Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Three Cameras
Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series was launched earlier this year in February, and it has already started garnering significant attention. However, rumors surrounding the next iteration of the series, the Samsung Galaxy S24, have already started surfacing. According to recent reports, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to feature a new telephoto camera solution that could significantly enhance its camera capabilities.
The latest leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will come equipped with a telephoto camera featuring “Gen4” optics and an aperture size ranging from 2.5 to 2.9. This configuration suggests that the Galaxy S24 Ultra may support up to 150x zoom. This is a significant improvement over the zoom capabilities of its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which supports up to 100x zoom.
However, the latest rumors suggest that the Galaxy S24 Ultra will have only three cameras, and the 3x telephoto lens will be merged into the periscope telephoto lens. This means that the periscope telephoto lens will cover a range of 3x to 10x optical zoom. This could be a strategic move on Samsung’s part, as it could allow the company to save on production costs while still offering a high-end camera experience to users.
Periscope telephoto lenses are typically used in smartphones to provide enhanced zoom capabilities while keeping the lens module compact. This is achieved by using a prism to reflect the light and bend the optical path, resulting in a longer focal length than would be possible with a traditional lens. By combining the 3x telephoto lens with the periscope telephoto lens, Samsung could offer a more versatile and efficient camera system on the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
It’s worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra already boasts an impressive camera system, with a quad-camera setup. However, with the rumored upgrades in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung could further cement its position as a leader in the smartphone camera space. However, we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from Samsung before we can know for sure what the Galaxy S24 Ultra will offer.
