Samsung has responded to some problems that early reviewers have discovered with the camera system on the new Galaxy S20 Ultra. The company says it is working on an update to improve the camera, although it does not recognize or acknowledge a specific problem when the fixes will be available.
We have seen the problems ourselves with both focus hunting and overbearing smoothing skin. Our review will be posted soon.
“The Galaxy S20 has a groundbreaking, advanced camera system,” says Samsung in a statement The edge. “We are constantly working on optimizing performance to deliver the best experience for consumers. As part of this ongoing effort, we are working on a future update to improve the camera experience. “
Reviews from publications, including PC Mag and Input have emphasized that the autofocus system is unreliable, often takes a long time to lock onto a subject and sometimes does not. We are still putting the finishing touches on the Verge assessment, but we can confirm that we have found the same. The camera also displays aggressive image processing in certain situations, with a tendency to make the skin extremely smooth.
The camera system of the Galaxy S20 Ultra is one of the most important selling points, including a huge 108-megapixel sensor and a periscope telephoto lens that, according to Samsung, is usable up to 100x zoom. Keep looking tomorrow for our review to see how it all works in practice – at least, how it works now.
