It ought to shortly enter additional markets, including the US. The publication’s snapshot of the changelog shared notes a number of new camera features. That’s not it, though. On its South Korean Community Forums, the firm just published a lengthy post outlining the new features for the phones.

Telephoto camera support for the Galaxy S22 series will be available in the hyperlapse mode. The 3X telephoto camera will now be supported by Samsung for making hyperlapse videos, to start. The 10MP telephoto camera on the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22, and Galaxy S22 Ultra all has a 3X optical zoom. The latter has a 10X telephoto lens as well, although it doesn’t appear to support hyperlapse recordings. Samsung claims that it is creating Astronomical Hyperlapse for the phones, though.

The QR Scanner in the camera on the devices is also receiving a number of functional upgrades. Samsung is expanding the scanning area to facilitate and speed up recognition. The phones can now also find and scan QR codes inside of recognized documents. Previously, you couldn’t scan a code if the camera detected the document before the code and you tried to scan a code that was contained in a document. The scanner has to be restarted with the focus on the QR code.

You’ll be able to scan the same code once again with the next camera update. Software improvements for memory and the AI (artificial intelligence) engine in different shooting modes, including Photo, Night, and Video, will also be made for the Galaxy S22 trio.

Additional performance improvements will enable better HDR (high dynamic range) and color fidelity in images. This should raise the photographs’ overall quality. Additionally, software enhancements for videos are being made to enable better filming.
