Behind the Shot:
How the Galaxy S21 Series 5G’s AI Improves Photos

Equipped with groundbreaking hardware to address today’s pain points, the Galaxy S21 Series 5G also sports intelligent software to improve picture quality.

Low light and camera noise can lead to blurry, grainy photos, causing missed opportunities when capturing that memorable moment. Thanks to the Galaxy S21 Series 5G’s Artificial Intelligence (AI,) the camera takes stunning images in low light conditions with just the click of the shutter.

Whether trying to snap a photo of a beautiful cityscape at night or a group selfie in a low-lit restaurant, the camera AI on the Galaxy S21 Series 5G begins a three-phase process from the moment the shutter is clicked.

The camera first takes multiple pictures of the scene at different exposure levels. The camera then begins Multi-frame Processing, which combines the images into one and enhances the brightness of the picture. After this, the AI image signal processor begins post-processing the image, reducing noise and fine-tuning the details. The results are crystal clear images with significantly reduced noise and blur.

The keys to achieving that clarity and detail are in the multi-frame layering and AI restoration. When the multi-frame processing begins, the Galaxy S21 Series 5G intelligently selects the sharpest frame from all the images captured to use as a reference image.

After selecting the reference frame, the AI aligns and registers the rest of the images before delivering the finalized photo. When finalized, the image has significantly reduced noise and a superior tone balance between the main subject and its background.

The same multi-frame process allows the Galaxy S21 Series 5G to support clear, high-resolution images even under poor conditions, such as when zooming in on a neon sign to create an image with a high dynamic range.

While zooming in on distant subjects, the Galaxy S21 Series 5G can capture up to 20 frames at different exposure values (EV), depending on the conditions. Capturing at different exposure values allows the camera to produce a sharper final image with a high dynamic range with true-to-life exposure of both shadows and highlights. So, when zooming in on that neon sign, users will be able to make out every letter.

The AI determines whether it needs to use every frame captured or just a subset during multi-frame processing. With more data from multiple frames, the Galaxy S21 Series 5G’s camera AI can deliver bright, tack-sharp images even in low light or when zoomed in from extremely far away—whether it’s a photo of a neon sign or a favorite singer at a concert.
