No sooner had the noise about imposing an artificial moon when shooting on Samsung’s flagship smartphones subsided, as the Galaxy S23 was again at the epicenter of the scandal. This time, the brand’s top camera phone managed to finish painting the teeth of a seven-month-old baby.
A user of the brand new Galaxy S23 Ultra decided to try out the Remaster feature in the Samsung Gallery app, expecting effects like auto-brightness and noise reduction in Google Photos. Instead, he got this result:
Not only did the algorithms erase the snot, but they also added an even row of teeth instead of a tongue. The surprised user tested the Remaster function on other shots, but the result was the same. This is not just a one-time failure, but a specific omission in Samsung’s algorithms.
Interestingly, The Verge editor failed to reproduce this behavior on a regular Galaxy S22.
Samsung itself has not yet officially commented on the situation.
