How to take portraits using Live focus feature in Samsung Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Mar 08. 2018

The Live focus feature allows the camera to capture the subject and the background separately so that you can get an out-of-focus photo with the focus on the subject.

Tips: To use the Live focus feature, it is recommended to position subjects about 1.2 m away from the camera lens. Also, use this feature in a place that has sufficient light.
