Some owners of the Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ are currently complaining about a soft area in their photos. Due to its shape, it is also known as “banana blur” and occurs in the affected models in the 50 megapixel main camera. Some example photos from Samsung Community member s9tralala illustrate the problem.

However, it seems that Samsung has already identified the problem – there is a post on Samsung Poland’s community forum that promises a fix is in the works. According to the post, a software fix is on the way, which suggests there are no hardware bugs to tackle. However, there are no details on when to expect this fix to arrive. In the meantime, the post offers some workarounds:

  • Take the photo from a distance of at least 30 cm
  • Try holding the phone vertically

Here is the key paragraph from the post describing the problem (machine-translated from Polish):

“When testing the camera capabilities of the S23 or S23+, you may have noticed that the area around the subject looks a little blurry when shooting close-up. This is because the wide main camera on the S23 and S23+ has a bright aperture, which helps when shooting in the dark But it also means that more selective focus can make the background of your photos appear a little blurry.”

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is not affected by the banana blur issue. According to the post, that’s because of the Ultra’s Focus Booster feature.
