The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G is the first Galaxy smartphone to feature a 200MP camera and boasts the best camera money can buy right now.
Featuring a state-of-the-art quad-camera setup, the device swanks a cutting-edge Adaptive Pixel camera anchored by the 200 MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor while sporting a larger f/1.7 aperture lens. Users can effortlessly switch to the ultra-wide camera that equips a 12MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture or utilize the dual telephoto and periscope cameras for up to 10X optical zoom or pretty sharp 30x hybrid zoom.
The new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra features a flagship 200MP ISOCELL HP2 primary camera, built around the ISOCELL HM3 that use on Galaxy S22 Ultra. With a 1/1.3-inch sensor and 0.6 μm pixels, the camera can merge up to 16 pixels into one large pixel, resulting in improved low-light performance. One aspect of this is the Snapdragon’s Cognitive ISP driven by AI, which can instantly enhance photos and videos to produce professional-grade camera results, even when in low lighting conditions.
Video capabilities have also been enhanced, with the ability to shoot 8K videos at 30fps, compared to the previous 24 fps. Additionally, the camera offers improved Adaptive VDIS and optical image stabilization (OIS), resulting in smoother videos with an increased angle of ±3°, up from the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s ±1.5°.
By default, the 200MP camera captures 12.5MP photos by merging sixteen pixels into one large pixel, resulting in brighter photos with significantly reduced noise. This is further complemented by the improved lens and wider aperture.
Naturally, the 200MP feature is not a mere marketing gimmick. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can genuinely capture 200MP photos, with a resolution of 16,320 pixels x 12,240 pixels, resulting in files that are approximately 25-35MB in size. This capability, along with the device’s capacity to capture well-lit photos even in low-light conditions, can be showcased to highlight the device’s strengths.
If you’re looking for the ultimate smartphone camera, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra should be at the top of your list. While the 200MP feature is undoubtedly groundbreaking, it may not be practical for most users outside of specific scenarios. Instead, what you’re truly getting is an exceptional 12.5MP camera with large pixels that produce noise-free, high-quality images, particularly in low-light conditions. Its impressive capabilities in low-light night photography are particularly noteworthy.
