Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to Sport 200MP Camera, Says Latest Leak

Motorola is also expected to launch a 200MP camera smartphone in the coming months.


We have been hearing about the Moto smartphone with the codename Frontier for a few months. As per the leaks, the Moto Frontier will offer a 200MP camera sensor. While Moto might be the first smartphone manufacturer to include a 200MP camera sensor on a smartphone, the Korean tech giant won’t be behind in the smartphone megapixel race. In a new development, the famous Samsung leakster Ice Universe has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will also be equipped with a 200MP camera sensor.

The leaker reveals that the 200MP camera sensor that Samsung will use on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is yet to be announced. This means that even though the camera resolution of the Motorola Frontier and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the same, both might not offer exact same camera performance due to different sensors. Apart from the Motorola Frontier, the Xiaomi 12T Pro is also said to offer a 200MP camera setup.

To those unaware, the Motorola Frontier will come equipped with a 200MP Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor. The company had recently also announced a new 200MP camera sensor – the Samsung ISOCELL HP3. The ISOCELL HP3 features 12% smaller pixels which help it reduce the camera module area by 20%.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor which is expected to be announced in November. Apart from it, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series devices might come equipped with 40MP selfie cameras.

It will be interesting to see how the upcoming 200MP camera smartphones – Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Xiaomi 12T, and Moto Edge 30 Ultra (Frontier)  will compete against each other in terms of photography capabilities. Also, the current-gen Ultra model – the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra received a lot of praises for its photography performance. It will be interesting to see if Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra will be able to outperform its predecessor.
