The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is expected to be unveiled at the company’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1. While the South Korean tech giant has not revealed any details other than teasers for the phones, expected design and specs for the Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra have leaked ahead of launch. Now, a tipster has detailed all the changes in the camera department of the top-of-the-line Galaxy S23 Ultra. For the front camera, the handset is reportedly switching to a 12-megapixel 3LU sensor from a 40-megapixel GH1 sensor present on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
According to tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), the Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with numerous changes to its predecessor’s camera sensors. In their tweetthe tipster posted screengrabs detailing 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 over the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 12-megapixel Sony IMX563 sensor. The biggest upgrade comes to the main camera. A previous report reveals that the main camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be a 200-megapixel HP2 sensor. Its predecessor had a 108-megapixel HM3 sensor as the main camera.
Meanwhile, the single camera spec is expected to remain the same: the Sony IMX754 sensor for the 3x and 10x telephoto camera has been carried over from the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Leaks about the Galaxy S23’s camera module have recently flooded the internet. A report this week claimed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra can shoot portrait videos in 4K quality at 30 frames per second (fps). The handset will also reportedly come with a “night vision” camera. Samsung’s flagship is expected to feature a quad rear camera, led by a 200-megapixel primary 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 will reportedly be powered by a modified version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, with a peak clock speed of up to 3.36 GHz.
