The Galaxy S22 Ultra is arguably the best phone at the moment which was launched with several key enhancements in its arsenal. Better displays, S Pen to name a few. But the S22 Ultra's biggest upgrades came with its cameras. Even though there are no major changes to its camera hardware, the phone still saw a significant improvement in quality and offered some cool camera features. This was made possible by the camera software. As you know smartphone cameras these days are part hardware and part software. You don't need the latest hardware to get the best results. So since many of the new camera features of the S22 Ultra are software-based, a lot of you were wondering will we see these features get back-ported to older Samsung flagships?
Well, absolutely and that's exactly what Samsung is doing. Samsung has announced that they will be back-porting the S22 Ultra camera features to their older flagships which include the Note 20, S20, S21, and the Galaxy Z series Foldables.
Now, what are these camera features you might ask. Well, the first one is, Improved nighttime portraits where you can now use the telephoto camera in Portrait mode for night photography. Improved auto-framing function: Where the camera will automatically zooms in and out and pans around to keep up to 10 people in the frame. You can also use this for video calls. But interestingly, the S20 and Note 20 series aren't included in the list for some reason.
Next. Improved camera quality for third-party apps: With the S22 Samsung worked closely with Tiktok, Instagram, and Snapchat making its exclusive camera features directly accessible from within their user interface which improved the quality substantially. Well, Samsung is backporting that feature to the S21 and third-gen Z Foldables.
Again, the S20 and Note 20 aren't included. Also the Z Fold 3 is getting support for the Expert RAW app. In addition, the Pro mode in the main camera app now works with the telephoto camera as well. The update is currently rolling out in South Korea but should be available globally in the next coming days.
With that being said, the color options for the upcoming foldables the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 have been revealed by the display analyst Ross Young. According to him, the Z Fold 4 will be available in three color options: beige, black, and gray. While the Z Flip 4, on the other hand, will hit the market in four color options: gold, gray, light blue, and light violet. To be honest, really disappointed with the color options for the Z Fold 4. Its predecessor was also offered in bland colors and now they are again doing bland colors. Why not give the S22 Ultra's color options. That burgundy and green look really good. Who in the world would want a beige-colored phone?
