Aside from its opulent folding phones, Samsung produces some of the greatest Android phones money can now buy, and its Galaxy S22 models from this year are possibly the most attractive of them all. The Galaxy S23 series, which includes the S23 Ultra, S23 Plus, and regular S23 models, is now something we’re anticipating. The most recent hardware rumor is currently aiming to raise our expectations for the 200MP primary camera on the flagship Galaxy S23 Ultra.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra’s behemoth of a sensor, according to leaker Ice universe on Twitter, will not only be absurdly high-res but will also have better performance in some key areas, bringing about the “biggest improvement” in Samsung flagships in years. We have already heard a lot about the likelihood that a 200MP sensor will serve as the primary lens on the device. In particular, the advancements might lead to greater low-light photography and videography outcomes.
The latest Expert RAW update improved the astrophotography capabilities of the current-generation Galaxy S22 series, and this rumor says that the 200MP low-light photos of the Galaxy S23 Ultra should be something to look forward to. It is unclear, though, if the sensor’s advancements would take the shape of bigger individual pixels or some other type of hardware improvement.
However, we are yet unsure of how well this will actually function and whether we can expect a smartphone’s camera to produce 200MP full-resolution photographs that are acceptable in low light. The tiny individual pixels in high-resolution smartphone sensors would struggle to collect enough information to recreate colors naturally, therefore pixel binning is likely here to stay for low-light performance.
Besides the 200MP primary, we can expect the Galaxy S23 Ultra to have a 12MP ultrawide and dual 10MP telephoto cameras. Under the hood, Samsung is likely to toss in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC along with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of onboard storage.
