Samsung Acknowledges Camera Blur Issue on Galaxy S23 and S23+: Fix Coming Soon

Earlier this year in February, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S23 series, featuring the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ flagship phones. While these devices boasted an enhanced camera experience, some users encountered a camera blur issue specifically in close-up shots.

Samsung has now acknowledged this problem on its European community page and assured users that a software update will address the issue. The company also provided an explanation for the cause of the blurring and suggested a workaround to prevent it.

According to Samsung's community page, the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ suffer from a slight blurriness around the subject in close-up photos. The company attributed this to the bright aperture of the rear wide-angle camera, which results in a blurred background. To rectify the problem, Samsung plans to release a software update that will resolve the camera blur issue.
