Galaxy S22 Ultra 10x zoom cameras with variable focal length confirmed

The Galaxy S22 Ultra might not bring a massive camera update after all -  SamMobile

There are many conflicting rumors about the cameras of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Some say the phone will reuse the S21 Ultra system, while others claim it will be equipped with Samsung’s new 200 MP sensors. Now the well-known leaker Ice Universe has come to lock the specs of the cameras of the high-end smartphone.

According to the leaker, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have two zoom lenses with variable focal length , one at 3x and the other at 10x. The numbers look the same as those of the S21 Ultra, although the new lenses will probably be able to enlarge further.

There will be a slight upgrade to the sensors used in the two telephotos. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will use two 12MP sensors with 1.22μm pixels, compared to the two 10MP sensors with the same pixel size as its predecessor. Both cameras will have Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).

The main camera will be the same, except for a few modifications. It will have a 108MP sensor with 0.8μm pixels. It is not clear whether this is the same HM3 sensor used in the current Ultra or a new generation. However, it has improved OIS.

The leaker states that the ultra wide will have a 12MP sensor with OIS. Electronic stabilization tends to do a pretty good job on an extremely large scale, but OIS offers more possibilities.

Finally, the selfie camera of Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will retain the 40MP sensor and will not be an under-display camera. Samsung’s first UDC has a resolution of only 4MP and there is a lot of room for improvement, so we might see such a camera in the S23.
