On the 29th of August 2022, Samsung announced that they are about to release a new software update purposely to improve the cameras of the S22 series even more. According to Samsung, they will make the telephoto lens even more useful by introducing Hyperlapse video. With the new Hyperlapse mode, you can use your phone’s camera to take multiple videos at the same time when moving your phone around. The QR Code scanner will also be improved to enable easier scanning with your smartphone’s camera.

The Hyperlapse functionality which initially came with the S22 series could only make use of the wide angle camera and the ultrawide camera. But the upcoming feature is going to make use of the 3x Hyperlapse function. There is also a work in progress for Astro Hyperlapse functionality that will enhance artistic sky photos at night.

There is this annoying bug in the QR Code that wouldn’t allow you to just close the message that shows after scanning. You have to totally close the App or you are forces to visit the URL address that pops up. The upcoming camera update will also fix this issue. Talking of QR Code, the scanner will also see some enlargement to allow more scanning area. You can also tap to scan in case the app does not do that automatically.
