    Galaxy S23 Ultra will “100%” have the same camera design as the S22 Ultra

    More rumors concerning Samsung's design route for the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra are piling up. According to the latest, Samsung's adopting the “if it ain't broke, don't fix it” philosophy for the upcoming flagship and won't invest too much time changing the design of the rear-facing camera array.

    A few days ago, word on the street was that the Galaxy S23 Ultra has roughly the same dimensions as the ongoing Galaxy S22 Ultra, with marginal differences of 0.1~0.2mm. This nugget of information didn't say much about the design of the rear-facing camera system. However, the rumor has evolved, and Twitter leakster @UniverseIce now says the Galaxy S23 Ultra will “100%” have the exact same camera design as the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

    What will the Galaxy S23 Ultra look like?

    If the Galaxy S23 Ultra ends up looking the same, needless to say, we can look at the Galaxy S22 Ultra for a glimpse into the future. In short, Samsung's ongoing Ultra flagship carries four rear-facing cameras, a laser autofocus module that could be mistaken for a fifth camera from a distance, and an LED flash.

    The Galaxy S22 Ultra distinguishes itself from the rest of the 2022 flagship lineup by separating each rear-facing sensor rather than bundling them in a camera hump. The phone's back panel has six independent circular cutouts of varying dimensions to match each sensor and the LED flash.

    In theory, borrowing the same camera arrangement and design from the 2022 model could work in the customer's favor. The Galaxy S22 Ultra doesn't look bad at all. In fact, the 2022 flagship arguably looks more mature than the rest of the S22 series because it doesn't try as hard to highlight the primary camera system.

    More importantly, Samsung's usual lack of consistency in design from one smartphone generation to the next often gave away a sense of indecisiveness rather than innovation. And although Samsung's smartphones don't look bad by any stretch of the imagination, it often feels like the company is shuffling its design language around for marketing reasons more than anything else. But if the Galaxy S23 Ultra won't look very different from the S22 Ultra, the Korean tech giant may be able to spend more time improving the upcoming flagship in other, more practical ways.

    There's no official release date for the Galaxy S23 series yet, but if recent history is any indication, Samsung could unveil the device in January or February next year.
