Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra camera specs announced, may feature same telephoto sensor as Galaxy S22 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is set to be unveiled at the company’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1. While the South Korean tech giant didn’t release any details beyond teasers for the phones, the design and expected specs for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra leaked ahead of launch. Now, a tipster has detailed all the changes to the high-end Galaxy S23 Ultra in the camera department. For its front camera, the handset is said to be upgrading to a 12-megapixel 3LU sensor from a 40-megapixel GH1 sensor found on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
According to tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), the Galaxy S23 Ultra will arrive with a host of changes to its camera sensors compared to its predecessor. In their Tweetertipster has posted screenshots listing the detailed hardware and software specs of the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
In addition to the front camera, the upcoming handset will feature a 12-megapixel Sony IMX564 sensor for its ultra-wide sensor – an upgrade from the 12-megapixel Sony IMX563 sensor in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The biggest upgrade is to the main camera. A previous report reveals that the primary camera of the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be a 200-megapixel HP2 sensor. Its predecessor featured a 108-megapixel HM3 sensor for its main camera.
Meanwhile, camera specifications should remain the same: the Sony IMX754 sensor for 3x and 10x telephoto lenses has been carried over from the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Leaks regarding the Galaxy S23’s camera module have flooded the internet recently. A report released this week claimed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra can record portrait videos in 4K quality at 30 frames per second (fps). The handset would also come with a “night vision” camera. Samsung’s flagship handset is expected to sport a quad rear camera setup led by a 200-megapixel main sensor with an f/1.7 lens and OIS (optical image stabilization) support. These details are also confirmed in the latest leak.
Moreover, the phone is said to be powered by a customized version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, offering a peak clock speed of up to 3.36 GHz.
