Samsung is developing a patch to fix camera problems on its new Galaxy S20 Ultra flagship smartphone.
Reviewers around the world noted a number of issues with the high-end device’s camera system.
These problems included the unreliability of the camera’s focus, especially in low-light and close-up shots. Excessive skin-smoothing was also an issue on the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Speaking to The Verge, Samsung said it was working on improving the camera’s software to iron out these bugs.
“The Galaxy S20 features a groundbreaking, advanced camera system,” Samsung said.
“We are constantly working to optimize 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.”
