Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: Camera update should fix HDR problems

Samsung rolled out a major update for better image quality on the Galaxy S23 cameras in South Korea last month. Later, the new firmware also came to Europe, India and the US. However, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra still has camera issues when it comes to HDR content. According to a report by tipster Ice Universe, Samsung now wants to fix the whole thing with the next firmware update.

Unfortunately, Ice Universe did not reveal when the update will be released. It will probably be ready with the next security update at the beginning of May at the latest. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra camera’s HDR issues cause a halo effect around objects in focus. The picture above shows the halos in all their glory.

OnePlus Nord 3: specifications, launch date and price

Now that the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite has been officially launched, it’s already the turn of the next model in the Nord series – the OnePlus Nord 3. Reliable tipster Yogesh Brar now shared the most important specifications of the OnePlus phone as well as the potential price for the Indian market.

Accordingly, the OnePlus Nord 3 has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,240 x 2,772 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It is powered by a fast MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, which relies on a 5,000 mAh battery with 80w fast charging. On the rear is a 64-megapixel main camera alongside an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and a 2-megapixel macro camera.

These specs are identical to those of the OnePlus Ace 2V unveiled in China earlier this month. Therefore, we can assume that the OnePlus Nord 3 will be a rebranded Ace 2V. The Nord 3 should launch in 6-8 weeks, so late May or early June. It will cost at least INR 30,000 (€330/$367) in the base configuration.


Google Bard learns to speak

Microsoft has already introduced several AI-supported functions for its search engine Bing. Now, Google is trying to keep up with the pace and recently launched its own version of ChatGPT called Bard. It wasn’t a smooth start, but according to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Google is making great progress.

This also includes the company working on a conversational feature like ChatGPT’s. In an interview, Pichai clarified that humans will soon be able to converse with an LLM-powered bot (Large Language Model) like Bard.

Google’s boss sees this as more of an opportunity than a threat. And since the company holds more than 93% of the total search engine market, a talking bard will have a significantly bigger impact than the combination of ChatGPT and Bing. Pichai did not specify a time frame, but given the hype about AI, it is unlikely that Google will take much time.
