Just a few days ago, we heard about a new update for the Galaxy S20 series that brought improvements to camera performance. The update was only available to some international Exynos-powered S20 models at the time, but now it's begun arriving in the US, too.
The new update is available for the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra, carrying the version number G981U1UEU1ATCH, G986USQU1ATCH, and G988USQU1ATCH, respectively. SamMobile reports that the unlocked versions of the S20 phones are getting the new update, and a user on Samsung's community forums has confirmed that their S20 Ultra has been updated.
Meanwhile, Verizon appears to be the first US carrier to begin pushing the update. Both its Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra are being updated, and Verizon says that the update "provides system enhancements and improves camera performance" of the devices.
The major focus of this update is to address the slow autofocus issues that some Galaxy S20 owners have been experiencing, particularly on the S20 Ultra. Considering that many folks rely on their smartphone as their only camera, it's good to see Samsung responding to this slow autofocus issue fairly quickly, especially when it comes to getting an update out to the US models so soon after the international variants.
If you've got a Galaxy S20 series device, let us know when you get this new update!
