Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: What is new?
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the new “big thing” of 2023. It was revealed at the Unpacked event yesterday and is the most powerful model of the new S23 series. However, there are few renovations as Samsung decided to stick with the S22 model in most cases. It doesn’t mean that it has the same specs as the older model and surely received important upgrades. Some specs were also leaked by an AT&T store earlier. Let’s take a deeper look.
The biggest renovation of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the camera. It was known that the new ISOCELL HP2 technology would be used on the model, and it got official yesterday. It includes a 200MP main camera, the first Samsung phone to have such a camera.
Moreover, the new model came out with an upgraded processor, using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. These are the main differences between the two models.
Up to 8K 30 fps, video can be captured using the primary camera. You can take pictures using 200MP, 50MP, or 12.5MP cameras. Landscapes and huge crowds can be captured using the 12MP ultrawide.
With the help of Samsung’s 100x Space Zoom technology, the two 10MP telephoto cameras can capture photos. The Galaxy S23 Ultra has optical zoom capabilities of 3x and 10x. The front camera is 12MP, which is way less than S22’s 40MP selfie camera, but now it offers faster autofocus and Super HDR to improve the quality.
