Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Camera Modules
As we eagerly await the launch of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, rumors and leaks continue to pour in, offering us a glimpse of what to expect. Today, we delve into the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra camera modules, which are touted to be a photography powerhouse.
Main Camera: A Whopping 200 Megapixels
The star of the show, the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s main camera, is reported to boast an astonishing 200-megapixel resolution. This camera features the ISOCELL HP2SX sensor, a 1/1.3-inch sensor size, and a 0.6μm pixel size. If these specifications hold true, it promises to deliver exceptional detail and clarity in your photos, compared to ISOCELL HP2.
Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera: 12 Megapixels with Sony IMX564 Sensor
The ultra-wide-angle camera is no slouch either, sporting a 12-megapixel resolution and the Sony IMX564 sensor. With a 1/2.55-inch sensor size and 1.4μm pixel size, this camera should excel in capturing expansive vistas and group shots with precision.
Telephoto Capabilities: Versatile and Powerful
The Galaxy S24 Ultra is expected to come equipped with two telephoto lenses:
- 3x Telephoto: This 10-megapixel camera utilizes the Sony IMX754 sensor, with a 1/3.52-inch sensor size and 1.12μm pixel size. It promises to deliver clear and detailed zoomed-in shots.
- 5x Telephoto: A notable change from its predecessor, the 5x telephoto camera features a high-resolution 48-megapixel GMU sensor. Its 1/2.25-inch sensor size and 0.8μm pixel size make it a promising addition for Zoom enthusiasts. The expected aperture is F/3.2, pending confirmation.
Update 15 October: 5x Telephoto is a Sony IMX875 sensor, not a GMU. It is 50MP, 1/2.52” 0.7um, and F3.4. (Source)
100x Hybrid Zoom Lives On
While the 10x telephoto lens has been replaced with the 48-megapixel 5x telephoto with a bigger aperture, Samsung’s commitment to providing an impressive 100x hybrid zoom remains unchanged. However, the real test of these camera modules will be their performance in real-world scenarios. Megapixels and specifications are essential, but the actual user experience will determine whether the Galaxy S24 Ultra lives up to the hype.
As with any leaks and rumors, it’s important to take this information with a grain of salt until Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Photography enthusiasts and smartphone aficionados will undoubtedly be watching closely to see if this device lives up to its potential as the next camera king.
