We are at least five months away from the launch of the Galaxy S24, but most details about Samsung's upcoming high-end phones have leaked already. All three phones in the lineup—Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra—are getting some impressive upgrades, and despite featuring a 200MP primary camera like its predecessor, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will use a newer sensor.
Galaxy S24 Ultra to use 200MP ISOCELL HP2SX camera sensor
While it is already known that Samsung will stick to a 200MP sensor for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, the company was expected to use the same sensor it used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. But that's not the case. According to reliable tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S24 Ultra features the 200MP ISOCELL HP2SX camera sensor, a more optimized version of the ISOCELL HP2 used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It has an optical format of 1/1.3-inch and an individual pixel size of 0.7µm. It will likely feature Super Quad Phase Detection autofocus, 8K 30fps video recording, and 16-in-1 (12MP) and 4-in-1 (50MP) pixel binning modes.
It has already been revealed that the Galaxy S24 Ultra uses an upgraded telephoto camera with a 50MP sensor (1/2.52-inch) and 0.7µm pixels. It will be paired with a 3x optical zoom lens and OIS, resulting in a massive jump in performance when it comes to details. It will reportedly offer optical quality 5x zoom, thanks to a combination of a bigger sensor and in-sensor cropping. The phone will reportedly use the same 12MP selfie camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 10MP telephoto camera (10x zoom) used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Galaxy S24 Ultra specifications
Other features of the Galaxy S24 Ultra include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, 12GB/16GB RAM, 256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB storage, an in-display fingerprint reader, IP68 rating, stereo speakers, a titanium frame, and a 5,000mAh battery with 45W fast charging. It will likely feature 15W fast wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. The phone will run Android 14 out of the box.
