Samsung Galaxy S23 With One UI 5.1 Allows Users Pick an Object From a Photo In Gallery App
The Galaxy S23 Ultra in particular, from Samsung’s recently released Galaxy S23 series, seems to have many secret tricks up its sleeve. Some intriguing software capabilities, such as the phone’s capacity to extract things from images, are among the few hardware enhancements announced for the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus versions this year. The capability is pretty comparable to what iOS 16 on an iPhone makes available. As far as we can determine, the feature is currently only visible on the most recent Galaxy S23 handsets.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra appears to be able to take objects out of photos, precisely like we’ve seen with iOS 16-equipped iPhone and iPad devices, as several Twitter users have noted. This worked flawlessly when we tested it on our Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Ultra review units.

When utilizing the built-in Gallery app, the capability is accessible on Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones. An object, person, or pet in an image only needs to be long-pressed before it is instantly cut out as a cutout and a pop-up bubble with Copy, Share and Save as image options appear. The user can then decide whether to share the cutout (a.png file) with another program or keep it for later use. Given that the video is paused, the functionality also functions while it is being played back.
Even if the feature is intriguing and useful, Samsung’s reluctance to reveal it may be due to Apple delivering the feature first. The firm that first came up with the concept or filed a patent for the software functionality is still unknown.
Samsung has once again saved the biggest advancements for its ‘Ultra’ model with the S23 series, much like it did with the Galaxy S22 series from the previous year.
As we noted in our first impressions, the hardware in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus models is essentially the same as that in S22 models, with the exception of a slightly different cosmetic appearance and the processor, which has been upgraded to the specialized Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy is how Samsung has branded it.
Also available for the Galaxy S23 Plus is quicker wired charging at 45W. According to our initial observations, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has a new processor, a brand-new 200-megapixel primary camera with improved OIS, some significant design improvements, and a new “Astro Hyperlapse” mode for photographing star trails.
