The Samsung Galaxy S23 New details of the main camera of the Ultra have been leaked thanks to Twitter tipster Ice world (Opens in a new tab). And it looks like Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone will have a massive main sensor to counteract it iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
In his first tweet about it, IU added extra weight to the rumors that the S23 Ultra will use a 200MP main camera. He adds that he is “100% sure” that the sensor will be an “HP2 unreleased,” referring to the 200-megapixel ISOCELL HP series of sensors made by Samsung Semiconductor. Samsung has already produced HP1 and HP3 sensors in this line, but As IU says in response to another user (Opens in a new tab)HP2 will be the best of the bunch.
Galaxy S22 Ultra, like Galaxy S21 Ultra And the Galaxy S20 Ultra Before that, it uses a 108MP camera, which is actually one of the highest resolution sensors you can find in a smartphone. Moving to 200MP will allow for more detail in shots, or improve brightness by using pixel-binning to stitch pixel light data together, as the 108MP S22 Ultra camera does by default.
In comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to have a new version 48MP main sensor With 8K video support. Obviously, that’s a lot less than the 200-megapixel resolution that Samsung might offer for the S23 Ultra, but megapixels aren’t everything.
And this is where things get interesting. IU’s second tweet About this camera hints that the S23 Ultra’s 200-megapixel sensor will use 0.6 micrometers (µm) pixels. Looking at a previous tweet from IU, this places the HP2 pixel size between HP1 (0.64 µm) and HP3 (0.54 µm). These are just very slight differences in size, but sitting between the two ends will allow the HP2 to balance the total sensor size with the amount of light it can capture.
We’ve seen what camera sensors can do with this resolution Thanks to Motorola X30 Pro / Edge 30 Pro, which uses the HP1 sensor of the main camera with a resolution of 200 megapixels. It will be interesting to see how Samsung manages to build on this with its updated HP3 sensor, its powerful camera processing, and powerful professional camera apps like RAW Expert.
We only hope that if Samsung upgrades the main camera of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, We don’t see teething issues Galaxy S20 Ultra had. Samsung obviously learned from that experience with its latest 108MP camera phones, but the new hardware could cause other issues that would threaten the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s high standing in our site.

Where Samsung really needs to face the iPhone 14 Pro is computational photography and image processing. in our area Galaxy S22 Ultra vs iPhone 13 Pro Max Confronted, we found that the Samsung camera did not work well. The iPhone provided clearer and brighter photos, especially indoors, and selfies looked better with the Apple camera.
We will likely have to wait until January for Samsung to release a version Galaxy S23 Series, including the Ultra model.
