The camera systems of Samsung’s latest foldable phone duo: the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 – aren’t exactly the best of the company’s current lineup. No, that prize goes to the Galaxy S22 flagship series.
Nevertheless, today there is some good news for owners of Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. The latest update currently rolling out to the two Samsung Foldables includes a range of new camera features and improvements taken straight from the S22 series playbook. †via TizenHelp†
Support for the telephoto camera in Pro mode
Unlike their S22 series cousins, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 did not have the ability to shoot with the 12MP telephoto camera in Pro mode until now. Pro mode is a way for users to access more camera settings and therefore have more control over how the shots are shot. With the new update, you can now use available rear cameras while shooting in Pro mode.
Night photography in portrait mode
The Night Photography mode has the ability to provide higher levels of detail when shooting in low light. Both the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 already have Night photography, but not when shooting in Portrait mode.
With the latest update, owners of Samsung’s latest folding cameras can now shoot with Portrait mode in much darker conditions than before, opening up a whole new avenue of possibilities.
Enhanced video for apps
After installing the new update, video calls with the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 should be clearer, both for the first and third-party applications. That includes apps like Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Microsoft Teams, Google Meets, and Duo, and more. people present.
The firmware version for the Fold 3 is called F926BXXU1CVEB and the one for the Flip 3 is F711BXXU2CVEB. Currently, the only countries to receive it are Italy and Germany, but the update should soon arrive in other countries around the world.
