The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is said to have a 200-megapixel camera and a faster fingerprint sensor


The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra – the purported successor to the Galaxy S22 Ultra – could come with a 200-megapixel camera, according to a report. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S22 series earlier this year and is expected to introduce the Galaxy S23 lineup sometime next year. Meanwhile, a tipster claims that the Galaxy S23 Ultra could also feature Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanning technology. The company has yet to officially announce any details regarding the successor to its flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra handset.

According to a report by Korea IT News, Samsung is planning to integrate a 200 megapixel camera on one of the Galaxy S23 series smartphones. The Galaxy S23 Ultra may be the only handset in the series to feature the sensor, according to the report, which claims that Samsung’s Mobile Experience (MX) division passed this information on to the company’s key camera partners.

Samsung would have relayed its development and production plans, according to the report, which specifies having commissioned certain firms to develop parts for its 200-megapixel sensor. The report mentions that currently only Samsung Electro-Mechanics and Samsung Electronics produce 200 megapixel cameras. The supply chain is expected to expand when this sensor starts appearing on relatively low-end devices, according to the report.

Notably, Samsung last introduced a camera upgrade with the introduction of the 108-megapixel sensor on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The subsequent Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra were also equipped with a 108-megapixel main camera.

Meanwhile, tipster Alvin (@sondesix) recently tweeted that Samsung will likely use Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanning technology for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This fingerprint sensor would be present on the Vivo X80 Pro and the iQoo 9 Pro. This sensor would have a large scanning area and fast scanning speed which could significantly reduce unlock times and reduce errors when authenticating users.
