Samsung seems to have acknowledged the issue now – a post on the Samsung Polish community forum promises a fix is in the works. The post states that this will be resolved with a software fix, which suggests there is no hardware defect.
However, there are no details on when we expect this fix to arrive. In the meantime, the post offers some temporary fixes:
Here is an important paragraph in the post describing the problem (machine translated from Polish):
When testing camera features of S50 or S+, you may have noticed that when shooting close-ups, the area around the subject looks a bit blurry. This is because of the rear position on S23 and S The wide-angle camera + has a bright aperture, which helps to take pictures in the dark. However, this also means that the more pronounced selective focus can make the background of the photo look a bit blurry.
Samsung Galaxy S The Ultra is not affected by the banana blur issue (due to its focus enhancement feature, the post claims).
