200MP photo captured with Galaxy S23 Ultra could blow your mind


Last updated: January 19th, 2023 at 12:17 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a new ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor, and for the first time, the S-series flagship will jump to a resolution of 200 megapixels. Samsung appears to have engaged in the megapixel battle once again, but it’s not just for the sake of numbers. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will supposedly be able to capture amazing photos, and an alleged camera sample is lending a lot of weight to that theory.

The sample photo you see below was supposedly captured using the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s primary 200MP camera. It might not look like it, but this isn’t a telephoto image shot at 5x or 10x zoom. Instead, the source says this is a regular 200MP photo, which was later zoomed in at 12x and cropped using a photo editor. The method used is unclear, and the photo editing app is unmentioned, but that’s the gist of it. (via @UniverseIce)

Galaxy S23 Ultra camera captures an incredible level of detail

This alleged sample photo from the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s primary 200MP camera shows the incredible level of detail the upcoming flagship can capture. The image is crisp, without oversampling, noise, or other visual artifacts you’d usually get from zooming in on a photo captured with a different sensor. It’s almost as if it’s not even a crop.

The ISOCELL HP2 is a 1/1.3-inch sensor with 0.6-micron pixels. It promises faster and better autofocus in low-light conditions thanks to Super QPD (Quad Phase Detection). Samsung’s leaked promotional material already teased the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s low-light photography, and it’s obvious that this new sensor will be one of the upcoming flagship’s main selling points.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S23 Ultra at Unpacked on February 1. The company is already accepting reservations for the device (as well as the Galaxy Book 3), and early adopters can benefit from $50 in Samsung Credit — or $100 if they reserve both a Galaxy S23 phone and a Galaxy Book 3 laptop.
