Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ camera blur issue is frustrating users


In the new Galaxy S23 series, only the Galaxy S23 Ultra has received upgrades to the rear camera setup. The Galaxy S23 and S23+ feature the same setup as the Galaxy S22 and S22+, but this time around photos from the main rear camera seem to have a blur issue that is frustrating many users.

It seems like the 50MP rear camera on the Galaxy S23 and S23+ has a problem with keeping the entire scene in focus. Users report that while the center of the scene looks sharp and focused as you would expect, the photos are blurry at the sides and edges. The issue seems to be affecting Galaxy S23 and S23+ units manufactured in Vietnam – we were able to replicate the issue with photos of documents and text but not otherwise, and our units have been manufactured in India.
Here are a couple of some examples collected by the folks over at Notebookcheck:

The country of origin and manufacturing isn’t usually an issue when it comes to camera quality, though, so it could be that this is just an issue that affects some units and not others. In fact, according to some users this was an issue on the Galaxy S22 series as well but was not reported on at the time, and apparently sending in the phone for repair is the only way to get the issue fixed.

We’ve reached out to Samsung for more details on this issue and will update this article when we hear back. For now, we suggest waiting for official info from Samsung before taking any further steps (and to get around the blur issue, try manually focusing by tapping the screen before taking a picture).
