More information about Samsung's next Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy S22, has surfaced. With some creative adjustments, the South Korean manufacturer maintains the gorgeous design unveiled earlier this year with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Olympus' 200MP camera sensor was previously believed to be included in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. But it turned out to be nothing more than gossip. According to reports from a few days ago, Samsung will continue to employ a 108MP primary camera sensor, with minor enhancements in terms of zoom. The forthcoming phone's exact camera specs have already been published.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will include a slightly upgraded 108MP primary camera sensor (1/33-inch) with 0.8m pixels and an F1.8 aperture, according to the tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). It seems to be a slightly tweaked version of the ISOCELL HM3 found in the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Sony's 12MP ultrawide camera sensor (1/2.55-inch) with 1.4m pixels and an F2.2 aperture is expected to be used in the forthcoming flagship phone. Two 10MP (1/3.52-inch) Sony sensors will be used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, one with a 3x optical zoom lens and the other with a 10x optical zoom lens.
If this information is right, there will be no significant improvements in camera hardware over the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Software optimizations and processing algorithms may account for the majority of the gains.
Despite being eight months old, the Galaxy S21 Ultra still outperforms newer flagship phones from competitor manufacturers in the photography field. However, with competitor manufacturers choosing stronger hardware, it will be tough for Samsung to maintain its advantage.
