Samsung Galaxy S20 series is now getting an update from July that improves the camera, among other things
In the Netherlands, Samsung is starting to roll out the July update for the Galaxy S20 series. This not only improves the security, but also the (zoom) performance of the camera of the devices.
Galaxy S20 update July 2020: better camera
The July security update arrives on time on the Dutch Galaxy S20 models. The nearly 318MB major update to firmware version G98 ** XXU3ATFG brings a few significant improvements.
First of all, the rather hefty package brings the security update of the month of July. We would like to list on which points the security is improved. However, as is now common practice, Samsung is rolling out the new patch faster than the explanation of the content. And so we just don't know exactly what's going on yet. We are waiting for more information from Google and Samsung.
What is clear is that the new firmware improves the quality of the camera. It's the umpteenth update in which Samsung is tinkering with the camera performance, and this time the difference is quite visible. At least, on our Galaxy S20 Ultra, especially when shooting with a zoom factor of 30 and higher. Samsung has refined its software editing, resulting in more natural – and often sharper – looking (zoom) images.
How quickly the improvements are on the S20 and S20 Plus, we could not check ourselves. Do you have one of these models? Let us and your fellow users know below if you can see improvements on these devices.
You can now install the new update already install OTA on the unbranded Galaxy S20. During the day, the update will also be available for the other models, for which it is already available via Smart Switch. Exactly the same applies to T-Mobile's branded devices.
If you have a branded Galaxy S20 from Vodafone, or a Belgian model, you can undoubtedly download the update in the coming days or weeks. Today, however, it is not yet available for these devices.
In any case, you will automatically receive a notification as soon as the update is ready for your S20. Or you can check availability directly via Settings -> Software update -> Download and install.
Do you already have the update on your Galaxy S20 (Plus / Ultra)? Do you notice the better / more subtle processing of zoom photos?
