New Samsung Galaxy S22 camera leak brings glad tidings to expectant fans
The Galaxy S22 series will likely be unveiled in early February. Even so, leaks have slowly surfaced, in an attempt to provide information about Samsung's next-gen flagship phones. The latest of such purports to give detail about the cameras on the Galaxy S22 and S22+.
According to this new leak, from Dutch outlet GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ will both feature 50 MP main cameras. Rumors have been consistent with that for a while now, and we can assume that the phones will finally make the step up from the 12 MP main shooters on the S21 and S21+. It's unknown what sensor that will be, but Samsung's own GN2 is a possibility.
The real news here is the telephoto camera that will be on the S22 and S22+. The source claims both phones will use a 10 MP telephoto camera. This indicates a return to true optical zoom, after the S20, S20+, S21, S21+ all used 64 MP sensors for digital zoom. Even more interesting is the fact that the S21 Ultra also uses a 10 MP for its 3x telephoto camera. The S22 and S22+ will likely borrow that camera, which assures impressive zoom performance. Lastly, the ultra-wide-angle camera is expected to remain unchanged from the S21 series.
