The Samsung Galaxy S20 series has been officially released in Malaysia on 6 March 2020. Just in time for this occasion, the company has rolled out an update for the S20 Ultra variant which contains improvements for its camera capabilities.
According to the patch notes, the G988NKSU1ATC2 firmware update for the S20 Ultra adds improvements to the device’s camera system, as well as stability improvements, bug fixes, updated security, and added or improved features. The software update comes in at under 160MB so it’s recommended to use Wi-Fi to download the file – unless you don’t mind using data for this.
As for the S20 Ultra’s post-patch camera performance, we’re glad to say that the update has improved its quality in all modes, especially when utilising its 100X Space Zoom camera. Other than that, the camera system’s autofocusing capability has also been tweaked to be more faster and precise. Below are the pre and post-patch performance of the S20 Ultra’s 10X image quality.
Additionally, updates for the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus are also released on the same day. These provide minor tweaks and improvements to both of their hardware and software, as well as security. Do check for these updates manually if you’ve not been prompted yet on your respective S20 model.
