South Korean brand, Samsung, is getting set to unveil its latest flagship series, the Galaxy S23 series. This flagship series will arrive in the first quarter of next year. As the launch date gets closer, more information about the series continues to hit the web. The Samsung Galaxy S23 series will have at least three models. It will have the Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra was listed on the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China a few days ago.
Gizchina News of the week
According to MIIT’s listing, the front camera of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is only 12MP. This report has been confirmed by Galaxy Club citing internal sources. This is to say that the pixel size of the front camera dropped from 40MP in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12MP in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The front of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra have a 40MP camera. However, Samsung plans to downgrade to 12MP on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. This may be due to cost considerations. There are reports that the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s rear main camera will upgrade to 200MP.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra front camera may have lower pixel but better images
It is also important to note that more pixels does not always mean better images. If the software optimization is good, a low pixel camera sensor could capture better images. In addition, the report also points out that the front-facing cameras of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a slight improvement over the previous generation. However, a reduction in resolution does not mean a reduction in image quality. There are many factors to measure the filming effect, and hardware is only a part of it. The camera’s algorithm and software processing have a greater impact on the image quality. Of course, lower resolution means that details will be lost when zooming or cropping photos.
