As we get closer to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23, there have been a number of rumors and leaks regarding the new flagship devices. Now, the latest report has revealed some interesting details regarding the Galaxy S23 Ultra cameras.
Sources close to the South Korean tech giant’s supply chain have alerted TheElec to a change in suppliers for some of the image sensors for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Sunny Optical will apparently be the supplier of the upcoming smartphone’s ultra-wide-angle lens and its 10x zoom camera. According to the report, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a composite 10-megapixel sensor with 10x zoom and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, both supplied by Sunny Opticals.
While these sensors will be an improvement over the previous generation Galaxy S22 Ultra, it appears that the selfie camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a smaller resolution sensor. For those who don’t know, the company is planning a major upgrade to the camera setup on the upcoming flagship, with a massive 200-megapixel sensor being the primary sensor. However, the front will have either a 10-megapixel or a 12-megapixel selfie shooter.
That’s down slightly from the 40-megapixel image sensor that’s been on the Ultra models since the Galaxy S21 Ultra. If this report is true, Samsung Electronic is apparently looking to phase out the use of any Sony-made image sensors on its latest generation of flagship smartphones. But keep in mind that this is still only an unconfirmed report, so take this news with a grain of salt for now and stay tuned for more updates.
