In recent months, since the official launch, many users around the world have reported a disappointing glitch in the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus models: focusing the camera causes distortion of certain areas of images that appear blurry. Now, about four months late, Samsung admits that there is indeed a problem.
The source of the problem, according to Samsung's Polish-language blog post, is the sensor's wide-angle camera system, which is designed to make images in dark areas brighter. "While testing the camera capabilities of the S23 or S23 Plus, you may have noticed that the area around the subject looks a little blurry when shooting close-ups," they wrote in the blog, adding that they are working on developing an update to resolve the issue, so they did not specify when.

In the meantime, until the long-awaited feature update arrives, the company has offered some tips to help you improve your shots: shoot from a distance of about 30 cm from the object, shoot portrait (vertically) - shooting horizontally or diagonally may look blurry. In addition, Samsung emphasized that the premium model, the S23 Ultra, is not affected by the issue.
