Samsung is getting ready to provide another camera-related update to its latest Galaxy S23 lineup. The new update will be focused on HDR issues, 2x Portrait and more. Recently, a reliable tipster IceUniverse confirmed that the new 2x portrait mode update for the S23 Ultra will be released soon. The new mode was spotted by a tipster during a testing phase of unreleased firmware for the S23 Ultra.
Ice also claimed that the camera samples were good. Now, a real and live example of the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 2x Portrait Mode is again shared by Ice confirming once again the quality of the sample.

The feature in question is the ability to get 2x magnification while in Portrait mode in the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera app. The South Korean tech giant will use sensor zoom to get 50 MP crops out of the 200 MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor under the main lens of the phone. The resulting 50 MP image will be converted to 12 MP shots using pixel binning. Meanwhile, the update may arrive in 1.5GB size.
