Samsung has confirmed today that a bunch of new camera upgrades are arriving on the Galaxy S22 devices with a new software update. The update brings with it enhanced QR code scanning as well as image quality improvements, including better night mode photos.

While the Galaxy S23 Ultra has been in the news a lot lately thanks to the rumor mill churning out a plethora of leaks, the Galaxy S22 series of phones are still less than a year old, and as such Samsung hasn’t stopped improving the devices. The company has now confirmed that a whole host of camera improvements are on their way to the Galaxy S22, the S22+, and the S22 Ultra. Additionally, a few new features will also make it to the older Galaxy S21 phones.

First, Samsung states that, like the wide and ultrawide camera, the telephoto shooter will also be able to capture Hyperlapse video post update. The company also confirms that it is developing “Celestial Hyperlapse” to allow users to capture timelapse videos of the cosmos.

Secondly, the Galaxy S22 smartphones will also get image and video quality improvements. Samsung suggests that it has further optimized memory and AI engine in the photo, night mode, and video capture. The company has also tuned HDR and color reproduction in photo mode. Similarly, the sharpness and contrast adjustments that Samsung pushed to the main camera in the June update are also making their way to the ultrawide and 3x telephoto shooter.

Next, low-light photography will also see a few notable upgrades after the update. Samsung claims that the night mode images will have better colors as well as enhanced brightness in the dark part of the photos. Coming in a future update, the company is also promising betterments to photos taken in extremely low light through AI.

Finally, QR code scanning on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 phones is also getting some much-needed love. The QR code scanning area will now be bigger, and the codes will now be scanned faster when using the option from the Quick Panel. Users will also be able to tap on a code to scan from the camera app.

Aside from the Hyperlapse video on the telephoto and the improved QR code scanning that are also coming to the Galaxy S21, the photo and video enhancements are limited to the Galaxy S22 devices.
