Galaxy S23 Ultra selfie camera information leaked
New details have surfaced about the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra and its selfie camera.
So far, we’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s shiny new 200MP main camera, but relatively little about the phone’s selfie camera.
According to serial leaker Ice Universe, Samsung’s next flagship phone will come with a new front-facing camera. It will move from the Samsung ISOCELL Slim GH13LU used in the Galaxy S22 Ultra to a component labeled S5K3LU.
As reported back in December, this will supposedly result in a downgrade from 40MP to 12MP. However, it’s worth remembering that the aforementioned 40MP sensor used pixel binning techniques to produce 10MP shots.
At the very least, this may allow Samsung to add 4K selfie video recording to the Galaxy S23 Ultra package, which has also been unveiled. Indeed, this is what Ice Universe stated in a separate post on the Chinese social network. Weibo. “Portrait videos can go up to 4K 30fps,” the tipster says (via machine translation). The Galaxy S22 Ultra can only play 1080p at 30fps.
He also points out that “portraits are better separated from the background”, suggesting that the new sensor will handle depth perception better. Perhaps this means that the Galaxy S23 Ultra selfie camera will support autofocus, just like the iPhone 14 line.
The addition of 4K selfie video might make you worry about additional heat buildup, but the consultant claims that “the control of heat dissipation in the new phone is relatively good.”
This seems to confirm previous rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S23 line will feature improved cooling systems.
Samsung is announcing its new Galaxy S23 phone family at its Unpacked event on February 1st.
