In any case, the critic came to the conclusion that Samsung extracts details from the image that are no longer there, and thus does more than computational photography – the accusation of falsification is in the air. Whether or not you can call it fake is definitely a matter of interpretation. Anyway, Samsung’s algorithms recognize the moon in certain situations and add details that the camera alone can’t record — in China, this topic has long been discussed as “AI Moon Gate”, like some Twitter users. Reminder.

We don’t know, but a brief search for other potentially fake candidates brought Vivo and Xiaomi back into focus. For example, @sondesix recently provided evidence on Twitter that the Vivo X80 Pro in “Super Moon Mode” simply inserts a larger, more detailed image of the moon into the image. After all, you have to explicitly activate this moon mode here.
