The Samsung Galaxy S23 series has been out for just a couple of months. But that is not stopping the Galaxy S24 leaks from creating a buzz. To be exact, in the past few days, we have seen tons of rumors regarding the next flagship series of Samsung. And this time, we get more details about the camera system of the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
Previous leaks around the camera system of the Galaxy S24 series hinted that Samsung would make a switch in the camera department. That speculated that the phones would come with a variable zoom telephoto and variable aperture primary sensor. However, the latest rumor suggests that most of the improvements will be in the software department.
Galaxy S24 To Have the Same Camera Hardware But With Massive Software Improvements
So, the news regarding the Galaxy S24 Ultra coming with a massively improved camera system can take you by surprise. After all, the Galaxy S23 Ultra already came with a significant camera upgrade over the S22 Ultra. And if you have been keeping tabs on past Samsung trends, it waits for a couple of generations before making a complete shift.
But could things change with the Galaxy S24 Ultra this year? Yogesh Brar, who is a renowned tipster, claims that the Ultra phone of the Galaxy S24 series will see a massive camera improvement. But most of the improvements will be made through a software upgrade.
The Galaxy S24 series / S24 Ultra in particular will get massive camera improvement. This will primarily be achieved through improved software.
Test builds on S23 Ultra are promising so far.

The tipster added that the test builds on the Galaxy S23 Ultra are already looking good. That means Samsung might stick with the ISOCELL HP2 sensor found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. However, as per the tip, Samsung will make software improvements to make the S24 Ultra take even better pictures than its predecessor.
What About New Sensors?
If Samsung does only focus on the software department, it means we will not see a 1-inch sensor with the Galaxy S24 series. But it does not mean Samsung will not work on the telephoto sensor, which the previous rumor has shed light on. We could still see Samsung making a shift to a variable optical zoom sensor.

But for the base Galaxy S24 and the Plus models, Samsung might stick with the same GN3 sensor. At least, that is what a tweet from Revengus, another renowned tipster, is hinting at. However, Samsung will make the rest of the phones of the series enjoy the same software upgrade.
This means that S24 cameras use the same hardware, GN3 https://t.co/xja7lcG235

Yes, it would be disappointing to find Samsung using the same sensor on the Galaxy S24 series, especially after the last leak regarding the camera system. But as far as I can tell, the camera performance of the phones will not disappoint. After all, Samsung needs to compete with the upcoming Pixel 8 and iPhone 15 lineups. Those are rumored to come with great camera systems too.
Moreover, Xiaomi 13 Ultra shook the world with its amazing camera sensor and performance. That is another competitor that the Samsung Galaxy S24 series need to beat. So, just because the phones might use last-gen sensors, it does not mean that the S24 lineup will offer sub-par performance.
Now, if you were looking forward to seeing a 1-inch sensor on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, you should give your hopes up. After all, you can not forget that these are all very early-stage leaks. Samsung can change things up before releasing the phones. And if Samsung does make any changes, I am sure the info will be out in the wild pretty soon. So, keep your eyes peeled for future updates from us to get updated.
