Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200MP Camera: A Forgotten Gem?

Published

on


We are living in a social media world where photos take more importance than actual lives. Now, listening to good-quality pictures does not remind me of DSLR cameras anymore because it’s time for the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra device’s 200 MP camera.

Now, there is no need to hang big cameras around the neck for high-quality pictures because the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has a 200 MP camera that captures high-quality photos with enough details and can be easily kept in a pocket.

But here’s the question: The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra arrives with a massive 200 MP camera. Do users literally need that many pixels?

The simple answer is that increasing the pixel count is not enough to capture high-quality pictures, but a great sensor chip can! It doesn’t matter how many pixels there are, but a camera sensor turns the capturing experience from tip to top. For capturing high-resolution pictures, there’s a big roll of camera sensors. And the same is true for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which has a great sensor.

Here’s when your Samsung Galaxy will update to Android 14 / One UI 6.0

Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, is the very first Galaxy device that has a 200 Mega Pixel camera along with an ISOCELL HP2 sensor, which is basically a 1/1.3 inch sensor along with a 0.6-pixel size. The quad camera arrangement of the Galaxy S23 Ultra is: 12 MP ultra wide-angle lens, 10 MP 3x telephoto lens, and 10 MP periscope zoom lens, along with 10x optical zooming capabilities. The eye-catching novelty is the 200 MP camera.

The 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor from Samsung arrives with an effective resolution of 16,384 x 12,288 or 200 million pixels. This 1/1.3-inch sensor has a pixel size of 0.6μm, and it arrives with a tetra-pixel RGB Bayer pattern. The sensor of the brand has the power to capture images at 200 MP at 15 fps, 50 MP at 30 fps, and 12.5 MP at 120 fps.

Galaxy S24 Ultra camera specs confirmed in new leak

As mentioned above, increasing the number of pixels on a smartphone camera does not matter anyhow, except for Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Many other mid-range devices also have 200MP cameras, but they can’t capture as detailed pictures as the Galaxy S23 Ultra can. High-resolution pictures are all about increasing the maximum resolution that the sensor can capture.

Galaxy S23 Ultra’s 200MP camera can capture high-res images that have enough detailed colors, lights, and a natural enhancement in them, so one can easily enlarge and crop them without even losing details.

Samsung Galaxy S25’s advanced AI novelties could boost its price

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brightness & Adaptive Color Tone

Samsung started working on the Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to be launched early next year. This forthcoming device is expected to be priced higher as compared to its predecessor. 

Samsung will expand its high-end S series by introducing a next-gen smartphone series named the Galaxy S25. It’s too early to discuss the Galaxy S25, but leaks and rumors are doing their jobs by offering more details about the upcoming Galaxy S25. This upcoming device is expected to cost more than the current S-series devices. 

The reason behind this report appears to be that a Galaxy S25 will be more expensive than a Galaxy S24 due to its higher manufacturing costs. The US chip designer Qualcomm could push the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 into production in the second half of the year. This latest chipset is expected to boost AI processing. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be a truly advanced chip, but its high-end tech advancements might lead to higher costs, which could translate into a price hike for the upcoming Galaxy S25. The report suggested that, according to a recent prediction from industry watcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm might increase the cost of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 by 25–30% compared to the Gen 3 solution. 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be manufactured on the 3nm N3E process by TSMC; it’s the same technique used to build Apple’s A18 Pro chip. This shift will supposedly cause the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to be 25–30% more expensive than its predecessor. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 costs around $190–$200; by this metric, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might cost $260. 

However, Samsung could deal with the higher expenses of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the Galaxy S25 by absorbing the cost or reducing the quality in other areas, such as the battery or display, but this could be risky, such as switching to its in-house Exynos 2500 chip. The upcoming chipset will be fabricated from TSMC’s most advanced process and should bring performance gains to the CPU, GPU, and NPU (AI processing).
