The Samsung Galaxy S10 phones have received a number of updates, with most improving on the few flaws the devices had at launch. The June OTA appears to be doing the opposite, however, as a number of users have reported a new focusing bug after installing the update.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 phones were launched back in February and have received timely security patches. While the updates have generally brought fixes and improvements, the June patch may have done the exact opposite, with owners of the S10 phones reporting a new camera bug.

According to the users over at r/ s10, after installing the June update, apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and Messenger now have issues focusing when the camera is open. Interestingly, the camera app doesn't appear to have any issues of the sort.

It's not just anecdotal, either, as multiple users corroborated the issue on the same thread. Snapchat, in particular, is seen as the biggest culprit. That's about par with what we've come to expect from Snapchat on Android devices.

In any case, we expect this bug to be fixed when the July update comes around. The July update will also likely bring major camera improvements to the T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon models, so it's one to be on the lookout for.
