Early in the next year, Samsung is scheduled to officially launch the Galaxy S24 series, which includes the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra versions. Samsung hasn’t provided any information about the Galaxy S23 series successors, although there have been numerous leaks. Most recently, a tipter claimed that the 50-megapixel telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom will replace the 10x zoom lens on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Comparing this to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the zoom capabilities could perhaps be downgraded.
According to well-known tipper Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) on X, Samsung will upgrade the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s telephoto camera. The upcoming flagship phone, according to the post, will have a 50-megapixel telephoto sensor with a 1/2.52-inch size, 0.7-micron pixels, and a 5-times optical zoom. Additionally, a 10-megapixel sensor with a 3x optical zoom is claimed to be present in the gadget.
According to the tip, this would result in a less effective telephoto camera for the Galaxy S24 Ultra than for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. The latter has two telephoto and periscope lenses with 3x and 5x optical zoom, each with a 50-megapixel sensor with a 1/2.52-inch size, 0.7-m pixel.
If this rumor is accurate, the zoom capabilities of the Galaxy S24 Ultra will be comparable to those of the recently introduced iPhone 15 Pro Max. The camera functions on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S22 Ultra, and Galaxy S21 Ultra might have been downgraded to this. Both a 10-megapixel telephoto sensor with support for 10x optical magnification and a 10-megapixel telephoto sensor are included in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Samsung is expected to introduce its newest non-foldable Galaxy S series flagships in the first half of 2024. While the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ are expected to make their debut with the the company’s own Exynos 2400 SoC in some nations, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is anticipated to run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC in the majority of markets. According to reports, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is available with 12GB RAM + 256GB and 8GB RAM + 128GB of storage. It is expected to have titanium frames and a 200-megapixel primary Samsung ISOCELL HP2SX camera.
