The Galaxy S23 Ultra could offer a video portrait mode in 4K. While the Galaxy S22 (Ultra) already offered a function similar to that of the iPhone 13 and 14, Samsung should improve it by increasing the resolution from 1080p to 4K. The Galaxy S23 Ultra could thus bring itself up to the level of Apple’s flagships and considerably improve the video quality.
Samsung may improve its video portrait mode on the Galaxy S23 Ultra It’s unclear if the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will get this upgrade
According to the famous leaker IceUniverse, reputed to be quite reliable, Samsung will improve its video portrait mode function by increasing the resolution from Full HD to 4K 30 fps. The Galaxy S23 Ultra would thus be at the level of Apple’s iPhone 14.
Galaxy S23 Ultra: A better bokeh effect for video portrait mode
The source notes that the South Korean firm intends to improve the separation between the foreground and the background or the level of blur during recording. Arguably, these changes could well be applied not only to the bokeh effect but also to other effects such as Great Circle and Color Point.
Unfortunately, it has not been clarified whether the Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus will receive the same upgrade since the S23 Ultra will be the only model to feature the new 200MP main sensor. But given that last year’s Galaxy S22 had similar specs to the Galaxy S22 Ultra with a larger main sensor, it’s likely that the entire Galaxy S23 lineup will eventually benefit from the new features.
