Some new information about the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23's cameras has emerged online. They will feature the same 12 MP ultra-wide-angle and 10 MP telephoto lens from the previous generation but upgrade the selfie camera module to a 12 MP sensor.

Although there have been multiple leaks highlighting various aspects of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series, little is known about its camera setup. While the Galaxy S23 Ultra is poised to get Samsung's shiny new 200 MP sensor, the hardware on its younger siblings, the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+, is still shrouded by mystery. Galaxyclub.nl has now offered some additional insight into their cameras.

The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ will use the same 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens found on their predecessors. That isn't surprising, given that Samsung has no qualms recycling camera hardware between multiple generations of non-ultra flagships. Besides, the camera modules on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ are competent and can easily power through another generation. Hence, one can reasonably assume the remaining Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ camera specs to include a 50 MP wide-angle lens and a 10.3 MP telephoto lens (which has already been hinted at earlier). At the very least, both phones are due for a selfie camera upgrade with their new 12 MP modules.

Galaxyclub.nl also confirms earlier leaks about the Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23 Ultra's battery capacities. The former will get a 4,700 mAh cell and the latter 5,000 mAh. Previous reports suggested that fast charging wattages would be capped to 25 Watts across the board, but the Ultra model could bump it up to 45 Watts. The oddly-configured Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC should, however, be able to squeeze more life out of the battery due to its focus on power efficiency.
