Fake Galaxy S23 Ultra Moon Photo? This is Samsung’s Explanation


Samsung is being hit by an unpleasant issue, because it is alleged that the photo of the moon from the Galaxy S23 Ultra camera is fake. Responding to this accusation, Samsung also explained how the 100x Space Zoom feature on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can photograph the moon.

This problem started with a Reddit user named “ibreakphotos” who doubted the authenticity of the moon photos from the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra camera.

According to him, the photos of the moon that look almost perfect are not entirely fake, but the photos are also not entirely authentic. To prove his accusations, he conducted several stages of testing.


The first thing he did was download a high-resolution photo of the moon from the Internet, then reduced the resolution to 170×170 pixels. After that, he added a Gaussian blur (software photo processor to give the image a blur effect) to remove all the details in the moon image.

Then he displayed the moon’s image on his computer monitor screen with mode full screen, thus making the moon image blurry and pixelated, not looking like the moon. Then he took a picture of the moon that was on the monitor earlier, and showed that the results were much better and clearer, with details like photos of the moon produced by other Space Zoom features.

Reported The telephone from GSMArenathe technology giant from South Korea immediately responded to these accusations, by providing an explanation of the camera process on the Galaxy S23 Ultra when capturing images of the moon.
