It is also not intended for use by persons under the age of 22.
IT will be introduced on devices with the A UI 5 Watch update, which starts later this year. It will be available first on the “upcoming Galaxy Watch” models, presumably the expected ones Galaxy Watch6, before moving on to “Previous Issues”. Feature availability may vary by region and carrier. Given the FDA’s involvement, it’s probably safe to say that Galaxy Watch owners in the US will receive an IHRN.
We asked Samsung if it has any plans to expand the new warning system to other regions around the world. We also wanted to know why IHRN does not notify users of every case of arrhythmias indicative of atrial fibrillation. This story will be updated at a later date.
It’s nice to see that the Galaxy Watch can finally keep up with the competition. Apple, for example, added their own FDA approved AFib tool for the apple watch 4 Back in 2018, it was shown to detect the condition with 98 percent accuracy. more recently, Garmin added their own version from technology to Venus 2 Plus.
It goes without saying that you can’t catch up forever. Samsung has lagged behind its rivals and it’s unknown how the tech giant plans to overtake them, but there are some tantalizing possibilities.
According to a February report, Apple is currently working on one blood glucose meter for an upcoming version of its wearable. However, development is still in its early stages and it may be years before anything comes to fruition on the Apple Watch. We’re not saying that’s Samsung’s next avenue for the Galaxy Watch, but we’re not saying it’s not, either.
