The Cameras of Samsung Foldables Are Getting Improvement Updates

Samsung this week is rolling out a brand new firmware update for its foldable devices. The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 smartphones in South Korea are listed this time, and it is expected to hit the global scenes soon. Although the update focuses majorly on a series of new cool camera features, there are a number of patches and bug fixes that come together.

Talking about the changelog, in particular, the new firmware mentions an improved overall camera quality but sadly avoids getting into detail. However, it is reported that the patch adds a feature called scene recognition specifically for the pets in Portrait mode. 

The feature will make your device capable of applying the so-called faux bokeh effect whenever you intend to shoot your cat, dog, or any using the Portrait mode. Besides that, the Z Filp3 will now bag the ability to adjust the primary cover screen's brightness. Also, several software bugs are now fixed, ensuring a great user experience.

The Scenes With Android 12 Based RealMe UI 3.0 Gets Clear

The official take on RealmeUI 3.0 is finally here. The company promises users a brand new, faster, secure, and more efficient OS that is pretty sure to improve user experience.

As per sources, the new RealmeUI 3.0 features a more vivid design that strictly aims to keep the scene minimal. As a result, everything with the new OS looks great, from the icons getting 3D to touch together with added shadow outlining and shadows.

Apart from the icons, one of the other vital improvements is the Always-on display feature. With RealMe UI 3.0, you can now seamlessly set any photo that the OS will convert to a white on the black outline, something like the Canvas mode in Oxygen OS. The RealmeUI 3.0 also bags an improved AI smooth engine, which significantly decreases the memory usage by 20% to 30%, alongside improving the rendering by 10-13%. The other best thing that Realme promises is a 12% battery improvement from Realme UI 3.0

As we've discussed in the previous weeks, the first device to get the RealmeUI 3.0 beta is Realme's GT, which is scheduled to get the firmware in October.
