Galaxy S22 Ultra: Next flagship Samsung smartphone to feature the same 108 MP and ultra-wide-angle cameras as the Galaxy S21 Ultra with new telephoto lenses in tow
Last month, @UniverseIce revealed numerous details about the Galaxy S22 Ultra's rear-facing cameras, as we reported at the time. At the time, the leaker alleged that the flagship would rely on an unknown 108 MP sensor as its primary camera, along with ultra-wide, 3x zoom and 10x zoom cameras, all 12 MP sensors. However, they now claim to have received updated information, fleshing out the device's camera specifications.
According to @UniverseIce, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature an ISOCELL HM3 sensor, the same one found in the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Reputedly, Samsung has improved the HM3, although its size remains 1/1.33-inches and its pixel width is unchanged at 0.8 μm. The sensor's aperture remains f/1.8 too, so it remains to be seen what improvements Samsung has made.
Additionally, @UniverseIce no longer believes that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have three 12 MP rear-facing cameras. Instead, they assert that the device will have a 12 MP ultra-wide camera with a 1/2.55-inch sensor size, 1.4 µm-wide pixels, an f/2.2 aperture and a 120° field of view (FoV). As far as we can tell, this is the same camera with which Samsung equipped the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Thankfully, there are some new cameras headed the way of Samsung's next premier smartphone. Supposedly, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will utilise two new Sony cameras, both 10 MP sensors. While @UniverseIce has not revealed the sensor names, they state that they will include the following specifications:
- 3X optical zoom, 1/3.52-inch sensor size, 1.12 µm-wide pixels, f/2.4 aperture, 36° FoV
- 10X optical zoom, 1/3.52-inch sensor size, 1.12 µm-wide pixels, f/4.9 aperture, 11° FoV
