The year hasn’t ended and Samsung is yet to launch one more Galaxy S21 smartphone in the form of S21 FE. However, this can prevent the Galaxy S22 series to start stealing the headlines across the web. It’s not a surprise, after all, Samsung has brought its launch window to the beginning of the year with the Galaxy S21 series release. Therefore, we’re expecting the Galaxy S22 to appear in January 2022, and seeing the first leaks popping out isn’t a surprise in this slippery industry of leaks. Today, the tipster Ice Universe, which is very reliable when it comes to Samsung smartphones has brought some neat details about the Galaxy S22 Ultra camera.
As usual, the Galaxy S22 Ultra variant will be the holy grail for Samsung flagship enthusiasts. This particular device stands as the top offering and also is becoming a replacement for the Galaxy Note series. The Ultra packs a huge battery, huge display and also is the most impressive of the trio when it comes to the camera setup.
Galaxy S22 Ultra will not come with a 200 MP camera
So far, there are conflicting rumors about the camera setup on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. So far, some say that the phone will reuse the Galaxy S21 Ultra setup, which isn’t bad, but surely isn’t exciting for those who expect upgrades to come every year. Some rumors say that the new handset will come with Samsung’s new 200 MP cameras. Those who are excited about the 200 MP camera, will be disappointed as Ice Universe believes that the first option is more plausible. The new Galaxy S22 Ultra may come with similar camera specs, but improved telephoto cameras.
According to him, the S22 Ultra will come with two zoom lenses with a variable focal length. The first starts at 3x, the second at 10x. These are the same magnification numbers as the current Ultra. However, the new lenses should be able to zoom in further. Furthermore, there will be a small upgrade to the sensors in the two telephoto cameras. The new model will use two 12 MP sensors with 1.22 µm pixels and both cameras will feature Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
Besides new tweaks, the main camera will remain the same. It will feature a 108 MP camera with 0.8 µm pixels. Unfortunately, it is not clear if this will be the same HM3 sensor used in the current Ultra or a new generation. It will pack improved OIS. The improved ultrawide camera will stick with a 12 MP sensor, and will also gain OIS. Selfie and videos will still be ensured by a 40 MP camera, but it will not be an under-display king of camera.
