The Samsung Galaxy S22 series has been a huge hit, so it’s not hard to believe reports that Samsung will be taking a more frequent approach to hardware updates this year. Rumors suggest that at least one of these phones will get a huge camera upgrade, with a mysterious 200MP sensor still in development. Samsung usually reserves its best camera features for the Ultra variants, but it’s too early to discount the other models. Each model may also get a slight bump in battery capacity.
Samsung won’t be the first to market a smartphone with a 200MP camera, and the company is responsible for the sensor in the Motorola X30 Pro, so we wouldn’t bet on the rumored camera upgrades. Samsung is also competing with the 200MP Sony sensor inside the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
Fans are excited to see how Samsung handles this new technology against the competition. Its Galaxy devices always strive for top honors in the camera department, so while we can’t brag about it topping the list before actually seeing it, it’s safe to say it will be a strong contender. Samsung usually packs its smartphone cameras with more than enough tricks to impress casual and professional photographers alike. Trends dictate that we’ll likely see the Galaxy S23 launch as early as February, and the latest word from the grapevine backs that up. Get your wallets in order.
