Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra gets better telephoto image quality: Report
Previous reports had made it clear that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will largely retain the same zoom cameras as its predecessor.
New reports suggest that South Korean tech giant Samsung’s next flagship phone, Galaxy S23 Ultra, will take much better telephoto shots than its predecessors.
According to GSM Arena, this new leak was shared by popular tipster Ice Universe. Previous reports had made it clear that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will largely retain the same zoom cameras as its predecessor – a 3x and 10x periscope.
GSM Arena has reported that the tipster believes Samsung has made progress in image quality. Previously, Ice Universe made similar claims about the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s new 200MP wide-angle camera.
Sensor size and readout speed contribute greatly to image quality, but computational photography is where the biggest gains have been made in recent years.
Outside of the new 200MP main camera, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will rely on the same, on paper, ultrawide, 3x and 10x zoom cameras as the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which itself had largely identical hardware to the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
It’s a winning formula, one that gives users multiple zoom levels and covers the wide-angle and ultra-wide angle with autofocus sensors, according to GSM Arena.
Meanwhile, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip is expected to power the flagship. Reports have suggested that Samsung will use Qualcomm chips on all variants of its new lineup, although there is a possibility that some units could be equipped with Samsung Exynos chipsets, according to GSM Arena.
