More details about Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200MP camera leak


Last updated: September 12th, 2022 at 10:07 UTC+02:00

It has been reported multiple times that Samsung will upgrade to a 200MP camera sensor for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. However, the camera sensor’s features weren’t revealed. Now, reliable tipster Ice Universe has revealed some more details about the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera.

According to the tipster, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 200MP ISOCELL camera sensor with a 1/1.3-inch sensor size. It reportedly features 0.6µm pixels and has an F1.7 aperture. If you can remember, the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 108MP primary camera has 0.8µm pixels and an F1.8 aperture. This means that the 200MP camera sensor has smaller pixels, but the aperture is wider (that takes more light in).

We are not sure if the 200MP camera sensor on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is an upgrade or a downgrade compared to its predecessor. However, it could improve the zoom performance at non-native zoom levels. Smaller pixels usually result in higher noise, especially in videos (since pixel binning isn’t performed during videos). It seems that Samsung is running after numbers rather than actual quality.

However, we will reserve our judgment until after we get to review the Galaxy S23 Ultra sometime early next year. The smartphone will reportedly feature a design that’s extremely similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra. It will feature a faster processor (Snapdragon 8 Gen 2), a bigger ultrasonic fingerprint reader, and the Android 13-based One UI 5 software.
