Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra – this could be the first 200MP photo sample

Have you ever seen a 200 megapixel photo from a phone? If the rumors are true, the next Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra could feature a huge 200MP camera sensor – and we thought the 108MP S22 Ultra was already a big push. A supposed leak photo comparison from a renowned tipster on Weibo blew the former model out of the water.

While not the most exciting subject, the leaker snaps ice universe are enticing by the sheer difference in image quality. The two photos were both magnified 16x and with AI detail enhancement turned off, so you’d expect them to look distorted.

Although no phone was explicitly mentioned as taking the photos, the megapixel count listed by Ice Universe exactly matches the S22 Ultra and the supposed S23 Ultra camera sensor. Chance?

The “S22 Ultra” shot fades when stretching the pixels to accommodate 16x magnification, but with almost twice as many pixels to play with, the “S23 Ultra” image (apparently a test model) has impressive clarity and a high level of detail.

This seems a massive improvement over the S22 Ultra and we’d like to see if there’s a similar disparity between the two models on close-ups and images without magnification distortion. If this leak is anything to go by, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a real rival on its hands when it comes to best camera phones.

It should be noted of course that megapixels are only one measurement of a camera. Camera software and artificial intelligence play an equally important role in how a phone makes best use of sensors, but cramming in 200MP is a great start to creating perhaps the best phone camera ever. all the time.

We’re excited to see what Samsung’s latest flagship has to offer, but other than the camera, some of the underlying numbers are a little underwhelming. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra benchmarks allegedly leaked and revealed that it would still be slightly behind its direct competitor, the iPhone 14 Pro.
