Samsung may have expanded its Galaxy S23 Ultra camera supply chain


Last updated: November 15th, 2022 at 14:48 UTC+01:00

All rumors indicate that the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature four rear-facing cameras, including a 200MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and two 10MP telephoto cameras — one with 3x optical zoom and the other boasting 10x capabilities thanks to folded-lens technology. According to a new report, China’s Sunny Optical will supply two of four Galaxy S23 Ultra cameras.

Sunny Optical has reportedly joined Samsung’s supply chain for Galaxy S23 Ultra cameras. The company will provide 12MP ultra-wide and 10MP folded zoom (10x) shooters for Samsung’s upcoming flagship. However, it won’t be the only company responsible for supplying these types of sensors. (via The Elec).

To an unspecified percentage, Samsung Electronics will also acquire the 10MP folded zoom telephoto camera and the 12MP ultra-wide shooter destined for the Galaxy S23 Ultra from Korea’s Namuga and Samsung Electro-Mechanics.

Meanwhile, reports say that the 200MP primary sensor will be supplied by Electro-Mechanics, which is unsurprising, given that the sensor will bear the ISOCELL branding. Finally, Samsung will obtain the 10MP telephoto shooter with 3x zoom capabilities from both Partron and Mcnex.

Galaxy flagship camera experience may see its biggest upgrade in recent years

Leaving the matters of supply chain and megapixels aside, prospective Galaxy S23 Ultra buyers will mostly be interested in whether or not the 2023 flagship delivers a superior mobile photography experience. And according to recent rumors, it will. In fact, some say the Galaxy S23 Ultra will offer the biggest upgrade in recent years compared to previous Ultra models.

Specifically, the Galaxy S23 Ultra may set new standards for low-light photography and image clarity at high zoom levels. It could be the best-in-class once it hits the market. As to when that might happen, recent rumors indicate that Samsung may host its next major Unpacked event in early February. As usual, we’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
