The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the best camera phone you can buy right now, thanks to a fantastic combination of hardware and software that enables a huge range of camera-centric capabilities. One of those capabilities was the ability to shoot 8K video at 30fps, and it’s just been revealed that this particular feature has been silently downgraded.

Users on Reddit have noticed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra has suddenly lost the option that enabled high bitrate videos. That toggle was there to bump the video’s bitrate up to 100 Mbit/s, and allow even better quality in the process. Following the July security update, which comes with a bunch more camera-centric updates, it appears users are stuck recording 8K video at 80 Mbit/s.
