Samsung Relaunches Its AI Photo Editing App for the Galaxy S23 Line

Samsung Galaxy Enhance-X

Samsung’s artificial intelligence (AI) powered photo editing app Galaxy Enhance-X is finally back and officially available for the Galaxy S23 series following its initial release and disappearance last year.

In July, Samsung quietly released Galaxy Enhance-X which uses AI to repair blurry pictures, remove reflections, brighten dark images, fix photos taken from digital displays, and upscale images to higher resolutions.

The AI photo editing app was positioned as an alternative to the built-in image editor in Samsung’s Gallery app.

However, according to Neowin, Galaxy Enhance-X was removed and unlisted from the Galaxy Store just a few months later — after social media users reported that the installed app was crashing on their devices.

According to online users, Samsung never commented on the AI photo-editing app’s removal from the Galaxy Store.

Now, ten months on from its first unveiling, the new Galaxy Enhance-X app is back and available for the Galaxy S23 series. It is available to download in the Galaxy store. The Galaxy Enhance-X app has a file size of around 85MB, and its initial version is 1.0.55 with a Beta tag.

Samsung has confirmed that the app will eventually be available on older phones, including the Galaxy S22 devices and some Galaxy A phones too.

On the Galaxy store, Samsung describes the Galaxy Enhance-X app as a “one-stop AI solution for all media enhancements. With a single tap, your image is analyzed for imperfections, enhanced, and refined to a higher quality.”

The app’s interface remains the same as when it first launched in July, and the editing tools appear to be the same too.

However, in the company’s announcement, a Samsung camera team member stated that the new Galaxy Enhance-X app uses a more powerful AI engine to improve images.

The new app also has a single-click feature called Magic Enhance. The tool uses “deep learning and AI algorithms” to automatically detect and fix key issues in a user’s photos like noise, blur, and loss of detail.

Last month, PetaPixel reported on Samsung’s photo “Remaster” feature on the Gallery app which horrifyingly gave teeth to an infant. A Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra owner described how the tool took some extreme liberties with their photos, namely adding teeth into the mouth of their seven-month-old daughter.
