Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
We’ve been hearing a lot about the Galaxy S23 Ultra and how its new camera system will blow all other phones out of the water. And now, an alleged sample photo captured with the unreleased Galaxy S23 Ultra appears to back up those claims.

The three photos of a pumpkin you see below were supposedly captured with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and the Pixel 7 Pro, respectively. The photos originate from “I ice universe” on the Chinese social media network Weibo and appear to have been captured using primary cameras, after which they were manually zoomed in and cropped for a closer look at the details. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, this should be a sample shot of the 200MP main sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra‘s camera captures a lot more details.
Color reproduction is similar across the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. That is: they appear to saturate colors a little bit more than the Google Pixel 7 Pro to make the scenery look more lively and higher in contrast. Whether you prefer Samsung’s or Google’s approach is mostly subjective, but colors aside, the purpose of these three photos is to highlight the level of detail — hence they were zoomed in and cropped manually.

As far as details go, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra blows the other two phones out of the water. Although the photos captured with the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Pixel 7 Pro look good on their own, they almost look washed-out next to the Galaxy S23 Ultra sample shot. The latter shows many more details on the pumpkin, maintaining many more of the imperfections that make this pumpkin unique.

Assuming that this is a sample photo captured with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, keep in mind that the phone is not out yet. Which means it’s running pre-release firmware. The camera software may get even better before the phone hits the shelves next year.

Samsung reportedly intends to announce the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in early January or the first week of February 2023. According to previous leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Ultra will feature a 200MP primary sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and two 10MP telephoto cameras, one with 3x optical zoom and the other with a 10x folded zoom element.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: Design

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will most probably come with circa 6.8-inch display, which is similar to its predecessor Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. The upcoming smartphone’s rough dimensions are 163.4 x 78.1 x 8.8mm which is slightly wider than the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra which measured 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm. The Galaxy S23 Ultra will have the slimmest bezel we have seen in the S series phone so far.

While the size remains the same, Samsung will bring improvements in terms of peak brightness, color accuracy, lowest screen reflectance, and HDR performance.

The placement of the camera module is identical to what we have seen in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, a major change here is that the two small sensors on the right side are flushed in the rear panel. The metal frame of the sensors is larger than what we saw in Galaxy S22 Ultra. The side curves of the smartphone are not that curved this time.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Specs

There have been a lot of leaks and rumors regarding the smartphone in the market as of now. One of them suggests that the smartphone will come powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.

Samsung is going to make a decent impact in the industry as rumors say that it will have 200MP primary shooter which will offer better camera prowess. Another thing to mention is that the device could also come coupled with the S-pen, which we saw in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, as the seem can be found in the renders.

Reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra carries model number SM-S9180, and it will ship with 25W fast charging support. Now, this could be a major turn-off for the audience as its predecessor supports 45W fast charging. However, it is also in the air that the 25W charging variant will only be limited to China. On the global level, the device could also get better charging support.
