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.

    oio, 27 Jul 2022why couldn't they just bump the ultra wide sensor to l... moreJn1 cant do 8K.
    Those 48MP exmor are larger than current 12 they use.
    Samsung does not want to use extra space, huge is taken by pen already.
    Also, they want to avoid increasing the value of BoM, that has risk of some components getting more expensive like ddr5x ram , next SoC ...

    Larger sensor for periscope would made them shorten to 5x range.

      why couldn't they just bump the ultra wide sensor to like 30+ mp for 8k video

      i know 8k sounds kinda useless but even some flagship killers have 8k. at 30 fps

      so just wondering if Samsung could just upgrade the periscope sensors, ultrawide and the sensor size in main cam it would be an all rounder

        Give snapdragon all over the world with 2Gbps Plus modem and that will be exciting.

          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.

            Definition is variable FL.

            Digital zoom is called digital, not optical since it does not need any work from lens system.
            It is 100% software ( enlarge , cut, upscale back)

            Samsung saying S22 Ultra has zoom camera is as wrong as reviewers say s22 ultra has better screen than any other flagship when evidences say otherwise.

            False marketing.

                    If Fold 3 with Full HD screen has ultra poor camera, imagine behind a QHD screen.

                      Yes , the s22 ultras zoom lens isn't a real zoom lens , but 99% of people call it zoom lens , so join that 99% .

                      People make mistakes, this is fine nobody wil die because a phone will have a tele lens instead of a zoom lens

                            The real deal will be, will they or won't they make a underdisplay front cam, if not. I will stick with s9 for another year lol

                              This is completely not about semantics, but about complete false terminology.

                              Its not about a same thing or a same process, even though the outcome may be the same.

                              Its about a Zoom lens that is PHYSICALLY a complete different thing then 3 Prime lenses.

                                  The S22U has a Tele lens. Tele lenses magnify a subject and provide the photographer a narrower view.

                                  This is not a discussion about what is better etc. This is about the right word for the right thing. Very important.

                                  There are already some smartphones with a real zoom lens and then there are many many phones that have a Tele lens. Lets not confuse them.

                                  Photographers that have 3 prime lenses for their system camera like, a 24mm, a 85mm and a 300mm for instance are not going to say that now they have a zoom lens. -_-

                                      This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Noone else is challenging their zoom, at least in terms of hardware.
