Samsung’s Galaxy S20 will not go on sale until March, but the company is clearly still preparing for launch by making improvements to its flagship camera before it reaches shelves.
As those incoming improvements were spied on by the people of TizenHelp who discovered that Samsung was initially releasing a new firmware version for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which seems to have first affected phones in Korea, probably in order to launch it to other territories where S20 phones will fall.
Furthermore, the G988NKSU1ATBR firmware version will apparently improve camera quality, including automatic retouching with the flash to improve the quality of your snapshots on a phone, which already promises a fairly stellar configuration.
What should we expect from this large camera specifications update?
When the S20 Ultra was unveiled at the Samsung Unpacking event along with the normal S20 and the Galaxy Z Flip, the 6.9-inch screen device also comes with great camera specifications.
It has a 108MP main camera, a 48MP telephoto camera and an ultra-wide 12MP camera on the back. It also includes a 40MP selfie camera to complete its sophisticated set of five cameras.
In the Samsung Galaxy Ultra S20 camera test, we were quite impressed with the photos it offered, offering brighter and more detailed images than its predecessor. Therefore, any additional improvements that can help Samsung match the camera settings in its closest rivals can only be a good thing.
In addition to making those improvements to the camera, Samsung is also launching the March Android security patch with the Ultra the first phone to receive it.
The S20 Ultra goes on sale on Friday, March 6 in the United States and on March 13 in the United Kingdom. Therefore, there may be time for Samsung to refine the features even more before it can get its latest flagship in its hands.
