Despite being several months away from the official launch, key details about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S24 series have already surfaced. This high-end smartphone lineup consists of the Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and the highly anticipated Galaxy S24 Ultra, all of which promise significant upgrades.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra with New 200MP Sensor?

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Review -

Although Samsung has decided to retain the 200MP sensor for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, the choice of sensor differs from the one used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. According to the reputable tipster Ice Universe, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will feature the 200MP ISOCELL HP2SX camera sensor. This sensor represents an optimized iteration of the ISOCELL HP2 found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. It boasts an optical format of 1/1.3-inch and an individual pixel size of 0.7µm. Notably, this sensor is expected to support features like Super Quad Phase Detection autofocus, 8K 30fps video recording, as well as 16-in-1 (12MP) and 4-in-1 (50MP) pixel binning modes.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra has also been confirmed to house an enhanced telephoto camera featuring a 50MP sensor with 0.7µm pixels and a 3x optical zoom lens accompanied by optical image stabilization (OIS). This upgrade is set to significantly improve image detail capture, with reports suggesting it will deliver optical quality 5x zoom thanks to a combination of a larger sensor and in-sensor cropping. Additionally, the phone will continue to utilize the same 12MP selfie camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 10MP telephoto camera (10x zoom) found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Aside from camera enhancements, the Galaxy S24 Ultra boasts an array of impressive specifications. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor and offered with 12GB or 16GB of RAM, as well as storage options ranging from 256GB to a whopping 2TB. Users can expect features such as an in-display fingerprint reader, IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, stereo speakers, a titanium frame, and a robust 5,000mAh battery supported by 45W fast charging. Wireless charging capabilities include 15W fast wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. The phone will debut with Android 14 pre-installed, providing a smooth and feature-rich user experience.

As anticipation builds for the Galaxy S24 series, these revelations suggest that the Galaxy S24 Ultra, in particular, will offer substantial camera improvements and impressive specifications to cater to the demands of high-end smartphone enthusiasts.


Pokdepinion: When it comes to imaging quality, megapixel count doesn’t translate to better quality. I think Samsung made the smart move of maintaining the 200MP figure as reducing it, even if it resulted in better pictures, will make a whole lot of people think we’re getting a downgrade for the main camera.
