Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra rumored to keep the old 10MP 10x periscope module

26 July 2022
There could be different optics and a new sensor, but the module won't be too far off the S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra periscopes, according to an unconfirmed report.

          I think that the periscope camera can be improved. The effective diameter is only 5.55mm, which leads to softness caused by diffraction. The S21 Ultra had 6.24mm, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ has 6.5mm.

          If they can't improve the effective diameter, then they could offer an additional periscope low light camera: A second periscope camera with the same lens, but with for example 4 megapixels instead of 10 and without a Bayer filter (due to the lack of a Bayer filter, the effective resolution is comparable with a Bayer sensor with more than 4 megapixels). The images of the two periscope cameras can be combined.

          This could really improve the low light quality of the periscope photos, though in my opinion the daylight quality is far more important. I rather would like to have a good 720mm daylight camera in a smartphone, but it seems that this is currently only possible with a bigger camera bump or with a retractable lens (I wouldn't mind a retractable lens).

            Anonymous, 27 Jul 2022Unbelievable, how long will they stick with this cr@p, they... moreAll phones go the iPhone way of things now. Years gone are the times of innovation and upgrades.

              This is the last rumor-related comment I'm tired of this for about months, this is where keeping the old 10 mp which means no more keeping at 450mp and beyond.

                We need a periscope of atleast 30x this time. Samsung better innovate.

                      What I want is. Same phone size, N20u S-Pen performance, the S22u S-Pen felt more like a downgrade. I want the GN2 50mp 1.4um Main F1.6, 12mp 1/1.7" 1.8um Ultra wide F2 or better. I want a 64mp true 3x optical and true 12mp 10x

                                      Instead, they should get a super steady video with OIS and improve the tele-zoom.

Digital is just cropped image, optical zoom is any time there are lenses involved to do the zooming. Does Galaxy S22 Ultra have lenses to do the zooming with periscope camera? Yes. Then it has optical zoom. You can call it hybrid optical zoom if you want if they do digital in between, but the fact is, there are moving physical lenses.
