  5. Improved video stabilization while recording FHD 60fps videos through the rear camera when the Auto FPS setting is off.
  6. Less banding noise in the sky in mid-low ambient light when capturing 50MP or 200MP photos. Improvements in overall sharpness in 50MP and 200MP modes and intermittent blurring issues through OIS stabilization.
  7. A fix for the image quality issue when the Night mode is off in low-lighting conditions via selecting Shooting Speed ​​— High Resolution — Speed ​​Priority in the Camera Assistant app.
  8. A fix for the issue with face recognition not working after ending a video call using a third-party app.
  9. Stability improvement for camera movements when the subject in the frame is moving.
