Samsung says update is coming after reports of S20 Ultra focus issues

Some reviewers have reported focus issues, but Samsung says improvements are on the way.

Published onFebruary 27, 2020

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra camera apparently has focus issues.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is one of the most ambitious smartphone photography platforms in a long time, delivering a new 108MP camera, 48MP periscope shooter, and more.

Some reviewers have reported focusing issues though, as the S20 Ultra apparently struggles to bring everything into sharp relief. Now, Samsung has told The Verge that an update is in the works.

“We are constantly working to optimize performance to deliver the best experience for consumers,” read an excerpt of the statement. “As part of this ongoing effort, we are working on a future update to improve the camera experience.”

Samsung pushed out a Galaxy S20 Ultra update (G988NKSU1ATBR) this week that includes the March 2020 security patch and improved camera quality. The update is available in South Korea and will spread to other nations thereafter. It’s not 100% clear if Samsung is talking about this update or a brand-new update, but the fact that they mention “working on a future update” suggests another OTA is in the works.

For what it’s worth, focusing issues weren’t mentioned in our Galaxy S20 Ultra review. In fact, our own Eric Zeman thought that most daytime snaps looked “nearly perfect,” and praised the phone’s low-light prowess.

Either way, Samsung’s phone packs plenty of camera features, such as a Single Take mode to automatically capture photos/videos, 8K video recording, 30X hybrid zoom, and a 40MP selfie camera.
