As we know, the telephoto (zoom) camera is the selling point of Samsung’s “Ultra” models. The upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra features a telephoto camera that provides 10x optical zoom. Unfortunately, the company won’t have a significant upgrade to this sensor.
According to some reports, the company is still using the 10MP, 10x optical zoom telephoto camera for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The company feels that if something isn’t broken, there’s no need to fix it.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra telephoto camera will be exactly the same as the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The other possibility is Samsung will improve with a better optic and related advancements, but the resolution and maximum optical zoom will remain at 10 megapixels and 10x, respectively.
Since Samsung unveiled the zoom sensor, there’s no information about the specific sensor. The second zoom sensor will remain at a 10-megapixel resolution and 3x optical zoom as well.
No information is available about the other Galaxy S23 Ultra camera sensors at this point in time. There have been some rumours that its primary sensor will tout a massive 200-megapixel resolution. Samsung is far from giving up these ultra-high resolution sensors, so that remains within the realm of possibility.
