Some users have recently reported multiple issues with their Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S23 trio at its Unpacked 2023 event on February 1. The lineup includes the feature-laden Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphones.
The Galaxy S23 sports a 6.5-inch display, while the Galaxy S23 Ultra features a mammoth 6.8-inch display with high refresh rates. Users around the world are now reporting camera module issues on these devices. The faulty main lens on the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ reportedly captures blurry images.
Some users have detected banana or ring-shaped blurs in photos captured using their Galaxy S23 series phones. Also, a significant portion of the image appears blurry and out of focus. The issue was originally reported in German tech forums. Now, users are taking to XDA forums, Samsung community boards and Reddit to share their frustration.

Apparently, made-in-Vietnam units are most affected. However, some Indian and South Korean-made units have the issue as well. Samsung hasn’t acknowledged the issue at the time of writing. Nonetheless, if this turns out to be a hardware defect, affected users might have to replace the camera module on their phones.
Alternatively, Samsung might fix the issue with a significant software update in the coming days. Notably, the Korean smartphone giant is reportedly working on a huge camera update for the Galaxy S23 line.
