Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 get the Galaxy S22’s camera features with new updates

Some phone makers can be stingy with what new features they backport to older devices. Samsung is generally good about this, launching devices with features that eventually trickle down to the rest of the lineup. Making good on its promise, the Korean OEM is now bringing a handful of camera features from the Galaxy S22 series to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

First up, the “Auto framing” feature in video recording mode. During supported video mode & video calling apps, both Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 users will get auto picture adjustment. The low light portrait mode algorithm has also been enhanced on the Fold 3. Last but not least, owners of the Fold 3 can finally utilize the telephoto lens in Pro mode.

The new builds are now rolling out across the globe for the international variants of the foldable duo.
